OMRON’s iX3 and iX4 parallel robots have been designed with high payload and high speed for fast and flexible picking and packaging applications.

The iX3-565 offers a payload of 8 kg, and is suitable for high-speed applications in the packaging, food and beverage, manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries.

It supports integrated high-speed conveyor tracking, vision guidance and easy-to-use application software created specifically for packaging applications. It can be used for multi-picking and for fast pick-and-place. With a hygienic design that minimises contamination risks, including a standard IP65-rated work area and corrosion-resistant materials for easy washdown, it is suitable for use in both primary and secondary food and beverage packaging.

The iX3 can track up to a conveyor speed of 1.4 m/s and has an extended vertical reach that allows for a 3.9 m workspace, enabling a wide variety of packages to be used. It also offers EtherCAT connectivity to the OMRON NJ501-R controller and programming through the familiar IEC 61131-3 programming language or scripting.

The iX4 is a four-axis parallel robot with a payload capacity of 15 kg. It is said to be the company’s fastest parallel robot yet, and the only parallel robot in the world with a four-arm rotational platform. The four arms help evenly distribute the load on the robot and support multi-picking.

The iX4 robot meets the sanitary standards of the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration for prevention of product contamination, allowing it to be accepted for meat and poultry processing.
