The Robotic Vertical Packer from BluePrint Automation features a small footprint and patented high-speed collation method, and it now allows virtually hands-free changeover between different product and case sizes. No manual adjustments need to be made, and the packer is ideal for handling fragile products such as bags of chips and other snacks and flexible packages. The case packer is able to pack small bags at up to 120-plus bags per minute. The unit collates product into a group using its Smart-Trak system. The product is then picked by its specially designed end-effector for auto-changeover. The fully servo-driven robot ensures smooth placement of the product into an intermediary auto-adjustable cassette. Cases are tipped towards the cassette, and the entire stack is side-loaded into the secondary container for vertical presentation. To run a different product or case size, the operator simply selects the product code from the panel, and the end-effector and cassette automatically change over to the next bag and/or case size.
