Our customer, a global market leader in the tobacco industry, needed a secondary packaging solution to meet an increasingly high demand for its products worldwide.
Supporting varying packaging types.
The Sewtec engineering team designed and developed an automated bespoke case packer that would collate and package different types of tobacco products in high volume, without the need for change-over tools, using an indexing racetrack system for efficiency.
Products arrive at the system at a speed of 120 ppm. The system erects cartons from flat and uses a flexible Servo pusher to fill each one with products. Each SRP carton features a pop-up marketing banner, also incorporated into the carton lid’s design, and is folded and ticked before it exits the machine.
Many different packaging types are supported, with multiple systems now deployed globally.
