Depending on the configuration inside the tray/carton and on the type of product, the loading system and transfer in the machine can be equipped with different grouping/stacking systems.
Depending on how the product comes from the previous line, there could be the need to equip the machine with a: rollover system, rotating system, and/or stacking system.
Once the requested multipack configuration is created, thanks to the aid of pushers and translating trolleys, they will be shifted upon the unfolded tray/carton coming from the cartons storage unit.
From the tray/cartons storage unit, through the use of adjustable plungers, the tray/carton is unfolded and accompanied downwards.
Thanks to the transport chain and through sliding, the carton proceeds along the closing unit where the flaps are closed and glued with hot melt.
In the box motion version of the DRON machine, the tray is loaded from underneath and it is wrapped around the product/multipack coming from the previous line without start and stop.
At the final stage, the exiting box will slide out on idle rolls, whom will facilitate the exiting.
An optional box lengths detecting system via photocell, when installed, will enable the discharge of the faulty trays in favor of the correct trays that, following the programming, will be transferred manually or automatically on a pallet.
The palletizing unit is not included in the offer but it is part of the wide-range of the machines that Plan IT proposes.
Extracting or implementing specific parts and components of the machine, we can adapt the same way of packing to various formats.
CE regulation certified machine.
