ABB displays Stainless FlexPicker

ABB Robotics will display several new packaging robots at Pack Expo 2009, happening 5-7 October at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The ABB exhibit will feature a completely operational packaging line integrating four different robots into an efficient picking, packing and palletizing system. The demo line includes: a second generation IRB 360 Stainless Steel FlexPicker Clean Room ISO class 5 delta robot, picking and sorting randomly placed products of different shapes and sizes, and placing them uniformly on two different conveyors; an IRB 260 performing the case packing function, picking up the sorted product and loading it into plastic bins; an IRB 660 palletizing the bins; and an IRB 140 depalletizing the bins, starting the loop over again by dumping the product back onto the initial feed line. It is ABB’s goal to show potential customers every aspect of a complete packaging line, while highlighting the new IRB 360 Stainless FlexPicker.
