Meat Gripper

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.
