Synerlink, The Engineering Department Of Arcil, Selects Adept Quattro(TM) Robots

PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synerlink, the integrator of the packaging machine manufacturer Arcil, offers end-of-line robotic solutions under the Aprium-Technology brand that feature Adept Quattro™ robots from Adept Technology (Nasdaq:ADEP). Used to gently stack cups of yogurts and other food products at very high speeds prior to multipacking or case packing, the flexible Quattro robots are easy to deploy and easy to maintain.

"Before we selected Adept's Quattro robot, we considered other technology," said Charles-Antoine Freiher, Business Unit Manager of the Aprium-Technology brand. "Compared to pneumatic stacking systems, robots have more flexibility to handle a wide variety of product sizes and stacking configurations with very little downtime for changeovers. We choose Quattro because of its payload, speed and connectivity. The fact that Adept's programming language is open and OMAC-compatible makes it very easy to integrate and maintain Quattro."

Aprium-Technology has installed 20 Quattro robots in 8 plants over the past two years, mainly in Europe and North America. Most were new production lines producing dairy products packed in cups that range in size from 30 gr to 1 kg (1 oz to 2.2 lb). The robots, typically configured two or four per line to achieve the necessary throughput, are stacking the cups for multipacks and case packing. The multipacks range in size from 2- to 24-count and the cases range from 16- to 48-count.

"Changeovers are achieved on Quattro within the program," noted Freiher. "The settings for each product and stacking configuration are saved in the robot's memory so operators can quickly recall the correct settings during changeovers. Some changes are achieved fully automatically with no mechanical adjustments or change parts required. Other changes require the tool on the end of the robot's arm to be changed, which can be accomplished in less than two minutes."
