Operators generally spend over 50%, and sometimes as much as 80%, of their time feeding the cardboard magazine of a case packing system with consumables. Extremely time-consuming, this task is also a recognized cause of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Consisting of a 6-axis robot, a universal gripping tooling, and a PC–based software, FlexiLoad™handles magazine loading fully automatically for any high-speed case packing system, regardless of whether it processes American cases (RSCs - Regular Slotted Containers), wrap-around blanks or trays.
Patent pending FlexiLoad™ consists of a 6-axis robot, a universal gripping tooling, and a PC–based software to fully automatically cardboard magazine. FlexiLoad™ can be installed on new equipment and also on existing installed machinery, through a retrofit.
FlexiLoad™ enables operators to devote their time to other, higher added value tasks. An industrial and social return on investment!
