Whether film-wrapped packs of four, six, or eight containers are to be packed on trays of 24, or if several different formats are to be wrapped in film, or if products from a number of packaging lines are to be fed to a single palletizing center, the packs are always received by a distribution system. What happens, however, when the discharge situation on the first machine doesn’t coincide with the infeed of the second, as is often the case in practice?
the Innopal RC robot combiner from KHS brings order to the conveying segment efficiently and fully automatically. From its position above the conveyor segments the combiner directly accesses all of the discharging packs with its parallel grippers, pushing them individually or in groups into the number of designated lanes on the infeed system at the correct distance to one another. This is sophisticated engineering.
the Innopal RC ensures smooth running production even at high capacities.
Its gentle mode of operation saves packaging materials and energy.
Extremely simple to operate.
Even for future applications great flexibility is assured by fully automatic product changeovers.
