Bosch Packaging Technology: Versatile case packer
Able to be combined with Bosch Packaging Technology’s other packaging machines, the CCM 3100 case packer for vertical and horizontal bags and flow-wrapped packages provides increased flexibility in secondary packaging, and allows shorter production runs and more frequent changes in product packaging styles.
The CCM 3100 case packer handles all commonly used case styles, provides fast, tool-less changeover between vertical and horizontal packaging formats, and features open-frame design to provide complete machine access for set-up and cleaning.
The case packer is designed for easy integration with both v f/f/s and h f/f/s machines, and features a wide format range in both bag and case sizes and styles, including the Regular Slotted Container (RSC), Half Slotted Container (HSC), and other shelf-ready packaging styles.
Capable of picking and placing up to 180 products/min., the machine’s single frame is attached to an in-feed system that accepts products from v f/f/s and h f/f/s primary packaging machines. These products can be handled individually or in groups, and are picked and placed by a two-axis robot with vacuum or gripper end- effectors, depending on the product characteristics.
The CCM 3100 setup can be quickly changed using a product recipe selection change, and if necessary, by making tool-less setup changes. Its open frame enables easy access for quick changeover set-up, with moving parts and wear parts reduced to a minimum to increase production capacity. A built-in inspection station on the infeed conveyor allows quality control prior to packaging, helping ensure that bags are correctly positioned and sized for smooth case loading.
