Kliklok launches new ROBOT loader at PPMA Show

Kliklok International will be demonstrating their new Collating Robotic Loader (CRL) and
Race Track system at the forthcoming PPMA exhibition.
A brand new innovation from Kliklok, the CRL is a flexible machine ideally suited to handle the
output from low to high speed wrappers and collate wrapped products into cartons or trays at up to
600 products per minute, with a maximum load of 3kg. The CRL incorporates advanced design
electronic motion control technology using a combination of variable frequency control, servo
motor drives and a robotic Flex Picker.


3 versions of the CRL are available depending on speed and tracking distance requirements, with
optional modules such as a Carton Management System which allows cartons to be either indexed
into place or to be continuously moving while being loaded.
Multiple CRL units can be positioned along a cartoner’s infeed conveyor to enable product from
additional sources to be combined, enabling the full speed capacity of the cartoner to be utilised.
Built-in ‘plug-and-play’ style communication between the CRL units creates easy production line
expansion with the addition of further units.
User-friendly innovative recipe-driven menus are accessed from Kliklok’s Insight® colour touch
screen to ensure fast change over between product styles, sizes and collations. This also offers
superior troubleshooting capability, advanced servo diagnostics and a complete digital manual.

Alongside the CRL unit will be Kliklok’s popular ECT500 carton/tray former. The ECT
delivers exceptional efficiencies with an innovative indexing turret concept for remarkable carton
control and some of the highest forming speeds available. This four-turret rotary design provides
for short, controlled movements and smooth mechanical action at high speeds.
The machine is also capable of handling an impressive array of carton tray designs, formed from a
single flat blank, from typical four-corner styles to complex hexagonal, octagonal and other multisided packages. ECT equipment can be designed to operate independently, or can be easily
modified to operate in conjunction with other packaging line components, in a totally integrated
packaging system.
