now a FANUC integrator, introduced the FANUC robot at the 1999 Powder
& Bulk Solids Show. The robot is a recent addition to SSCC's
extended product line. As technology evolves, manufacturing is increasingly
turning to robotics to reduce human exposure to harsh environments,
increase safety and decrease injuries.
The FANUC robot is suited to replace the manual picking, placing
and palletizing of valve bags. The robot picks the bag from a magazine,
and then places it on a filler spout. Once the bag is filled, the
robot removes the bag and stacks it on a pallet in a pre-determined
pattern resulting in processing rates of about five bags a minute.
Additional services include engineering, service and designing
end of arm tools (EOAT) for the robot.
