Kliklok launches new Robot loader at PPMA

29 July 2011

Kliklok International will be demonstrating their new Collating Robotic Loader (CRL) and Race Track system at the forthcoming PPMA exhibition

A brand new innovation from Kliklok, the CRL is a flexible machine ideally suited to handle the output from low to high speed wrappers and collate wrapped products into cartons or trays at up to 600 products per minute, with a maximum load of 3kg. The CRL incorporates advanced design electronic motion control technology using a combination of variable frequency control, servo motor drives and a robotic Flex Picker.

Three versions of the CRL are available depending on speed and tracking distance requirements, with optional modules such as a Carton Management System which allows cartons to be either indexed into place or to be continuously moving while being loaded.

Multiple CRL units can be positioned along a cartoner’s infeed conveyor to enable product from additional sources to be combined, enabling the full speed capacity of the cartoner to be utilised. Built-in ‘plug-and-play’ style communication between the CRL units creates easy production line expansion with the addition of further units.

User-friendly innovative recipe-driven menus are accessed from Kliklok’s Insight colour touch screen to ensure fast change over between product styles, sizes and collations. This also offers superior troubleshooting capability, advanced servo diagnostics and a complete digital manual.
