The system comprises of a denester to separate the clamshells, an ABB FlexPicker high speed picking robot with PickMaster vision software and a lid closing system.
The vision system coupled to the robot allows randomly placed product to be picked accurately off a moving infeed conveyor, rotated to the correct orientation and placed into a moving clamshell. Any number of items can be placed onto the clamshell at different heights or placement patterns.
The Clamshell Loader can accommodate a variety of clamshell sizes with fast changeover between products. Hot melt lid gluing can also be incorporated to seal the lids or provide tamper evidence.
The key to the Clamshell loader is the ABB FlexPicker, capable of moving at 10 metres per second and accelerating at 100m/s2. The FlexPicker is available in 1kg or 2 kg models and is available in standard, or washdown versions.
