Nuspark's ultra-compact 50-100 ppm delta robot case packer

Nuspark Engineering introduced its compact NTL-50 delta robotic top-loading case packing system at PACK EXPO prior to exhibiting at interpack. One of a small number of globally minded North American OEMs exhibiting at the fair, Nuspark has embraced the same ELAU technology that dominates the European packaging machinery industry

Using ELAU's robotic solution that integrates robot control as a software object in the main machine control program running on the same controller as the rest of the machine, Nuspark achieves up to 50 picks per minute with payloads up to 40 kg.

By hanging a second delta robot arm in the same machine frame, the case packer handles an amazing 100 ppm in the same footprint and same electrical cabinet size. The latter is possible because they are using ELAU's Intelligent Servo Modules instead of conventional servos, which would otherwise require wiring and space for an additional 2 or 3 servo drives inside the cabinet.

As Nuspark's president Michael Elent explains, the robotic solution makes for a very flexible, high speed solution in minimum footprint. It's easy to change case size and product. The robot can handle virtually any carton, jug, bottle, rigid container or flexible package. Maximum product pattern envelope is 24” L x 16” W. Maximum case size is 24” L x 16” W x 16” D.
