Robots designed for the food industry

12 December 2017

The MOTOMAN GP7 and GP8 food grade robots from YASKAWA are designed to meet the specific requirements of food, beverage and other ‘hygienic’ processing applications by offering a number of important features.

All moving parts use food grade grease and are finished with a white, water based paint colour for food related applications. Robot speed, acceleration and deceleration reaches the same standards as with standard grease while the drip-proof outer design and finish ensures a smooth disposal of a liquid on the robot surface.

The GP7 and GP8 options also offer optimum productivity with high payloads and speeds. They allow for a wide variety of products to be transferred with different grippers which can be mounted with 7kg and 8kg payloads providing 38% greater allowable movement. With these robots Yaskawa has increased the speed of all axes by up to 39%, while acceleration/deceleration control has been improved to achieve maximum reduction of acceleration/deceleration times for all robot postures.
