ELCAT's robot loaders excel in swiftly and precisely placing a wide variety of food portions into pre-made or thermoformed trays.

Each loading system is meticulously tailored to accommodate the specific product, whether it's shaved mortadella, cold cuts, meat portions, croquettes, or cheese sticks.

Our tailored solutions seamlessly integrate with existing line components, such as slicers, thermoforming machines, or flow pack machines.

ELCAT loaders can be equipped with anthropomorphic, SCARA, Delta robots, or specific automation chosen by our engineering team to ensure maximum flexibility and performance.

Grippers are tailor-made by ELCAT based on the characteristics and specifications of the food portions.

Robots can orient, compact, or manipulate portions during the pick-and-place operation if needed to ensure the best possible fit inside the trays.
