Cotton and Other Industries - Case packing solutions
Tray packer / case packer with vertical filling (top-loading) system, available in versions 600 and 800.
The machine picks up a pre-glued carton blank for an "American-type" slotted case from the case magazine, erects the case (with positive flap folding), fills it (according to the chosen collation) and closes the case with adhesive tape or hot-melt glue.
The products (boxes / bags of cotton swabs, cotton wool, etc.) coming from the upstream wrapper / cartoning machine are automatically oriented, counted, collated and inserted into the case by means of a pick&place system; in the meanwhile, the case erector erects the case and transfers it to the filling station. The case is then closed with adhesive tape or hot-melt glue.
The tray / case packer features a 1-metre capacity magazine that allows high autonomy; the case magazine can be topped up/loaded without having to halt the production cycle.
Production speed up to 15 cases per minute.
If the machine has to manage different cases, "size change parts" (parts to be replaced in the machine filling unit) are supplied;
Changeover operations are quick (max. 10/15 min.) and simple.
This model can be customised with the addition of modules, including:
The first order placed by the Neapolitan company was for a side-loading case packer that was fitted to an interfolded towel and toilet paper line. The second was for a dedicated high-performance line for hospital paper rolls production, while the third order was fitted downstream of a state-of-the-art interfolded towel and toilet paper line.
Line layout design should be aimed at efficient product conveyance and, at the same time, optimum production flow, thus saving as much space as possible. The Microline engineering department is ready to help the customer design new layouts or alter existing ones
One of the strong points of a Microline machine is its versatility. Indeed, a common feature of the entire range of solutions is that of being able to work, depending on the configuration, with different materials, products and sizes, thus satisfying constantly-changing production requirements.
