Synerlink Installs Adept Quattro Robots at Food Processing Plants

Under the Aprium-Technology brand featuring Adept Technology’s Adept Quattro robots, Synerlink provides end-of-line robotic solutions.

The versatile Quattro robots can be adopted for seamless and rapid stacking up of cups of yogurts and other food products before they are subjected to multipacking or case packing process. These robots are user-friendly and ensure simple maintenance.

Since the last two years, 20 Quattro robots have been installed by Aprium-Technology in eight plants, with North America and Europe as its major targets. New production lines that manufacture dairy products packed in cups ranging from 30 g to 1 kg in size spanned the major part. Configuration of two or four per line was carried out by the robots in order to gain the required throughput, followed by stacking the cups to enter case packing and multipacks. The multipacks ranges from 2- to 24-count in size, while the case packing ranges from 16- to 48-count.

Based on Adept’s proprietary SoftPIC gripping technology, the Quattro robot's end-of-arm tooling enables stacking of yogurt cups. Designed with soft silicone, these SoftPIC grippers precisely fit to the product’s shape, creating a strong vacuum path through which the robots can easily and meticulously handle the products at accelerated speeds.

Quattro robot’s advanced control algorithms and patented four-arm design make it a ideal adoption for seamless motion, high-throughput applications. Using the four-arm design, the robots can perform a wide range of motion and can precisely handle payloads of up to 6 kg, ensuring smooth motion at high speeds. Additionally, it provides 23% reduction in energy utilization than conventional three-arm delta robots. The ultra-compact controls and embedded amplifiers act as power sources for Quattro, in addition to accelerating cycle times and mitigating the robot’s footprint.
