Adept Technology Introduces ClamPAC™ Robotic Packaging Automation Cell for Case Packing Clamshells

Aug 08, 2012

 Adept ClamPAC

Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP),a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions, announces the introduction of the new Adept ClamPAC™ at Pack Expo booth #S-1454. This robotic Packaging Automation Cell, which gently packs clamshells into cases at high speeds, is designed to reduce the total cost of ownership by delivering a standardized, fully-integrated solution that can be dropped into any line. ClamPAC reduces the food processor's integration complexity and deployment time while providing the flexibility, dexterity and speed of a world-class robotic solution.

The Adept ClamPAC is the first task-specific model of the Adept PAC product line which packs clamshells into cases at high speeds.

The launch of ClamPAC marks the first product to be released by Adept's new packaging solutions group. The group is focused on delivering standard pre-engineered cells that perform specific application tasks. Each model of Packaging Automation Cells, including the Adept ClamPAC, is built upon Adept's intelligent robotic products.

ClamPAC is a standardized modular system that Adept Packaging Solutions adapts to each customer's production line. Before delivery, customer-specific modifications are made based on the size and design of the clamshells, the case sizes and the speed of the line. This approach makes it faster and more cost effective for customers to deploy a robotic solution for case packing clamshells.

"This is an exciting development for food processors. It is the first robotic solution in the world to be pre-engineered and standardized to case pack clamshells," said John Boutsikaris, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Adept. "We're getting great feedback from customers who have installed ClamPAC about its ease of deployment and ease of use as well as its gentle handling and reliability."

Key to the unique design of ClamPAC solutions are the new SoftPIC™ grippers and graspers. Adept selects the ideal SoftPIC grippers or graspers specifically for each customer's range of products. Made of soft silicone that conforms to the shape of the clamshell, SoftPIC grippers provide a direct vacuum path to the product, helping the system achieve gentle handling and reliable operation at very high speeds. For lines that package multiple clamshell sizes and/or designs, the SoftPIC grippers can be changed in less than two minutes.
