Pick-and-Place Robots Designed For Agility


In today's business environment, there is increasing pressure to produce "more with less" and simultaneously meet the ever-changing demands of your customers.

Recognizing these challenges, in 2002 JLS Automation invested all of the experience gained since opening our doors in 1955 by implementing Advanced Motion Control technologies to develop the Talon® Series Primary Loading System.

Systems using pick-and-place robots were developed with today's rigorous operational demands in mind. Since the Talon was designed to integrate with other packaging equipment, JLS can easily upgrade your packing lines, utilizing your existing equipment and maximizing your investment with the help of hygienic pick-and-place robotic solutions.

Sanitary, Vacuum on Board Technology

JLS developed our Vacuum On Board (VOB) technology to facilitate the use of high-speed vacuum generators in primary food packing equipment and applications. Finding commercial sources with inappropriate performance and material characteristics, we developed our own single stage venturis. VOB has no moving parts and is virtually clog-free by nature.

The technology integrates well into most end-of-arm tools that JLS builds for primary and secondary food packing equipment applications. Vacuum turn on/off time is greatly reduced and problematic vacuum hosing and tubing are eliminated. Sanitation is simple, as is tool changeover, and there are no clogged airlines to contend with or clean.

Our VOB 2.0 was developed in conjunction with Penn State University, allowing us to facilitate new design parameters via a computer model versus trial and error in previous design iterations. More importantly, our air consumption has been dramatically lowered with more than a 50% reduction in actual field installations.
