Case & Tray Packer

CpONE Case Packer & Tray Packer

This Simplifies Everything.

To develop the patent-pending CpONE™ Intermittent Motion Case Packer, we leaned on new technology and over fifty years of product and material control experience. The result is next-level simplicity.

The CpONE leverages the development of more advanced mechanisms and engineered motion control. It smartly applies these advancements to improve machine usability and uptime. A key enabler developed and deployed into the heart of the machine is the robotic arms. Highly engineered to suit the machine’s speeds and payloads, these arms are used within the case setup, loading and sealing sections of the machine.

The CpONE represents a step-change in simplicity and usability while maintaining reliability and proven performance. Simple operation. Simple maintenance. Simply next-level performance.

The resulting main machine configurations offer:
40% fewer parts
30-50% fewer lubrication points
45% fewer change points

Changeover features simplify and reduce changeover time
  • 45% reduction in changeover points
  • Magazine bed and compression section height adjustments eliminated by robot’s and mechanisms ability to adjust through recipe settings
  • Standard automatic adjustment of flap trap location, load funnel width, manufacturer’s glue nozzle height and centerline height of minor flap guides and major flap glue nozzles; additional automatic changeover points available as options
  • Accessibility and ease of making manual adjustments
Performance as a foundation
  • Forming die case setup for wraparound cases is more tolerant of variations in corrugated materials
  • Pivoting major flap folding and compression with 8-corner case squaring for a quality finished product
  • Heightened visibility and ergonomic accessibility
  • Scalable drive platforms using servo motors and servo-pneumatics, or all servo motors
Maintenance made simple
  • Robot arms greatly reduce the number of bearings, linear bearings, belts, pulleys, tensioners, cable tracks, grease points and framework resulting in 40% fewer parts to maintain
  • Rockwell motors, drives, HMI and ControlLogix controller (no additional controllers)
  • Electronic ‘hand wheel’ jog function provides incremental jogging to setup or diagnose timing and material changes
  • Three-year limited warranty coverage of major machine components
  • Sanitary design
  • Added convenience features such as pivoting glue gun mounts provide easy access for maintaining glue nozzles

A variety of advanced infeed solutions are offered to optimize performance for specific product types while maintaining gentle product handling to ensure highest package integrity. Some commonly used systems include:

Servo Lane Mergers and Dividers – Perfect for applications where any shape or sized product cannot be flood or mass fed. A fixed number of products are smoothly fed to metering systems, where balanced product lanes are required.

Recirculating Conveyor – A complete recirculating loop system that controls product population and reduces line pressure as products are distributed into lanes.

Fast, repeatable changeover feature offers multiple enhancements.

Changeover time – significantly reduces time to less than 5 minutes (time of changeover is dependent on extent of changeover)

Repeatability – rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to within +/- 1/32″

Flexibility – ability to place lanes where desired as opposed to centerline or fixed side adjustments and more customer options for generating product-specific recipes

Durability – infeed rail’s holding force can withstand high product pressure

Ergonomics – minimizing manual adjustments maximizes efficiency and promotes safety in the work environment

SmartSelect Automatic Changeover

Velocity® II High Speed Stacker – Gently forms stacked product patterns without interruption, providing continuous product flow at speeds up to 600 products per minute. Patented techniques include an increased flexibility for running different product heights while still providing tool-less changeovers with an intuitive HMI control panel.

Pick and Place – Ideal for products such as tapered cups that cannot be pushed one against the other. A variety of vacuum or mechanical techniques are used, depending on the application.

Raise on Return Loading – This high speed loading technique starts to accumulate product for the next pack pattern as soon as the loader clears the accumulation section.
