PRODEC has completed a project for one of the most important multinational companies leader in the food market. PRODEC has designed the first top case packer for jars. It is a top case packer type DELTA, model D-104, designed for the casepacking of rigid or semi-rigid stackable containers.
The casepacking of jars is made by a head of grippers, including a format change-over to adaptable suction cups to multiple formats.
· Made of Stainless steel.
· Capable of fill in two cases at the same time.
· Package distributor at the infeed to divide the production flow.
· Speed: 100 ppm.
The head is composed by a system of grippers pneumatically driven, allowing to pick the product safely and move it from the grouping platform to the case, being gentle placed into it.
Pick & place
Infeed system composed of two axes, horizontal and vertical, driven by 2 servomotors and that through a single timing belt, they move the vertical shaft (Y) (vertical) with movement in its shaft X (horizontal) in order to pick the product up from the grouping platform and its subsequent movement inside the case. The movements of the layers corresponding to the Y shaft can be set in parameters and are memorised by the PLC.
The equipment described above has the particularity to work with only one transmission timing belt, by means of the programming of the numeric control for the servo motors. This is how the required speeds can be reached, with soft movements, and with the acceleration and deceleration peaks which are needed according to the features of the product and collation.
