Food packaging with the Fanuc M-430iA series

Apr 15, 2014

The Fanuc M-430iA robot helps tackle the food packaging industry tasks. The M-430iA produces products at a faster rate, helping to decrease food spoilage and save companies money. Furthermore, industrial robots in the food packaging industry improve the precision of food packaging, ensuring the safety for the customers.


The food indus­try has begun to rely heav­i­ly on indus­tri­al automa­tion in the last few years. Robot­ic pack­ag­ing sys­tems, like those found in the Fanuc M‑430iA series, allow for food to be pack­aged at a faster rate, which cuts down on food spoilage and saves com­pa­nies mon­ey on wast­ed food. These robots also improve the accu­ra­cy of food pack­ag­ing, which helps to ensure the safe­ty of consumers.

One issue when work­ing with food in an indus­tri­al set­ting is that it needs to be pack­aged and on its way to the con­sumer as fast as pos­si­ble. If the food sits too long, it could become con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed or spoiled, and it would have to be thrown away. With the use of Fanuc M430iA series robots, this is no longer a large prob­lem for the food indus­try companies.

The M 430iA series has a coat­ing that allows it to work with food, includ­ing pri­ma­ry food han­dling. It can with­stand the harsh chem­i­cal spray down that is nec­es­sary to wash robots that han­dle food all day, espe­cial­ly when the line may change prod­ucts, which is some­thing that hap­pens often in the food indus­try. This keeps cus­tomers safe from ingest­ing con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed food. But, the M‑430iA has anoth­er way to keep con­sumers safe. It cuts down on work­er error by ensur­ing that the right food gets into the right pack­ages, through vision sys­tems and touch sen­sors. This cuts down on con­sumers get­ting the wrong prod­uct, which could be a tragedy for some­one with a severe allergy.

There are three pay­load vari­a­tions in the M430iA series – the M‑430iA/​2FH, the M‑430iA/​4FH and the M‑430iA/​2PH. These robots can han­dle from 2 – 4kg pay­loads, and are also flex­i­ble enough to han­dle oth­er appli­ca­tions like part trans­fer and assem­bly. This flex­i­bil­i­ty, along with the speed and accu­ra­cy, saves the man­u­fac­tur­er mon­ey on equip­ment, labor and waste.
