Maximizing Cartoning Systems
Infeed & Transfer
High Speed Accumulator
"Bag-in-box” cartoning is a packaging
technique used throughout a number of industries, predominantly in food manufacturing
facilities. Cartoning and product bagging machines are for the most part
standardized and time tested. The issues in many of these integrated systems
however, lies in the transferring of bags filled with product top the travelling
buckets of the cartoning machine.
Kraken Automation’s infeed and transfers
systems for product handling of bagged or pouched products for bag-in-box
applications are the best systems available on the market. They are industry
tested and proven for a comprehensive range of products and formats such
as cereal, pasta, spice seasoning, chocolate mix, potato, rice etc. Our innovative
product feed systems are key in optimizing packaging systems between baggers,
pouchers, flow wrappers to cartoners and case packing operations.
Typical Infeed Transfer system for single or multi component cartoning requirements.
Our systems are engineered and capable to address a wide
variety of other product formats other than bags and pouches and include
food trays, bar products, frozen foods, meat, dairy etc. ( Contact Kraken
for your specific applications and requirements.
Handles random fed pouches and replaces manual
Kraken Automation has developed some of the fastest,
most efficient, reliable intelligent product feeding, accumulation and
distribution systems available on the market today.
The Kraken KAIT-120
is a cost effective product feeding system which utilizes motion control
roller infeeds with multi stages that work synchronously to adjust speeds
to launch products travelling through the product accumulator buffering
area into the launch target (transfer paddles). This system incorporates
product feed intelligence that accepts random fed products from baggers,
pouchers and flow wrappers and feeds them consistently on pitch and into
the required target each and every time. This system is engineered to
handle a variety of product formats; from pouches, & bags, to bars,
trays, square, rectangular, circular/disk shaped products etc.
system can also be engineered to handle twin and multi-pouch Infeed and

The Multiple Bagger, High Speed, Smart Infeed
Gone are the days when heavily mechanical transferring machines such as
slide gates and sweeps were necessary for cartoner loading. These are the
days of Servo technology, with Kraken Automation Inc. ahead of the field
with innovative, fast precision packaging infeed delivery and transfer
KRAKEN KSBIT-240 Servo Smart-Belt Infeed Transfer
The key advantage of the KSBIT-240 is its ability
to manage product from multiple bagger at high transfer rates through
a single servo smart belt transfer system thereby eliminating the need
and the costs for individual transfers for each bagger. The KSBIT-240
is an all inclusive system package complete with controls capable of
accepting product randomly delivered and conveying 240, 18” long
bags per minute, synchronous with the transfer mechanism and eliminating
wait time in the transfer system.

Product Gapper Infeed System - Ideal Infeed Product
Placement System for Case Packing Applications
The KRAKEN KSBGI Smart-Belt Product Gapping Infeed
system provides end users with the ability to provide
repetitive precision placement and conveying of
bagged or cartoned product, regardless of the packaging
The smart-belt infeed system for case packing applications
comes in a two lane dual direction design and can
be easily integrated with the full line of case
packing systems available from Kraken Automation.

Typical System Features:
- Ability to gap product
at rates up to 150 products per minute (ppm)
(with bag length of 8")
- Can smart gap product with
3.5:1 size turndown ratio. Larger size turndown
ratios to 5:1 are available with enhanced smart
gapper conveyor design.
- Provide a repeatable gap
variation to within +/- ½" using properly formed
- Air accumulation infeed
to smart gaper conveyor provides frictionless
accumulation of product for controlled stoppages
and conveying recovery.

This system can work completely as a standalone, “plug & play” or
can be fully integrated into an existing carton packaging line-up. Because
of its ease of assembly production start-up can be in less than one day.
Fully tested and field proven the Kraken KSIT/MD-100 has a transfer rate
of up to 150 bags per minute on a single machine. The system highlighted
in the video shows it complete with integrated metal detection.
KSIT-100, together with the complete family of infeed and transfer systems
are best in class, proven technology that will achieve your bag/pouch infeed
and transfer requirements. The KSIT-100 is the latest in industry robust
and proven high speed, servo transfer technology available on the market

This system offers end users the ability to deliver
and transfer bagged product in single pack mode synchronous to a cartoner
infeed system or, where alternate hand packing or bag conveying is required,
divert the product via a by-pass though to the downstream handling systems.
( The Kraken KAIT-120 Accumulator, Indexer Transfer
system also can be engineered to handle twin and multi pouch infeed requirements…this
all dependent on pouch sizes, speeds and applications).
Ideal for Chemical, Food Additives, Spices, Concrete Pet Food, Farming,
Grain, Bag Handling Applications!
Heavy-duty infeed and transfer systems
ideally suited for robotic palletizing operations with material handling
requirements for heavy mesh/paper/plastic bagged product. (Click here for
This unique bag transfer mechanism transfers heavy,
mesh, paper or plastic bags from filler conveyors from (wide edge leading
to the main trunk transport conveyor (narrow edge for robotic palletizing
cells. These systems are a huge benefit to operations with manual labor
for bag handling and will aid tremendously in reducing physical injuries
prevalent in such work environments.
Some System Features:
- Bag conveying
system incorporating belt over roller center tracked (conveyors with
belts wider than longer) and roller conveyors;
- Control system providing
bag routing capability from filling units to robotic palletizing cells
- Handles a variety of heavy load mesh/paper/plastic
bagged product of various sizes.
