R A Rodriguez will be showing the Universal Robot, a lightweight robotic arm that provides easy automation, at The Total Processing and Packaging Exhibition. It will demonstrate how complementary technology can now add intelligence and even greater scope to its application.

The Universal Robot is an entry- level automation device that provides six axes of movement and is quick to install. It can be easily moved around the factory and the user interface is said to be simple to learn. The robot can be up and running in less than an hour, even when it's in the hands of an inexperienced operator.

Two models complete the range, respectively able to handle payloads up to five and 10 kilograms. Both will feature on the Rodriguez stand, one demonstrating added value automation and the other providing the opportunity for visitors to try the robot out themselves.

The company will also be demonstrating its expertise in the field of palletising. Its IEF Werner systems are designed to provide the efficient transfer of work pieces to and from assembly lines, often integrating end-of-line processes such as part marking and testing.
