Adept Technology Delivers Robotic-Automation Products Specifically Designed For Primary And Secondary Food Packaging Applications

Friday, September 20, 2013

Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions and services, announced the availability of primary and secondary food packaging robots and peripherals that are designed specifically to help food processing companies to meet new government safety and sanitation mandates, lower plant operating costs, decrease waste and future-proof packaging lines.

Robotic automation is a proven solution for both primary and secondary food-packaging lines, which typically require rapid, repetitive, labor-intensive product handling. A primary or secondary packaging line that combines Adept's robotic components, application software, and game-changing SoftPIC gripper/grasper technology can yield significant productivity gains while improving safety and sanitary conditions.

"Food processors are looking to robotic automation with integrated vision and conveyor control to provide the speed and efficiency of hard automation but with flexibility for quick changeover between products," states Glenn Hewson, Adept Senior Vice President of Marketing. Our game-changing SoftPIC grippers are designed specifically for primary packaging of raw protein and fruits and vegetables, and when combined with Adept's industry-leading vision guidance and conveyor-tracking enable a variety of products to be packaged on the same line."

Hewson further adds "Robotic automation can also help processors dramatically lower distribution labor costs by packing mixed-product cases for specific store orders on the secondary packaging line and eliminating repacking at distribution warehouses."

Adept's differentiating food packaging innovations include the Adept Quattro™ s650HS, the world's only USDA-approved robot; PackXpert™ a powerful software solution for the rapid development of robotic packaging applications; SoftPIC™ advanced gripping/grasping technology that supports handling different products in a variety of packaging patterns from a single production line; and industry-leading integrated vision and conveyor tracking, for applications where robots must package products that are presented randomly on a moving conveyor belt.

Adept will be showing its SoftPIC grippers and graspers at Pack Expo Las Vegas, September 23 – 26 exclusively in the JMP Engineering booth S6998.
