Christian Book Distributors: Packaging books for e-commerce orders

This clip shows operators placing stacks of books and CDs in infeed trays.

At the same time, two different sizes of corrugated corrugated blanks are plucked from magazines and placed on a conveyor parallel to the books. A laser measures the height, width and length of each order. Next, a servo-driven pushing arm (servo technology from Bosch Rexroth) pushes each order precisely onto the corrugated, based on the measurements in the preceding step. The machine from Delta Systems works at a cycle speed of 30 packages/min.
