SCOTT have been appointed as a local sales agent for Applied Robotics products which include:
Heavy Duty Bag Gripper
Applied Robotics’ heavy duty bag gripper is designed for palletizing applications involving the placement of various sizes and weights of bags over 50 lbs. It features split-fork design and clamp pads to prevent misalignment and maintain palletizing consistency.
Features and Benefits
When food items are packaged and headed down the conveyor belt for palletizing, often the odd piece is misaligned. This is one reason the food processing industry turns to Applied Robotics for solutions like collision sensors or grippers that quickly detect positioning issues, handle food safely and protect the larger investment in robotics equipment. Another issue is cleanliness. There is nothing more important when working with food than keeping things sanitary.
Applied Robotics’ Meat Gripper is the only gripper to earn acceptance by the USDA. It is designed to handle all types of meats, bacon, fish, and cheese in various forms; fresh, frozen and sliced. The rapid open & close times and smooth movement make it ideal for use on today’s high-speed robots. The unique pickup head allows portions or groups of portions to be loaded gently, accurately and quickly into various types of packaging.
The great flexibility of a robot is the ability to utilise a large range of tools available on the market enabling many different functions to be undertaken.
Force and Torque Sensors
Sensor systems are now able to measure force and torque across all axis that the robot operates on. An example is a complex assembly robot that may be operating on 6 different axes.
A major use for robots is found in the areas of deburring, as part of the engineering process. Tools today include robust, high-speed, light-weight air tools with axially compliant cutting files enabling extremely accurate and complex manufacturing capabilities to be set up.
With such a range of accessories available quick-change robotic tool changer provide the flexibility to automatically change end-effectors or other peripheral tools, enabling much more flexibility in the total robotic solution being implemented.
