Modernization on the Chaumesnil site : New robot

New robot at Chaumesnil

Ionisos is delighted to announce the completion of the final stages of the upgrade of the robot in Chaumesnil Electron Beam facility. The installation of a new sophisticated materials handling robotic unit has been successfully completed on time with no adverse impact to our customer service levels. This new inline robot replaces the old robot ; it prepares products for irradiation processing and following processing, the robot ‘film-wraps’ the pallets in preparation for dispatch.

This robot investment completes the phased upgrade and modernization of the Chaumesnil accelerator and provides for:

  • best treatment for the clients (ensuring consistent quality and reliable processing schedules)
  • increased production capacity to cater for our customers’ growing needs
  • improved working conditions of the employees of the site

The control of all electron beam process systems, including the new robotics, has been fully integrated into the site PLC system.
