Our customer, who works in the bakery industry producing biscuits for on-sale through the retail sector, required a robust system to accommodate their heavy-duty packaging needs.
On consultation, the Sewtec design team quickly understood the throughput demand faced by the customer and proposed an automated bespoke packing system consisting of a 2-axis robot and custom vacuum gripper, to manage high volumes of product with speed and efficiency, with tool-free machine adjustment included.
In operation, a separate machine feeds case types into the system for erection. Using Rockwell controls and vacuum grippers, the Sewtec 2-axis robot loads each layer of products into the pre-built cases before each one is moved to a separate Sewtec-delivered closing system and shut securely.
Sewtec has since provided multiple systems to the customer alongside ten years of trouble-free service.
