USDA Accepted FANUC M-430iA Food Robot Picks & Places Packs of Gum for Packaging

 
 

Designed specifically for food washdown environments, the FANUC M-430iA food robot is capable of picking primary food and packaged products. A FANUC M-430iA robot equipped with iRVision Visual Tracking picks randomly oriented packs of gum from an infeed conveyor and places them on an outfeed conveyor.

A second invert-mounted FANUC M-430iA robot with iRVision picks the remaining packs of gum from the same infeed conveyor and places them on the same outfeed conveyor. A third M-430iA robot positioned downstream on the outfeed conveyor picks the group of six parts at once and places them back on the infeed conveyor. The M-430iA high-speed, food picking robot is the first robot to meet the hygiene requirements for meat and poultry processing, and receive equipment acceptance from the United States Department of Agriculture.
