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

The Quattro robot's end-of-arm tooling used to handle the yogurt cups is Adept's proprietary SoftPIC™ gripping technology. These SoftPIC grippers are made of soft silicone that conforms to the shape of the product to provide a strong vacuum path, which enables the robots to handle the products gently and reliably at very high speeds.

"Through our engineering department, Synerlink, we sell complete lines to Danone and to other food processors around the world. It is very important that we provide systems that are very reliable and easy to learn to use so operators can maximize each machine's potential," explained Freiher. "One measure of success is uptime – not just the efficiency level of any one machine itself, but in tandem with other equipment on the full production line. The zones that include Quattro are operating at 98 percent efficiency. The Quattro robot's ability to speed changeovers, ease sanitation, reduce maintenance and simplify operation is all a part of that high efficiency."

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.
