September 28, 2010 - Adept Technology announces the Packaging Automation Cell (PAC), a platform for next generation high-speed primary packaging applications, requiring both flexible and sanitary processing. The packaging cell is built with a rigid stainless steel frame for wash down capabilities and integrated with products from Adept, such as a USDA-accepted robot, ultra-compact motion and vision controllers, touch-screen operator interface, and predefined programming recipes for advanced conveyor-tracking and vision-guidance.The platform can be rapidly deployed due to the extensive engineering and planning associated with bringing the system to market, which benefits end-users by reducing the total cost of ownership and aids integrators through faster project turns. Adept‚Äôs partners and integrators add value by implementing best practices in optimizing the solution to deliver high-throughput applications rather than focusing on robotic cell fundamentals such as sanitary frame layout and design. The platform‚Äôs state-of-the-art software helps customers to build specific applications without the need of complex and lengthy programming.The packaging industry is being transformed as product variants proliferate, new retail models evolve, and sustainable packaging becomes the norm. Traditional packaging machinery can‚Äôt adapt to this new paradigm and manual labor is becoming less viable in almost all markets.
