The new TriVex SL case packing system debuting at Pack Expo offers a revolutionary simpler way to robotically load pouches into cases without the use of vacuum cups or any pick-and-place operation.
The TriVex SL system combines the functions collation and loading into a single, integrated operation using a pair of SCARA robots. The controls programming is also simpler: Run by Rockwell Automation ControlLogix, it does away with dedicated robotic programming. The robots’ end effectors are the loading box. It is optimized for pouches, bags and cartons in a standup configuration. Douglas Machine’s Steve Lipps, vp sales and marketing, says the system can output 25 retail-ready display cases/min.
