Products: 

Horizontal & Vertical Case Packer (Model: Swing Machine)

Versatile robotic cell packs bags and other packages laying down (horizontal) AND standing up (vertical) into cases, crates and other secondary containers; Ideal for bags, pouches, cartons and other flexible and rigid packages.

Robotic Pick & Place Case Packer (Model: Robotic Top Loader)

Horizontal case packer packs a variety of packaged products directly into cases, trays, crates, and other secondary containers; ideal for bags, pouches, flow-wraps, thermo-formed containers and a variety of rigid containers such as cartons.

DELTA Vertical Case Packer

BPA has engineered a case packer with auto-changeover using our BPA three and four-axis Delta robot.Ideal for packing fragile products such as bags of chips, snacks and other flexible packages this system is capable of packing complex pack patterns and/or high speed picking! Our new design simplifies the system mechanically, providing plants with a much smaller footprint; only 4′ wide x 8′ high, and includes a virtually hands-free changeover between different product and case sizes

Vision Guided Robotics

BPA specializes in Vision Guided Robotics (Primary Packaging). We handle naked products directly from the processing area.The product (Just produced, sterilized, deep frozen out of the freezer or from storage) can be unscrambled and brought in-line. If necessary we can unscramble and get the product into pitch. The vision system recognizes the product and defines the exact position and orientation and sends it to the Delta Robot. The gripper of the Delta Robot picks and places or stacks and places the product into a thermoformed tray, carton or a flowwrapper chain.

Rotary Gate Packer with Integrated Case Erector

The Rotary Gate Packer with Integrated Case Erector (ICE) erects a variety of case sizes AND horizontally packs a wide variety of products into the case; ideal for bags of fresh or frozen chicken, beef, vegetables and other flexible packages!
