Prodec Side Loading Case Packer FL-3

Medium/high capacity compact and flexible side loading packer

Solution for side loading, modular, compact and flexible case packer. Designed for medium/high per minute case production, all in a single monoblock.

The FL-3 is side loading, modular, compact and flexible packer, designed for medium/high per minute case production, all in a single monoblock.

With this generation of packers, the market needs in automating the end of line products whose regular forms are readily manageable at high production volumes are catered to.

Unit for side loading case packer with high speed case erector of three stations allows incorporation of any power system or stacking of containers according to the characteristics of the same.

A renewed highly accessible design for easy operation that supports a variety of possible configurations depending on the type of product specifications and the required production speed. High performance equipment to work with high standards and excellent production efficiency. An accessible and user-friendly design, plan for the grouping of containers, forming, filling and closing of cases in a single compact unit.

Lifting or lowering carriers are available for the rigid or flexible packing of cases and specific power systems for packaging cannot be combined with each other. Ergonomic case store and large capacity. The machine incorporates a forced opening of the cases to ensure the correct position at the filling station and transfer to the sealing station. Closing of cases may be affected by adhesive tape, hot glue application or a combination of both systems.

Horizontal case store with motor. store length 1000 mm. As the cases are removed from the system, a case presence detector causes the progress of the tape ensuring that the product is always ready for removal. When the store is empty (or there are an insufficient number of cases for smooth operation), the machine is stopped and a visual signal warns the operator of the lack of cases. Optionally you can install an additional detection of the minimum number of cases that must always be present at the store so that the operator can reload before a machine stop.

Removing the unit by folding cartons using suckers installed on a semicircular arm with mechanical movement. Forced opening of the case by a suction cup system and a mechanism for side squaring with presence and formation detection of the case.

Transporting pre-opened case to the packaging station through a system of drag chains.

Combined introducer group using pneumatic pusher, which with the help of a guide of the case flaps installed thereto, ensure transfer process of set of product packs into the case.

The equipment can absorb normal production of 17 cases per minute.

All security or system failure elements, such as accumulation of product on the store conveyor, poorly sealed doors or protections, presence of case, malformed case, lack of air pressure, etc are displayed on a touchscreen built into the control panel for quick location. The touch screen performs the function of man/machine interface, helping to quickly solve any problems which may have occurred in machine because of two utilities: Editing of error messages. Fault location. Being an open system, the staff has access to counters, timers, etc. without the need of specialized personnel, because of the simplicity of its use. The system offers the possibility of giving a complete history of the state of the machine: Number of cycles. Number of cases. Number of case failures. Number of introduction failures. Hours of machine running. All electrical machine command is centralized in a PLC, allowing versatility and speed or system changes.

Compact design:
All the functions described are developed in a versatile, efficient and compact equipment, occupying a small and simple handling space for the operator. Robust and transparent from any constructive conception angle, it allows one to observe all mechanisms and operational functionality from the outside.

The clean, open design without mechanical barriers, greatly simplifies all interventions required on the equipment, whether by a change in format or a simple cleaning and maintenance regulation or routine.

Its advanced concept allows an expansion of its functions or increasing workstations to suit the required production needs, both in forming and filling.

We have used specific design methods for its development to optimize the comfort and convenience of staff working on the machine.

Information Management:
A powerful software developed by our technical team allows you total control over the device functions. You can also perform simple formatting changes through the incorporated touch screen. Through this, it is possible to verify production efficiency for shifts or slots, making it an effective analytical instrument. It is ready to integrate various lines of work according to the standard OMAC.
