JLS Automation

Founded in 1955, JLS offers extensive application knowledge and experience when it comes to food packaging machinery. That history and experience has led to our Design for Agility® philosophy, which focuses on offering simple, user-friendly solutions to complex packaging challenges.

Our Osprey® Robotic Case Packers and Talon Picking Systems eliminate manual product handling functions, including many elements of product and/or package inspection.

Benefits of the JLS Automation Osprey and Talon Systems:
• Flexible Design with Small Footprint can easily integrate into existing lines
• Rapid Changeover with few adjustments and no “tweaking”
• USDA-Approved design for sanitary, wash-down environments
• High reliability provided by ABB IRB 360 FlexPicker
• Patented and Proprietary End-Of-Arm Tooling designed to handle:
>> Meat, poultry and dairy products
>> Frozen and prepared foods
>> Bakery products, tortillas, flat bread, snack cakes

Our PIVT™ (Package Integrity Validation Technologies) System is a collection of technologies that utilizes vacuum, vision and other sensor technologies to detect seal contamination, leaks and pinholes that lead to the loss of package integrity. PIVT™ can detect leaks at high speeds and is ideal for packages that contain a brine or juice such as hot dogs, sliced luncheon meats, and sausages. This enabling technology allows a robot to identify a leaky package, at line speeds of up to 160 packages/min, and reject it. “PIVT™ is a game changer,” states Craig Souser, President/CEO. “High-speed leak detection has typically been a challenge on an automated case packing system. With the first installation of PIVT™ on an Osprey case packer, our customer has already gained a 30 percent increase in productivity with a 67 percent reduction in packaging line labor.”

Training is typically customized for the specific application/system deployed – available for maintenance and operators.
