ABB has announced the release of a stainless steel version of its high-speed picking robot - the top mounted IRB 340.
The robot performs at up to 150 picks per minute, which is the same as the standard version of the IRB 340.
The new stainless steel robot meets the most stringent industry regulations and practices worldwide ensuring it can be applied to all food handling applications.
Food manufacturers can achieve cost savings with the stainless steel model as the food zone no longer needs to be protected from the robot system, a requirement in many markets today.
The new stainless steel version is suitable for use in food, pharmaceutical, medial and electronics applications.
