Multi award winning* packing equipment designer and manufacturer Pacepacker Services, will launch its Blu-Robot Pick & Place range of second user automation solutions at Total** stand J22. The reconditioned solutions, which are ideal for seasonal packers or low volume product producers, are typically halve the cost of a new system and can be used to handle primary and secondary packaging including punnets, netted produce, cartons, retailer trays and sacks.

The new range, an extension of Pacepacker’s Blu-Robot Palletisers, incorporate a second user high quality FANUC robotic arm, typically originating from the automotive industry, which is approximately 35% of the way through its expected 100,000 operational hour lifespan, helping producers automate arduous processes cost effectively and with a fast ROI. Pacepacker reprogram’s, services, paints and fits the appropriate end effector to the system ready for its new occupation before installing the system with a service contract, spares and a one year warranty. “I’d defy anyone to identify that we’ve installed a pre-owned robot; it came delivered as new,” said Blu-Robot customer and potato packer Preva Produce Managing Director Ian Anderson.

The range, which are ideally suited to food producers handling fresh produce, snacks, ready meals and meat trays for example, was recently unveiled by their local Braintree MP, Brooks Newmark who cited, “Pacepacker is a great example of British innovation and technological excellence.”

Also on show will be Pacepacker’s flagship bulk bagging system the TBC Total Bag Control, and as a FANUC Strategic Partner, the latest FANUC palletising robots will be on display.
