Steck's new DR2 Delta Robot, the first roll-up delta robot to be installed in full-time production in the sandwich industry. It has been designed for today's food production environment. The concept is based upon a working area of 600mm (the average working space for production staff to work on food assembly production lines). Like all Steck's machines, it is based on a hygienic, compact, robust design with superior vision system capabilities. It is fully-mobile, height-adjustable and mounted on a virtual tripod frame on castors.
"SIMPLY THE NEXT BEST THING FOR SLICED BREAD!"
The complete design and build of the mechanical system — which has a stainless steel 304 Framework and carbon fibre arms — has been designed and manufactured entirely by Steck. This means we can continue providing high quality customer support in today's demanding food production environment.
The DR2 operates with Trio Motion for the motion processing control system and a 7" touch screen HMI. This enables us to provide the most advanced robotic control system with full UK support and a wealth of experience and knowledge from one of the industry's leading motion specialists.
The unique 'RuggedEye©' CANBUS Vision System is manufactured and calibrated enitrely by Steck. Each vision system sits in its own robust casing. The casing itself has two functions: first, to ensure the camera is protected in the most extreme circumstances; and second, to mount the vision system onto its own frame. The 'RuggedEye©' CANBUS Vision System will be calibrated to work in conjunction with the camera frame with any given environment and on any visible product.
In factories where the DR2 has been installed for food production it has successfully tackled two long standing challenges identified by our customers; around placing a precise application of starch and replacing labour-intensive tasks.
