Integrated robots pack pouches into cases at high speeds
With flexible packages continuing to penetrate into new product categories, efficient secondary packaging systems need to keep up—figuratively and literally.
The new HSP-400 robotic case packer from Delkor Systems rocks at 60 cases per minute, giving it the capacity to keep up with many of today’s high-speed stand-up pouch fillers.
One way the HSP-400 is able to reach these speeds is by integrating two vision-based delta robots to first orient and then pack pouches that are delivered layed down, even if they are skewed. By collating product as it is packed, the system removes the step and potential jamming operation of conventional collation.
Pouches can be packed into a variety of shelf-ready cases, including the popular Cabrio Case, which has seen exponential growth in 2014.
