Top and side load snack bag packer on the same machine

Video clip shows robot from Blueprint Automation that packs snack bags both top-load and side-load on the same machine up to 150 pouches/min with a fast, tool-free changeover.

Swing Machine has the ability to pack bags AND cartons in stand-up AND lay-down configurations on the SAME machine.

Horizontal configuration (applies to standard swing machine only):
Product is collated into a group using one of our custom collation methods. The product is then picked by a specially designed end-effector. The fully servo-driven robot ensures smooth placement into the secondary container.


Vertical configuration: Begins with collation and the picking of the product just as the
lay-down configuration. Instead of loading directly into the secondary container, the product is placed flat into an intermediary cassette. Cases are tipped towards the cassette and the entire stack is side-loaded into the secondary container.
