Fanuc Robotics robot receives USDA acceptance
Fanuc Robotics America says its M-430iA/2F high-speed,
food picking robot is the only robot that meets the hygiene requirements for
meat and poultry processing, and receive equipment acceptance from the USDA.
â€œWe'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,â€ said Sumeet
Vispute, product manager, picking, packing, and palletizing. â€œThe 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.â€
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.
â€œThe 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,â€ added Vispute.
