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.
