Schneider Packaging Equipment Unveils Combination Robotic Case Packer - Palletizer

BREWERTON, NY (July 2004) - Schneider Packaging Equipment Co., Inc., specializing in end-of-line solutions for case packing and palletizing needs, is pleased to unveil its new Robotic Case Packer-Palletizer. This all-in-one technology combines a case packer and a palletizer into a compact, cost-effective solution.

"We found customers are looking for a single, automated end-of-line solution that is as focused as possible," says Pete Squires, Vice President of Controls. "The Robotic Packer-Palletizer loads, labels, scans and palletizes cases with a single robotic arm. This increases automation while maintaining a small footprint, thereby, saving plant floor space."

The Robotic Packer-Palletizer utilizes a 5-axis Motoman robot with XRC Controller, capable of moving up to 176 lbs. The machine's compact footprint allows for pallet sizes of up to 48" x 48" and unit loads up to 72" high. Capable of running single line applications, the Robotic Packer-Palletizer's production rates depend on numerous factors, including the product being packaged, the number of products per case and pallet patterns. The custom designed End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) is flexible enough to "grab" and pack various size objects, including boxes, bags, bundles, bales, cans, bottles and jars.

The Robotic Packer-Palletizer has a programmable Allen Bradley Logix controller with a touch screen operator interface, making changeovers easy. The machine features a product and case infeed conveying system, enabling simple integration with other equipment. Cases are automatically erected, and the EOAT places product into the case. Cases are then sealed both top and bottom with tape or glue. The EOAT then labels, scans and palletizes the case onto a fixed pallet station, all with the same robot!

"We have designed the Robotic Packer-Palletizer to supply as much functionality as possible with a single robot," says Paul Burdick, Director of Sales and Marketing. "This solution represents a subset of Schneider's overall end-of-line automation capabilities."

Schneider manufactures of a complete line of case packers, tray packers, and case erectors along with robotic palletizing systems. Schneider offers a variety of ancillary equipment such as cartoners, conveyors, pallet dispensers, shuttle cars, and elevators, that can easily be integrated with coding/labeling equipment, product code scanners, weight checking, and stretch or shrink wrapping equipment to provide a complete system solution. Some of their specialty markets include the beverage, paper, replication, industrial, personal care and food industries.

Whatever the requirements, Schneider works to provide the best solution for any unique need. For more information, contact our Sales Department by phone at 315-676-3035 or fax at 315-676-2875, or you can visit.
