Robotic packaging line manufacturer, TekPak, has recently launched an innovative pick and place case packer which is described as a flexible high speed system for vertical case packing quad bags, pouches and doy packs.

The all stainless steel robot, which uses a Elau/Schneider control system, represents the latest development from the company and has widespread applications, particularly for manufacturers of snack packs and bags, confectionery and coffee.

Key features of the system include a unique product transfer system that collates the products beneath the gripper, so that the pick and place can handle a complete case formation, i.e. groups of 10 products at a time, increasing throughput on the line. The gripper head and unique case opening system has been specially designed for vertical case packing in to display cases and other shelf ready formats.

The robot can pack bags straight from the bagger to maintain a continuous packing process.

Tekpak’s Business Development Director, Imelda Kehoe says: “Automating the off-line/WIP (work in progress) operation is a major benefit for our customers because it reduces product lead time and can have a big impact on line efficiency.”
