OMC robot mixing system

July 19, 2013

13-0055-r

This industrial mixing system, developed by OMC, uses a multi-axis robot from Nachi.

In contrast with conventional mixing systems that rotate the container along two axes, using this multi-axis multi-directional robot enhances the stirring effect, mixing and dispersing materials in a shorter amount of time.

The mixing capacity is dependent on which robot is used, with a maximum capacity of around 700kg.

In the future, OMC plans to expand the use of this system into areas such as food production and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
