JLS Automation is helping meat and poultry producers meet strict sanitary requirements with its next generation of hygienic robotic packaging system, which will be on display at the International Production and Processing Expo, Jan. 30 - Feb.1 at booths B-6161 and B-5845.

Both the Talon robotic pick and place system and Osprey robotic case packers are designed with the highest level of sanitation for food packaging and feature four levels of sanitary construction. Additional sanitary features include pick belts with a motorized roller, conveyor stand-offs that help prevent product build-up, a tool-less belt lifting mechanism and non-existent welds for easy, washdown cleaning. An all stainless steel construction, sloped surfaces and control box for run-off as well as a standard open frame design allow for easy cleaning, access, inspection and maintenance.

The Osprey offers a high payload capacity robot while the Talon features an IP69K rated stainless steel robot. Both systems offer precise product placement and orientation for fast, efficient packaging.

“We know the importance of hygiene when it comes to meat and poultry packaging, and JLS is proud to reinforce its commitment to food safety with this next generation of systems for our customers,” said Craig A. Souser, JLS President and CEO. “Not only does this system meet various sanitation needs, but it also offers the latest software, motion and HMI features into a single platform—all while fitting into the smallest electrical footprint the industry has seen.”

Visit JLS booth B-6161 at IPPE, Jan. 30 - Feb. 1, 2018 to see live demonstrations of the Osprey robotic case packer loading MAP trays into cases. At Reiser booth B-5845 you can see the Talon robotic pick and place system in action utilizing soft robotic grippers loading chicken into a thermoformer.
