Intermittent, Tray and Hood Packer
Bundaberg Sugar required several different forms of sugar to be packed into tray and hood style cases.
RML provided a customised case packer with a T-Bot robot, the T-Bot is a two axis robot with articulating flaps on a vacuum plucking pickhead.
A racetrack is used to collate the incoming product into the desired number of rows, T-Bot plucks and folds a lid before picking up the collated product inside the lid.
A second plucker picks the base from the magazine and places it into the main drive where glue is applied, the product and lid is placed on the unfolded base by the T-Bot.
The base is folded as it is lowered through a form, finally the assembled tray and lid is outfed through a tape machine.
