Epson Robots has unveiled a range of washdown robots for the automation of unwrapped food transportation lines.
The chemical cleanable robots, distributed through Motion Solutions Australia, such as the C3-IP67 version, aim to reduce the variation in quality through human error when performing repetitive tasks.
Risk management is required in the perishable food industry to prevent contamination caused by human intervention.
Robot automation reduces costs of operation by cutting the number of production line workers, while simultaneously improving yields through increased quality and throughput, claim Epson.
Other benefits include food-grade grease used for oil seal lubrication and it being designed for installation in sealed environments such as inside an isolator.
