Arcil's Synerlink selects Adept Quattro robots
The Quattro robot’s end-of-arm tooling used to handle the yogurt cups is a proprietary gripping technology that conforms to the shape of the product to provide a strong vacuum path.
The patented four-arm design and advanced control algorithms of the Quattro robot make it the ideal solution for smooth motion, high-throughput applications. The four-arm design helps it achieve a large range of motion and handle payloads of up to 6 kg (13.2 lb) with superior accuracy and smooth motion at high speeds while reducing energy use by 23% compared to traditional three-arm delta robots. Quattro is powered by ultra-compact controls and embedded amplifiers, which speeds cycle times and reduces the footprint of the robot.
“The size of the Quattro robot’s controller is very compact compared to other robots. It is also very easy to integrate,” noted Freiher. “Quattro also has the best conveyor tracking capabilities of any robot I’ve seen, which contributes to its high speed and accuracy.”
“At Synerlink, we offer integrated solutions in packaging machinery that are years ahead of the competition. That is why we integrate technology specialists such as Adept. We want to provide our shelf-ready solutions to the largest international businesses as well as to more local independent food producers. That’s one of the reasons we choose the Adept Quattro.” concluded Freiher.
