An international healthcare company needed a custom solution to package many different sized bundles with several pack patterns into six different sized cases. They wanted to accomplish all of this on one casepacker. If we could provide the solution, they would replace all of the casepackers in their facility.
The P200 Balcony Casepacker was the ideal machine for this project. It offers unmatched versatility, easy maintenance, rapid repeatable changeovers and robust construction. No other company in the industry could truly run cases and trays on one casepacker.
Individual cartons arrive on the infeed conveyor with the wide edge leading. A case is erected and presented for loading. The cartons are stacked and grouped using a progressive stacking system and transferred into the load area. A case is pulled from the magazine and erected in the load station. The cartons are gently loaded into the case. The case flaps are folded and sealed using pressure sensitive tape and discharged from the machine. The cases are then labeled using a print and apply system. The labels are inspected with a vision system and the cases are checked for weight. All good cases are then conveyed to a hand palletizing station.
Bundles are fed to a single lane side push collator. They are grouped and the odd product is rotated and positioned for loading. A tray is pulled from the magazine and placed into the load area. The bundles are gently loaded into the trays and the flaps are folded and sealed using hot glue. The full trays are discharged from the machine. The trays are checked for weight. All good trays are then conveyed to a hand palletizing station.
