Since 1983, Adept Technology has been a leader in robotic packaging automation. Adept’s Packaging Automation Cell, Adept PAC is designed to reduce the cost and complexity of automating packaging for food processors. Adept PAC reduces the total cost of ownership by delivering a standardized, fully-integrated solution that can be dropped into any production line.
The Adept ClamPAC™ is the first task-specific model of the Adept PAC product line which packs clamshells into cases at high speeds. It reduces the food processor’s integration complexity and deployment time while providing the flexibility, dexterity and speed of a world-class robotic solution. ClamPAC is a standardized modular system that Adept Packaging Solutions adapts to each customer’s production line. Before delivery, customer-specific modifications are made based on the size and design of the clamshells, the case sizes and the speed of the line. This approach makes it faster and more cost effective for customers to deploy a robotic solution for case packing clamshells.
Key to the unique design of ClamPAC solutions are the new SoftPIC™ grippers and graspers. Adept selects the ideal SoftPIC grippers or graspers specifically for each customer’s range of products. Made of soft silicone that conforms to the shape of the clamshell, SoftPIC grippers provide a direct vacuum path to the product, helping the system achieve gentle handling and reliable operation at very high speeds. For lines that package multiple clamshell sizes and/or designs, the SoftPIC grippers can be changed in less than two minutes.
