Schneider Packaging Equipment Company’s high-speed, top-loading Robotic Vertical Carton/Case Loader (RVCL) is equipped with Fanuc Robotics delta robots for accumulating, top-load carton and case loading, in high-speed pick-and-place applications. Designed to handle multiple products and packing combinations, the RVCL uses delta robots and vision to locate, inspect, orient and nest product for high-speed top-carton or case loading. The system is capable of loading standard RSC cases, HSC cases, top-load cartons and display trays. Product can be loaded horizontally for bulk packing or vertically for high impact point-of-sale display trays. Equipped with advanced vision-guided robotics, even products with a complex shape can be tightly packed, minimizing packaging materials and maximizing sustainability. The system is designed for very high efficiency, rapid changeovers, simple maintenance, lower total cost of ownership, smaller footprint and sustainable operations, the company says.
