At interpack 2008, Wächter displayed its 25 cpm ELAU-equipped Cartojet C IV tray and wraparound case erector and packer.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Case packing

Using a delta robot and ELAU's robotic software library, the all-servo machine performs case erection, loading and filling on a single level.

It is designed for use with trays, display trays, lidded trays and wraparound cases up to 400mm x 600mm (16" x 14"). Custom sizes are offered, as is an optional size-change unit.

The compact, self-contained system can handle a wide range of primary packages, including cartons, trays, bags, bottle, jars and cans.

Wächter's delta robot arm offers a pick & place solution beyond the Cartojet application. The highly dynamic, precise robot can be easily integrated into existing production lines for picking, pushing and collating a variety of products at speeds up to 60 cpm.

Its compact and modular construction can be synchronized with additional servo-driven systems, such conveyor belts, infeeds and sortation systems.
