The machine’s compact footprint is able to load multiple bars per pick into cartons of single or multiple layers. The robot cell incorporates an articulating end-of-arm tool designed to gently yet accurately control the bars during loading. Cartons are accurately indexed into the cell and positioned for loading via servo-driven side belts. The walk-in frame design features full-length doors, which provide easy access for housekeeping between production runs.
Sanitary design is considered throughout, featuring a robust frame of stainless steel and use of FDA approved materials on all food-contact surfaces. Fast and easy product changeover for a wide range of carton sizes and bar lengths is completely tool-less and can be performed in under five minutes using no change parts.
