Muller Technology’s case packer incorporates an industrial six-axis robot, to help meet the volume-driven demands of U.S. processors while also delivering greater versatility, flexibility, and productivity.
The six-axis case packer delivers greater productivity than Muller’s recently launched collaborative robot (cobot) case packer, according to Taras Konowal, Muller‘s Director of Sales and Marketing for North America.“The unit is one of our most productive systems for high-volume packaging lines,“ said Konowal. It offers higher cavitation for the manufacture of blow molded bottles and thermoformed packaging. The unit offers highly efficient cycle times, handling up to 64 cavities every six sec for lids and 5-sec cycles for containers.
The case packer can be purchased separately or integrated into an automation line such as Muller’s new M-Line system, a new integrated robotic and automation system which delivers significantly greater flexibility and versatility for production of injection molded packaging. The basic model of the six-axis case packer can operate as a standalone, placed at the end of an injection molding or thermoforming machine, or tied to an in-mold labeling (IML) automation system.
