7. Robo casing

X-Pak has been building robot-based case erectors for a few years. I was always impressed on how it simplified case erecting and allowed erection of multiple case sizes at random. It has gone a step further by switching to a collaborative robot from Universal. This simplifies the system and reduces the required floor space—while maintaining most of the capabilities. Add a second robot for loading, a case taper and the palletizer from its partner ONExia and, voila! You have a complete, fully automatic packaging cell taking up very little space. More importantly, almost no changeover downtime.
