"Our robotic case packing systems consistently handle the clamshells more gently than laborers did and much more gently than our old drop door case packers. Transitioning to the Adept systems gave us the gentle handing we needed to redesign our clamshells," said Torquato. "We used to have a shrink band on the clamshell, which we wanted to eliminate to take PVC out of the environment. Our new patented clamshells feature a lid that's sonically welded to the tub. The Adept system is gentle enough to lift the clamshell by its lid and not break the easy-open perforation."One component of ClamPAC that contributes to the system's gentle handling at high speeds is the design of its SoftPIC™ grippers. Selected specifically for each customer's range of products, SoftPIC grippers are made of soft silicon that conforms to the shape of the clamshell and provides a direct vacuum path to the product. For lines that handle multiple clamshell sizes or designs, the SoftPIC grippers can be changed in less than two minutes.
