Newest flowwrapping/robotic cartoning technology from Italy for confectionary applications

Video clip shows Cavanna Cartesio robotic flow wrapping and cartoning system for chocolate bars that integrates the forming, filling, and sealing of cartons in a single packaging cell whose footprint is about 16' x 6' x 6'.

The system is driven by a total of 16 servo motors. A traditionally mechanical machine would never have been able to deliver the fluidity and precise positioning accuracy that this robotic concept requires.

Fed by a 600 piece/min flow wrapper that puts the chocolate bars in their primary package, each articulated robotic arm uses three servo motors. The other seven servos are responsible for tightly synchronizing an infeed belt, an oscillator device, a dual-belt racetrack collator, and a flighted carton infeed conveyor.
