High Speed 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.

Kraken’s latest 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 loading orientation.

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.

Multi product applications: Bottles of all sizes for food and beverage and house hold consumables. As well, stand up pouches.
