Global Company Contracts Adaptec to Install Automated Plate Handling Cell

A global company has recently contracted Adaptec to aid in the development and installation of a new robotic plate handling system. The cell features a FANUC LR Mate series robot that utilizes FANUC iRVision to quickly and accurately locate parts on a conveyor, orient itself, pick the part at the center, and place the part at a specific orientation onto a trademark labeling system. The system is designed for quick on-the-fly changes to different part numbers with varying sizes and shapes. Due to plant shutdown requirements, total project time is less than 8 weeks from initial equipment order to production.
