Drop Load Case Packing in a Small Footprint
(4’ X 12’) including infeed and
Lane Diverter, 130 BPM / 20 CPM) Kraken KCP130-20
Achieving greater throughput
and product handling within very limited footprints,
multi product SKUs and at high speeds is a
goal for many manufacturing facilities.
line engineering and integration of our very
own design and manufactured drop-load case
packing machine, along with insertion of case
erector and conveyance, demonstrate the highest
level of creativity, flexibility, and customization
to meet and exceed customer's requirements .
Our recent high speed,
small footprint case packing system, design
and layout allow for an area for cases to be
erected (two different case sizes and bottles)
provide for product infeed and case conveyance,
and then introduce cases to loader with correct
This was achieved in
an area of just less than 400 sq feet for a
recent customer. A huge challenge given the
production throughput and machinery requirements
for that space. Bottles are presented single
file, feeding into a lane diverter system and
four lane infeed accumulation area, batch loaded
onto a dead plate and then drop loaded into
cases. Loaded cases are then discharged and
conveyed to a case sealer and palletizing.
This system replaced an existing manual case
erect and product load operation and took productivity
and efficiency to new levels within the plant.
Bottles of all sizes for food and beverage and
house hold consumables. As well, stand up pouches.
