Product is collated into a group using a customized two axis gantry style robot. Once collated, product is side loaded into the erected wrap around case. Hot melt is applied and flaps are securely closed.
CPIII Wrap Around Options:
Automatic size change facility, IP65 wash down, Open case detection with reject, Additional size change parts, Control panel mounted on swivel arm, Second operating position and Coding of cases.
During flat (horizontal) packing, a flat-pack-cassette is simply lowered in front of the loading mandrel. Once positioned, a pre-stacked caseload can be gently top loaded.
How the "VP-F III with ICE" works
A stack of case blanks are loaded into the system on a case in feed conveyor. After loading the predetermined number of cases, conveyor moves stack to its pick position making room for operator to load another stack. Prior to picking first blank, the top four cases are squared using two cylinders. Once squared, the robot picks the top blank and positions above the place position (tipper). The robotic arms then opens the case using suction cups . Once blank is opened case is moved towards the tipper and both minor flaps are folded. Tipper takes case to load position and robot goes back to pick position for next cycle. Once case is fully loaded, the case is tipped back 90 degrees and major flaps are folded during transfer to discharge conveyor.
