Two new machines for Endoline Machinery

15 July 2011

At the PPMA Show in Hall 5 on Stand D30, the forthcoming PPMA Show will see a duo of new machines making its UK exhibition debut by Endoline Machinery

The company will be showcasing a complete packaging assembly line using a robotic pick and place system – as part of their recent partnership deal with ABB Robotics – alongside a new high speed servo driven case erector.

The ABB pick and place robot forms an integral part of the new packaging line and is built into an Endoline conveyor system which feeds from a case erector and into a case sealer. The entire packaging line is managed by Endoline, from determining the type of Endoline sealer and erector used, through to programming the robot to suit each individual customer need’s - highlighting the diversity of this project.

Endoline will showcase the new line at the PPMA Show using an ABB IRB1600 robot – which delivers maximum output from a smaller footprint. Alan Yates, CEO of Endoline Machinery, commented: “We are delighted to become part of ABB’s Robotic Partner Network.

With their network of global offices we are looking forward to working with them to support our worldwide activities especially in China where we are opening a satellite manufacturing unit.”

The move into robotics follows a staggering 300% rise in the demand for industrial robots within the UK food and beverage sector over the last three years - and the subsequent launch of the new Endoline 247/248 Case Erector will further cement Endoline’s position within the industry as a serious player.

The high speed Case Erector, available as a tape or glue model, can run to speeds of up to 25 cases per minute, an increase of 12%. The increase in speed is due to the inclusion of a programmable servo drive system which permits greater flexibility by allowing instant acceleration and stopping of cases through the erecting process.

Alan comments: “We are constantly looking at the most innovative technology to ensure that our machine offering is of the highest standard as many of our customers are requesting higher speed and efficiency settings for their packaging lines.”
