Five different food handling robots will be showcased by Fanuc, including clean-down protected IP67 and IP69K certified robots performing palletising and food packing assembly tasks.

Delta and articulated arm robots will show high levels of dexterity when handling unpackaged and packaged foods at speeds of up to 180 picks a minute. A variety of end-effector tools will be demonstrated, including vacuum and gripper style, which will effectively pick and place the most delicate of products.

Robots in action will include a cell combining two robots: an M3 delta-style system and a M430 articulated arm robot, which will pick biscuits and place them into blister packs. Following on from this, an articulated arm LR Mate 200iD will pack the blister packs into retail trays. To represent packing further down the production line, two palletising robots a Fanuc M710iC/50 and an M410-iC/185 will demonstrate palletising of both trays and bulk bags.

Fanuc will also demonstrate its Dual Check Safety (DCS) Position & Speed Check software a package of safety options integrated into the company's R30iA and R30iB robot controllers to ensure safe monitoring of robot position and speed.
