Prodec Side Loading Case Packer FL-4

High capacity, compact and flexible side loading packer

Modular, compact and flexible solution for packing lateral loads. Designed for high box productions per minute, all in a single monoblock.

The FL-4 is a modular, compact and flexible side case packer, designed for high box productions per minute, all in a single monoblock.

With this generation of case packers, the needs of the market are met in the automation of the end of the product line, which due to its regular shape are easily manageable at high productions.

Unit for high-speed side loading nesting with four-station box former, which allows incorporating any container feeding or stacking system according to their own characteristics.

A renewed design with great accessibility and easy handling that admits a great variety of possible configurations according to the type of product, the specifications and the speed of production required.

High performance equipment to work with high levels of demand and with excellent production efficiency.

An accessible and easy-to-use design, designed for grouping containers, forming, filling and closing boxes in a single, small unit.

Lifting or lowering binders are available for the nesting of rigid or flexible containers, as well as specific feeding systems for non-accumulative containers.

Ergonomic, high-capacity box magazine.

The machine incorporates a system for forced opening of the boxes that ensures their correct position in the filling station and subsequent transfer to the closing station.

The closing of the boxes can be carried out by means of adhesive tape, the application of hot glue or a combination of both systems.

Horizontal cardboard warehouse with motorized dragging. Warehouse length 1000 mm. As the cartons are extracted by the system, a box presence detector causes the conveyor belts to advance, guaranteeing that there is always box ready for extraction. When the warehouse is empty (with an insufficient number of boxes for proper operation), the machine stops and a visual signal warns the operator of the lack of boxes. Optionally, an additional detection of the minimum number of boxes that the warehouse must always have can be installed so that the operator can reload it before a machine stop.

Unitary extraction of the folded cartons by means of suction cups installed on a pneumatic-actuated semicircular movement arm. Forced opening of the box by a suction cup system against suction cup and a lateral squaring mechanism with presence detection and box shaping.

Transport of the pre-open box to the nesting station by means of a chain system with drag stops.

Group introducer assembly by means of a pneumatically actuated pusher, which with the help of a guide mouth of the flaps of the box installed for this purpose, guarantees the process of transferring the set of containers to the interior of the box.

The box forming and closing unit can reach a production of up to a maximum of 25 boxes / minute and as a whole it will depend on the product and the grouping to be made.

All the security elements or possible system failures, such as product accumulation on the feed conveyor, doors or guards that are not properly closed, the presence of a box, a poorly formed box, lack of air pressure, etc. are collected on a touch screen incorporated in the control panel for a quick location.
The touch screen performs the function of MAN / MACHINE INTERFACE, helping to give a quick solution to any type of problem that occurs on the machine, since we have two utilities:
Edition of fault messages. Location of the fault.
Being an open system, staff have access to counters, timers, etc. without the need for specialized personnel, given the simplicity of its use. The system offers the possibility of giving a complete history of the status of the machine:
Number of cycles. Number of boxes. Number of box failures.
Number of failures introduction. Hours of machine running.
All the electrical command of the machine is centralized in a programmable automaton, which allows the system versatility and speed in changes or modifications.

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.
