Tray Loading Test Tubes


As part of an automated test kit assembly system, a FANUC LR Mate 200iB robot unloads pucks containing test kits. The robot also loads the test kits into trays for further packaging. The robot increased the production rate of the test kit assembly to 40 test kits per minute. The dexterity of the LR Mate allows it to handle fragile products and to gently push the tubes completely into the tray.
