The launch of ClamPAC marks the first product to be released by Adept's new packaging solutions group. The group is focused on delivering standard pre-engineered cells that perform specific application tasks. Each model of Packaging Automation Cells, including the Adept ClamPAC, is built upon Adept's intelligent robotic products.
ClamPAC is a standardized modular system that Adept Packaging Solutions adapts to each customer's production line. Before delivery, customer-specific modifications are made based on the size and design of the clamshells, the case sizes and the speed of the line. This approach makes it faster and more cost effective for customers to deploy a robotic solution for case packing clamshells.
"This is an exciting development for food processors. It is the first robotic solution in the world to be pre-engineered and standardized to case pack clamshells," said
Key to the unique design of ClamPAC solutions are the new SoftPIC™ grippers and graspers. Adept selects the ideal SoftPIC grippers or graspers specifically for each customer's range of products. Made of soft silicone that conforms to the shape of the clamshell, SoftPIC grippers provide a direct vacuum path to the product, helping the system achieve gentle handling and reliable operation at very high speeds. For lines that package multiple clamshell sizes and/or designs, the SoftPIC grippers can be changed in less than two minutes.
