Robotics system integrator and FANUC strategic partner, Pacepacker Services, believes that the latest addition to FANUC's M-410i range of palletising robots, the M-410iB/140H, will meet demand for a super fast yet compact robot which is often required for those wanting to increase output in limited spaces.
As a system integrator who has designed and installed over 400 bag and box palletising solutions for a wide range of applications, Pacepacker, are well placed to predict a high level of interest for this robot, which can perform cycles in less than two seconds, has a payload of 140kg, and is designed with a slimmer arm and wrist making it the most compact in the M-410i range. "The new arm design makes the robot more compact and because of its speed it is able to keep up with many of the Form, Fill & Seal systems used in today's production environments," comments Pacepacker Business Development Manager, Paul Wilkinson.
The M-410iB/140H is the fastest in its class and well suited for palletising multiple products onto multiple pallets using barcode scanning or vision systems if needed. It will also enable Pacepacker to continue its philosophy of providing its customers with uncomplicated competitive solutions: "Design simplicity is how we approach all projects and is key to a successful installation. This new robot enables us to offer a single robot palletising system capable of packing multiple products in different variations on multiple pallets. This not only negates the need for multiple robots, which reduces cost, but can provide our clients with a flexible optimal solution that can be upgraded as their business grows," enthuses Paul.
Over a fifteen year long history with FANUC, Pacepacker has been instrumental in increasing the penetration of robotics into many industry sectors. Through Pacepacker's adoption of the latest technologies, the full benefit of automation systems can be realised by those who have previously not considered it a viable option.
