Robotic technology provider Adept Technology has launched primary and secondary food packaging robots and peripherals for food processing companies.
The robots and peripherals will enable the companies meet new government safety and sanitation standards, while offering lower labor costs and future-proof packaging lines.
According to the US-based company, the companies can improve their productivity gains and safety with Adept’s robotic components, application software, and SoftPIC gripper/grasper technology.
Adept marketing senior vice president Glenn Hewson said with the help of robotic automation, processors can minimize distribution labor costs and do away with repacking at distribution warehouses.
"Food processors are looking to robotic automation with integrated vision and conveyor control to provide the speed and efficiency of hard automation but with flexibility for quick changeover between products," Hewson added.
Adept’s food packaging technologies include the Adept Quattro s650HS, PackXpert software and SoftPIC gripping/grasping technology.
