ESS Technologies, Inc.
3160 State St.
Blacksburg, VA, 24060
USA



Press release date: February 19, 2014

ESS has redesigned their popular Robotic Mini Pallet Cell to incorporate FANUC's new compact robot controller, the Model R-30iB "A-Cabinet." The front panel of the stackable controller A-cabinet fits flush with the Category 4 interlocked and gasketed safety guarding system to create a streamlined robotic cell that does not require additional floor space for the robot controller. Join ESS Technologies at Interphex NY March 18-20, 2014, Javits Center, New York, NY in Booth # 3177 to view the latest generation Robotic Mini Pallet Cell with this even smaller footprint. Contact ESS Technologies for a free exhibit hall pass.

Previous ESS pallet cell layouts incorporated the robust but bulky B-cabinet robot controller, which could not be stacked or installed flush with the guarding due to its size and shape. By replacing the controller with the powerful, if much smaller A-Cabinet, ESS engineers reduced the overall size of the pallet cell while increasing functionality and user-friendliness. ESS integrates a FANUC multi-axis robot with our in-house custom-designed end-of-arm robotic tooling (EOAT) that offers a very fast changeover time (5 minutes or less, typically). The upgraded R-30iB A-cabinet controller also features a redesigned, lightweight 4D graphic iPendant that offers unprecedented ease of use. The energy saving controller design minimizes power consumption for the robotic cell. The controller comes equipped with fully-integrated iRVision hardware for easy error-proofing, 2D and 3D robot guidance standard.

ESS integrates a FANUC M-20iA 6-axis robot with our own custom-designed end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) and programs the cell to handle the required pack pattern. The complete palletizing system includes a case infeed conveyor, Category 4 interlocked and gasketed polycarbonate safety guarding, robot tooling and programming for one case size. ESS can design the EOAT to pick one case or multiple cases at a time and can be customized to handle other processes, such as pallet placement, deck sheet / tier sheet placement, and case inspection with reject. The Robotic Mini Pallet Cell is available in single and dual pallet configurations and can palletize up to 20-25 cases per minute.
