Delkor: Robotic cartoner for beverages
See it at PACK EXPO Las Vegas Booth #C-3939! Delkor’s high-speed robotic packing system, the patent-pending C1 1400 Robotic Packer, integrates forming, loading, and closing with a detection device that locates and discharges out-of-place packaging before it can jam the system.
The result of close cooperation between Delkor and Tetra Pak, the system is designed for use with Tetra Pak’s Tetra Wedge aseptic package, often used for juice, nectar, still drinks, tea, and milk drinks, as well as numerous other types of packaging. Delkor’s loader can pivot alternating containers to nest them in a carton, minimizing required carton space and maximizing pallet density.
The C1 1400 can handle a wide range of case formats, sizes, and packing patterns, as well as multiple substrates, including paperboard, microflute and corrugated materials. This allows users to produce finished secondary packaging on a single, integrated system that meets the requirements of any market channel from convenience stores to club stores.
The loader achieves high levels of productivity by utilizing the company’s detect-and-discharge system to prevent line stops due to jamming during the collation process. In addition, tool-less changeovers can be accomplished in a matter of minutes, maximizing uptime. The system also incorporates the highly-accurate and reliable Delkor Trayfecta to form the cartons.
