Staubli Telford, 29.08.2011 –  At the annual PPMA exhibition in September, Stäubli Robotics will have a strong presence, showcasing its high performance robots designed for fast handling and complex operations in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.

A highlight of our product offering is Stäubli’s HE robot range (Humid Environment), from TX60 to TX200, designed for high-humidity production , wet spray and wash down areas, the HE robot is often used where cleaning routines require the highest standards of hygiene. It is hermetically sealed, and carries the IP rating 65, while the wrist joint has a rating of IP67, providing the possibility of submersion in liquid. Its exterior surfaces are specially treated to resist corrosion or made of stainless steel.

With the introduction of another highly specialized robot, Stericlean, Stäubli further reaffirms its position as a market leader. This six-axis robot meets GMP requirements and is compatible with operation in a  Grade A environment. With specialized lip seals, critical components made of stainless steel, and specific exterior surface make the Stericlean ideally suited to work in production areas requiring the use of vapor hydrogen peroxide (VHP) for sterilisation. This robot makes it possible to automate filling processes under sterile conditions for the first time ever.

Stäubli’s ultra-precise four-axis TS SCARA robots, capable of up to 140 picks per minute, set new standards for exacting applications in packaging and food production. These state-of-the-art robots provide the capability of high speed, precise picking of a range of products, offering an economical alternative for more and more applications.

The TS series consists of the TS40, TS60 and TS80, featuring 400-, 600- and 800-millimeter ranges at a two-kilogram nominal load with a maximum operational payload of eight kg. These SCARA models, with optional bellows, offer exceptional performance including accuracy of +/- 0.01 millimeter making them ideally suited for high speed and critical cycle operations.

Standard six-axis robots from the TX line are also tailored to packaging processes and food industry production. Featuring unique, fully enclosed construction and integrated drive technology, they meet Cleanroom ISO-norm 5 requirements off the shelf; while an optional Cleanroom model is available that meets Cleanroom ISO-norm 4. All six-axis models are distinguished by their legendary precision, reliability, and fast cycle times.

For years now, Stäubli has focused on operations in packing and food production to the extent that we now offer a range of robots for standardised applications, as well as those requiring specialised products for dedicated applications. Whether it is cleaning routines in the food industry, sterile filling, cheese cutting in humid and wet environments or fast packaging, Stäubli has the optimal solution for nearly any challenge.
