Company has selected the ABB IRB 360 FlexPicker™ robot for its new series of high-speed robotic food picking systems. The KLEENPick series, which features the IP69k stainless steel version of the FlexPicker, is designed to combat microbiological contamination in food processing and address overall safety and sanitation concerns in food handling. The only delta robot on the market available in washdown, stainless washdown and cleanroom versions with ratings as high as IP69K, the FlexPicker is hygienically designed for use in packaging applications with open food, such as meat, dairy products and ready-made meals. The robot has been configured to enable easy cleaning and reduced maintenance, and is available in a variety of configurations to meet payload, performance, working range and sanitation requirements. A smaller footprint preserves valuable production space and allows the system to be built or retrofitted into new or existing production lines. The series is available as a single robot, single product in-feed cell, as well as a multiple in-feed, multiple robot manufacturing system.
