Increased flexibility for shelf-ready packaging lines is being offered by food-packaging automation specialist Abar with its new LR-80TCR Loading System.

A Fanuc Robotics M10-iA robot is the core automation component of the LR-80TCR, allowing loading speeds of thermo-formed or top-sealed rigid trays at speeds of up to 200ppm.

Each new LR-80TCR Loading System comprises retail pack in-feed conveyors, a case erecting system for Regular Slotted Containers (RSC), an LR-80 robot case loader and a case closer.

Designed to comfortably operate 24/7 duty cycles, the Fanuc Robotics M10-iA has proven reliability with low maintenance being a key feature of its design.

The system has been designed with future use in mind, allowing upgradeability for plastic returnable supermarket crates or other containers.

The Fanuc robot has a small footprint in comparison to conventional mechanical case loader/packers, making the system suitable for applications where space is restricted.

With a choice of case-erecting options available and the ability to pack a range of case formats with instant or minimal change times, the system offers users a high degree of flexibility.

FANUC UK provides industrial automation solutions ranging from the supply of CNC controllers, robots, drilling machines, EDM and injection moulding machines through to the complete integration of factory automation systems.

Providing a single customer support portal for its three core businesses, FANUC comprises FA — CNC controllers, motors and drives; robotics — industrial robots and systems; robomachines — EDM, injection moulding and drilling machines.

CNC

FANUC’s FA business manufactures CNC controls, drive systems and laser systems. With a 65 per cent market share in the global CNC control sector, FANUC is the market leader. FANUC CNC is the controller of choice for the world’s leading machine tool manufacturers; continuously developing functionality sees FANUC CNC control being used in a wide range of applications — combining powerful control and high precision with unparalleled reliability.

FANUC servo drives and motors are well proven — aimed at the machine builder, they offer the widest range of high-performance compact designs.  The high availability and ease of maintenance together with world-class, energy-efficient designs make them the motors of choice for thousands of OEMs around the world.

Robotics 

FANUC’s robotics business manufactures the widest range of robots in the world for applications from micro-electronics assembly to the forging of precision aerofoils for jet engines — in industries as diverse as pharmaceutical and potato processing — and with maximum payloads from 1kg to 1,350kg. More than 280,000 FANUC robots are operating worldwide, with production currently geared to meet demands of 5,000 per month. FANUC robots are truly ‘out-of-the-box’ automation designed to be totally flexible and, with application-specific options, straightforward to integrate.

Robomachine

FANUC’s robomachine business manufactures Robodrill machining centres, Robocut EDM machines and Roboshot electric injection-moulding machines. Using FANUC components throughout, the robomachine business builds on the advanced technology, reliability, energy efficiency and innovation of its own controllers, drives and motors. With a focus on energy efficiency and high reliability, the robomachine business developed the first all-electric injection-moulding machines — Roboshot — changing the mould shop into a much cleaner and quieter environment.

Customer support

From initial sales contact with FANUC through the life of the product, FANUC provides one single contact point to make sure support is always at hand with up-to-date advice, genuine warranted parts and, whenever possible, obsolescence avoidance solutions that ensure the lifetime delivery of maximum efficiency.
