It joins the pick and place family alongside the PKR Gantry that is used to pack more rigid cans, bottles, jars, cartons, and similarly packaged products.
The flexibility of EndFlex’s top load case and tray packing machines to accommodate several rigid and flexible package styles can be seen in recent system integrations for clients packaging a range of products from personal care items and vitamin gummies to vegetables and snack foods.
Both robotic options were designed by the EndFlex in-house team of robotic specialists with product integrity and consistency in mind. These modular cells achieve their gentle product handling by either vacuum or mechanical means and can be customized for a wide variety of case or tray sizes and pack patterns.
“Our clients needed faster, more compact and precise modular cells to compete in their respective industries. They came to us with their wish lists and trusted us to find a solution. Our team of engineers and technicians got to work, and their efforts led to this new generation of robotic pick and place cells, said Jorge Perez, Vice President of Operations at EndFlex. “The gantry and delta robotic cells we developed allow us to offer unique new solutions to some of the old packaging challenges.”
EndFlex can customize these modular pick & place cells to fit into any existing production line or be integrated as part of a complete packaging solution to include automatic case erecting, tray forming, sealing and robotic palletizing.
