Omron hi-speed food robot at for PPMA Show 2017
Omron new products for PPMA Show 2017
At the PPMA 2017, the UK trade show for processing and packaging machinery, from 26-28 September at the NEC, Birmingham, Omron we will be demonstrating, for the first time in the UK, Quattro, the world’s fastest Delta robot.
With a pick rate of 300 parts per minute, the Quattro’s unique 4 arm design provides speed and flexibility to enable even the most challenging of pick and place applications. Quattro is the only Delta robot which is USDA certified and constructed with materials that are safe for primary food handling, making it more hygienically-advanced than existing robots on the market.
Robot has 30% more reach
The key to the advanced performance of the Quattro Delta robot is a unique, patented, four arm rotational platform, which offers significant advantages over traditional three arm Delta robots. The fourth arm allows the robot to reach up to 30% further than traditional designs, facilitating a larger operational area, including the ability to access wider conveyors. The extra arm also allows the robot to tilt, meaning the load can be placed at a different angle than it is picked – a real game changer for packaging and other automation applications.
As part of the exhibit, Omron’s AIV (Automated Intelligent Vehicle) will be on show, demonstrating solutions for intralogistics and line replenishment tasks. The cutting-edge LD platform offers the ideal solution for manufacturers looking to gain efficiencies by automating repetitive material handling operations.
Gesture control software
Complementing the Quattro Delta and AIV, will be a preview of the futuristic OKAO software. The demonstration will show powerful gesture control over the production process, as well as how facial recognition can be used to unlock different levels of access to control functions and information. We will also demonstrate a new 4.0 ready visualization platform, giving a complete visual representation of critical machine and production data.
