“We're extremely proud that the M-430iA is built in accordance with the USDA, AMS hygiene requirements for the materials, design, and fabrication of equipment used in the preparation and packaging of food products,” said Sumeet Vispute, product manager, picking, packing, and palletizing. “The M-430iA robot has met or exceeded the USDA, AMS criteria as published in the NSF/ANSI/3-A 14159-1 2002 specifications, passed inspection, and earned the right to bear the USDA, AMS Meat and Poultry Accepted Equipment logo.”
Designed specifically for food washdown environments, the robot is capable of picking primary food and packaged products at speeds up to 120 cycles/min on a continuous basis while using visual line tracking. Additionally, the compact robot can be mounted in a variety of positions including floor, wall or invert, thereby maximising flexibility.
“The M-430iA is the ideal solution in terms of speed and flexibility, and now the USDA acceptance allows us to help a greater number of food customers meet today's high quality/cleanliness standards,” added Vispute.
