Pro Mach Showcases a Fully Integrated Case Packing and Palletizing System at Pack Expo 2014

Date: October 24, 2014

  • The fully functioning system – from infeed conveyor to case packers to accumulation conveyors to robotic palletizer – illustrates how Pro Mach removes risk from multi-vendor systems.
  • This solution also demonstrates how customers can achieve faster startup and better overall performance with the latest packaging technology.
  • See the complete integrated system at Brenton Pack Expo Booth N-5427.
     

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. — Pro Mach highlights at Pack Expo 2014 in Chicago, November 2-5, the advantages of working with a company that not only supplies state-of-the-art packaging machines, but also provides a one-stop-shop for integrating an extensive range of solutions from sister companies into a unified, high throughput end-of-line packaging solution. (Brenton Pack Expo Booth # N-5427).

The integrated case packing/palletizing system at Pack Expo includes packaging solutions from such Pro Mach businesses as Brenton, Currie by BrentonEdson, KLEENLine, Shuttleworth, and Tekkra. This demonstration system recreates a packaging environment in which multiple SKUs in mixed shipping containers are loaded and shipped on a single pallet. The integrated system demonstrates, among other things, how a whole new approach to robotic palletizing can stabilize potentially unstable loads of mixed shipping containers. 

RSC Cases and Shrink Wrapped Trays on One Pallet

Matrix, powered by Pro Mach, Pack Expo Booth # N 5321, will utilize a Toyo Jidoki TT-15CW-10 to fill liquid into and cap premade spouted pouches and a Matrix Morpheus box-continuous-motion bagger will form-fill-seal pillow bags of candy. The candy packed bags will be loaded into a new Edson servo controlled Raptor top load case packer for placement in RSC cases. The spouted pouches filled with liquid will be loaded onto a KLEENline infeed conveyor and packed into trays by a BrentonPro Mach-2 side load flexible case packer. Then a Tekkra system shrink-wraps the trays. 

Both the RSC cases and shrink-wrapped trays are routed to a Currie by Brenton MasterPal palletizer via two Shuttleworth accumulation conveyors. While one layer of cases or trays accumulates, the other layer is loaded onto the pallet, creating alternating layers of RSC cases and shrink-wrapped trays. This alternating line approach maximizes palletizing efficiency. The patented MasterPal loads and unloads full layers of product at up to five layers per minute. MasterPal provides consistent tight layer grids of palletized product through a unique “cradle and place” technology to gently handle full layers of product with each motion. The tight-grid capabilities of the MasterPal will be showcased through the alternating layers of RSC cases and shrink-wrapped trays.

“The benefit of using Pro Mach for end-of-line solutions is that we integrate other Pro Mach division equipment as well as customer specified equipment to provide one point of contact for sales and project management,” said Devan Hutchens, Senior Project Manager, Brenton, who led the team that assembled and integrated the Pack Expo system. “We bring the equipment into the Brenton Center for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence, set it up, and test it as a fully integrated system. This creates a seamless factory acceptance test because at the Brenton Center, customers focus on how the system meets their need rather than on pieces and parts of the solution.”
