Pack Expo - Shuttleworth’s Booth at Pack Expo 2015 Is a One-Stop-Shop for State-of-the-Art Conveying Solutions

Shuttleworth engineered two comprehensive, modular active demonstrations that showcase a wide range of conveying solutions for every shape, size, and composition of products from cartons and cases to delicate baked goods (Shuttleworth Pack Expo Booth C-3623)

Huntington, Ind. September 18, 2015

Shuttleworth, powered by Pro Mach, features at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2015, September 28-30, two conveying demonstrations that will save a great deal of time for show attendees looking for state-of-the-art solutions for their product handling needs. These two exhibits incorporate an extensive range of automated product handling solutions - from delicate foods to virtually any type of package goods and packaging.

The Shuttleworth servo loop demonstration incorporates fully automated in-feeding, vision-based rejection, combining, and dividing of products. Rejected products are routed out from the conveyor, looped around, and then automatically and seamlessly incorporated back into the flow via a fully integrated Modu conveyor. Shuttleworth will also display on the servo loop conveyor the new ProTech by Pro Mach™ remote monitoring and remote service technology being introduced at Pack Expo 2015.

For delicate products, such as baked goods conveying, Shuttleworth engineered the bakery loop. This loop integrates a stainless V-Clean Slip-Torque conveyor with a KLEENLine lane switch module. The lane switch is a stainless steel sanitary washdown construction plaque divider that diverts products from a single lane into two, three, or four lanes for routing to wrappers, case packers, cartoners, and palletizers. Designed and built at KLEENLine, a Pro Mach business, the lane switch integrates flawlessly with Shuttleworth's stainless V-Clean Slip-Torque conveyor. This combo features gentle product transfers and no side contact, diverting at speeds ranging from 220 feet per minute (FPM) to 400 FPM.

In this loop demonstration a single lane of products is automatically separated into multiple lanes, then accumulated, and lastly formed back into a single lane before being separated again. The conveyor showcases a small footprint modular design. It also features a wide range of different rollers and roller surfaces - food grade, star roller for loose leaf paper, high heat urethane rollers, and more options that reveal the range of surfaces and applications available from Shuttleworth.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
