One of the conveyors in action at PACK EXPO is the 3200 Series Precision Move, a conveyor that uses a servo motor, timing belt and the latest advancements in drive technology for applications involving extremely accurate movement of product at specific times, distances and intervals.
We will be introducing our new BLE2 Brushless Motor & Driver at this year's Pack Expo International show. We have two large demos, one showcasing the benefits of our speed control and another showcasing the benefits of position control, which saves money over servo systems.
We had introduced the new TX2 at Automate which is part of the smart factory that we will have set up at PACK EXPO. If you didnt have a chance to learn about the levels of the MRC-Man Robot Collaboration, it would be a good time to stop by and allow us to show you how the TX2 will be used in the packaging market.
FANUC America will be introducing a new high-speed compact palletizer for the first time at the show. This robot is well suited for high-speed palletizing cases and bags. It will be in action at 100% speed.

MiR200 is a safe, cost-effective mobile robot that automates your internal transportation. The robot optimizes workflows, freeing staff resources so you can increase productivity and reduce costs. MiR200 safely maneuvers around people and obstacles, through doorways and in and out of lifts. You can download CAD files of the building directly to the robot, or program it with the simple, web-based interface that requires no prior programming experience. With its fast implementation, the robots offers a fast ROI, with payback in as little as a year.
