When packaging robots do their product loading from the top, they save valuable floor space. They also have a prime vantage point to complete the packaging. Top loading packaging robots use conveyor tracking and vision technology to provide reliable packaging processes.
ABB offers end-of-line packing systems that promote flexibility in top-loading processes. Their machines are ideal for pharmaceutical packaging, and feature integrated robots with a simple operator interface. ABB’s IRB 260 model is a top loader designed primarily for packing applications. It fits into compact packing machines, but can still meet reach and payload requirements. It has fast cycle times and best-in-class accuracy. It is durable and versatile.
Brenton developed the new BantamPro ELS top load case packer with availability for contract packers, and specialty product makers. It is capable of performing multiple packaging operations, like case erecting, case loading, and case sealing. Depending on desired cycle rates and payload capacities, interchangeable robot modules are available.
Bosch offers the Presto Dual Collating Top Loader for a wide range of robotic packaging applications. It places products into cartons, cases, boxes, or trays, with a flat or on-edge orientation.
