EconocorpEconocorpAmong the many cartoning systems highlighted at PACK EXPO Las Vegas was one from Econocorp that had an integrated pick-and-place feature. The magazine-fed cartoner erects a carton from a magazine of flat blanks and brings it by way of a flighted belt conveyor from Dorner to the loading station. In this case it was a plastic bottle being cartoned. When a bottle hits a sensor, a signal is sent to a Linmot linear actuator to pick the bottle with a vacuum pickup and stroke over to place the bottle into the open carton at speeds to 40/min.

“This brings us into a new age of understanding that customers want more from us,” says Econocorp director of operations Samuel Goldberg.
