Features

Easily fitted to implement low-cost automation of food manufacturing processes

To fit the jacket, simply place it over the robot and tie the drawstrings to hold it in place. Then remove from the robot for cleaning as necessary. Alternatively, the jacket can be secured to a pedestal with a dedicated plate*. It can also be cleaned while fitted to the robot by spraying with water or wiping with a moist cloth.

*Dedicated plate should be supplied by customers.

Compatible with chemicals used in food manufacturing processing

The jacket is resistant to a variety of chemicals, ensuring that it will remain clean and sanitary at all times.

Stow wiring by using the dedicated mounting flange

Since cables can be routed from inside the robot protective jacket for food processing through holes in the mounting flange, robot hand cables can be stowed inside the jacket.

Application


  • Bento Box Dish-up Robot

    Wearing a hypochlorous acid resistance robot jacket designed for DENSO Robotics. Pick and place ingredients to bento-box.
    * We adapt a food gripper "SOFTmaticsTM" manufactured by Nitta Corporation (under development).

Note1:It can't be used for Communication Interface Flange-A, UL specifications, and Cleanroom type.
Note2:Materials used in parts of this product that may come into contact with food comply with the Specifications and Standards for Food and Food Additives under the Food Sanitation Act (i.e., they meet the requirements set forth in Section 3.
