The ESS Model V30 vertical robotic case packer has an enhanced design that includes a larger-capacity case magazine that separates from the machine frame to simplify skidding of the finished machine for shipment and allows the case packer to fit through smaller doors than case packer versions with fixed case magazines.
Custom robot end effectors to load almost any product, including bottles, cartons, pouches, sachets, and bundles, are available. Quick-release features on the end effector and case packer make size changeovers virtually tool-free and fast (15 min or less). Standard 3M Accuglide 3 high-performance tape heads ensure consistent case sealing. A glue closure system may also be specified. The V30 includes an Allen Bradley PanelView Plus 12-in. color touchscreen HMI for simple operation.
State-of-the art technology includes the latest designs for servos, actuators, pneumatics, and other machine components. The UL-certified electrical panel has additional overhead space to allow for future expansion. Unchanged by the standardization of the case packer design are the V30’s compact footprint and high reliability.
The machine is designed to facilitate IQ/OQ/PQ validation requirements. An option to integrate the case packer with OEM serialization systems is available. Components, such as inspection cameras, coders, and labelers, are integrated into the case packing process with automatic reject for products, cases, or labels outside the parameters of the serialization system.
