MULTI-FUNCTION TOP LOADING CASE PACKERS: SD & FLEXICASE®

TOP 3 BENEFITS:

  • Case forming, loading and sealing in a single, very compact unit
  • Speeds of up to 40 cases/minute
  • Best “speed/footprint/packaging size range” combination on the market
  • Open All ▼

  • Product Information

    Developments in 2014

    • New kinematics for the sealing operation, reducing the overall machine length by 1100mm
    • Lightweight carbon and aluminum gripping tooling (beehive structure), reducing inertia during Pick & Place movements in order to integrate more compact gripping arms and to lower energy consumption
    • Retractable loading funnel for easy access to the cases at the loading station

    Technical characteristics

    • Case packing solution designed with completely modular mechanical and control system architecture
    • Various product handling systems possible depending on the speed and the product, with the choice of sequential (stop & go) or continuous technology
    • Compact and positive vertical case forming system
    • Sealing of top flaps (using glue or adhesive tape) with case squaring guaranteed
    • Solution equipped with 16 servo-motors in total, including 6 for the forming operation and 3 for the sealing operation
    • Cantilever structure for walk-in access into the heart of the machine

    Advantages

    • Case magazine at an ergonomic level of 900mm to facilitate reloading by the operator
    • Multi-case loading (from 1 to 4 most frequently) to reduce the loading speed and consequently limit hazards during the critical phases of product gripping, transfer and loading into the packaging
    • Precise and smooth product gripping: optional integration of the Cermex AN gantry packer and ER20 Pick & Place arm, or any third party polyarticulated robot
    • Structure with completely independent subassemblies to facilitate machine operation and maintenance
    • Ergonomic Human/Machine Interface with an input menu per module

    Performance

    • Automation and control architecture developed in compliance with the OMAC standard (OMAC (Organization for Machine Automation and Control)
    • Payload: from 20kg to 160kg (products and tooling)
    • Speed: up to 40 cases per minute depending on the product characteristics
    • 2 versions available: small size range for cosmetic bottles and large size range for detergent bottles
    • Options: Remote maintenance kit, anticorrosion pack, automation of format changeovers, green packs to reduce air and power consumption

  • SD

    Top benefits

    • Case forming, loading and sealing on a single machine
    • Fully accessible machine
    • Increased mechanical performance
    • Compact and ergonomic design at each station

    Technical characteristics

    • Low case magazine positioned parallel to the product infeed, making the machine even more compact and ergonomic.
    • Separate case extraction, forming and transfer modules to improve case quality and squaring.

    Advantages

    • Cantilever design of the case transfer mechanism for direct access into the machine at floor level.
    • New generation of numerical axes for loading (support mast and case driving system) designed to reach higher speeds and guarantee smooth and controlled movements.
    • Case outfeed optimized in order to reduce the machine footprint.
    • Quick size changeovers.

    Performance

    • Innovative design incorporating sliding safety guards.
    • Payload: up to 55 kg with tooling depending on products and loading stroke.
    • Speed: up to 28.5 cases per minute depending on the type of products and collations.
    • Product and case size ranges available on request.
    • Option: product and batch control by vision system.

  • Operating

    Product packing

    • Stocking of blanks in a flat magazine with chains, advancing mechanically with stabilizing guide.
    • Extraction, positioning at the forming station and positive erection of the blank by a module made up of two arms fitted with suction cups with rotating and transfer movements (operations carried out alternately in concurrent operation time).
    • Flap deflection and guiding of the batch of products into the case by a rotating loading funnel.
    • Transfer of the batch into the case on 2 combined horizontal and vertical numerical axes.
    • Folding and holding of inner flaps.
    • Progressive folding of the longitudinal flaps during the transfer phase.

    Hot-melt version

    • Motorized transfer of the cases (held square) by mechanical shuttle with speed control for even application of glue strips.
    • Pressure applied evenly to case sides to ensure gluing and squaring of the case prior to outfeed.

    Adhesive tape version

    • Motorized transfer of the cases (held square) by mechanical shuttle.
    • Positive transfer of the case by motorized belts for sealing by applying adhesive tape, integrated into the machine frame.
