Starview Packaging Machinery Integrates with ESS TaskMate® Robotic Blister Loading Demonstration at Pack Expo
ESS integrates the TaskMate Robotic Blister Loading System with a Starview Model FAB Series rotary blister sealing machine to create a fully automatic system for loading and sealing blister packages.
Blacksburg (I-Newswire) August 30, 2013 - The ESS robotic cell combines a FANUC LR Mate 200iC robot with ESS-designed end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) to create a system that reduces repetitive motion in loading blister sealing machines and other types of packaging machinery. ESS Technologies, Inc. will be demonstrating the TaskMate® with our OEM partner, Starview Packaging Machinery, at Pack Expo 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada, September 23-25, 2013. The demonstration will be located in Starview's booth #C-2310. ESS Technologies, Inc. and Starview project engineers will be available in the booth to discuss the system and its application in a wide variety of packaging lines.
For the Pack Expo demonstration, the Starview Model FAB8-1418 blister packaging machine will load empty blisters into 1x2 configured sealing fixtures. The integrated TaskMate® Robotic Blister Loading System uses custom, vacuum EOAT to pick two CD-ROMs from a fixture and load them into the blisters. The machine then automatically indexes to the card back placement and blister sealing stations. The TaskMate® system works in a number of packaging environments, including clean room settings.
The compact tabletop platform design with Category 4 interlocked and gasketed polycarbonate safety guarding and "quick connect" EOAT easily integrates with most process or packaging equipment. Enhanced motion control, speed, vision, and robotic dexterity make the TaskMate® system ideal for repetitive pick and place applications. The robot EOAT can be designed to handle one or multiple products in a single pick. Spreading mechanisms allow the tooling to fan the picked product to fit the any blister platen configuration (e.g., 1x2, 1x4, 2x2, 2x4, 2x5, etc.) allowing the robotic loader to easily match cycle speeds and maximize the productivity of the blister packaging machine. With numerous robotic blister loaders installed throughout North America, ESS is an experienced integrator with a proven track record of providing reliable, innovative packaging machinery solutions.
