Gray & Company: Case loading for candy producerTwo cases are indexed into position and are pneumatically tilted away from the robot to facilitate loading. After the cases are half filled by the Wexxar machine, with 16-oz cartons, a corrugated divider is inserted before additional rows are loaded to complete the cases. The robot picks and places these cartons at a rate of 60/min.
At the SMB packing station, two cases are indexed into position on the infeed and are pneumatically tilted 20¼ away from the robot before loading. This allows the cartons to slide to the far side of the case as they are loaded. After rows of cartons are picked from the infeed and placed into the cases to half fill them, a corrugated divider is inserted before the rest of the rows are loaded to fill the cases.
