Using the JLS Osprey robotic case packer as a base, special modifications and tooling were added to develop the innovative Osprey CL automatic chub loader. The system features single or dual ABB IRB 360 FlexPicker robots. The entire system comes in a small footprint, saving processors valuable floor space. Speeds range from 125 chubs/min (single-head robot) up to 200 chubs/min (dual-head robot) depending on chub size, weight and pack pattern.
The CL, like traditional Ospreys, utilizes the full capabilities of the ABB robot(s) to remove complexities found in other pick and place, gantry and wrap-around case packers. Some of the features that make the CL a chub loading game changer include:
The CL handles chub packs ranging from 2” to 4.5” diameter, 4” to 24” in length and weighs from 8 oz. up to 10 lbs. Chub products handled include ground beef, turkey, chicken, pork or sausage, pet food, cookie dough, sauerkraut, chili, liver sausage, polenta, meatloaf and more.
