Compact design 'aids versatility of new robotic palletiser'

04 October 2012

Automated packing systems specialist Brillopak has introduced a versatile new robotic palletiser, capable of placing a variety of container formats including crates, cases and trays onto pallets.

The new Brillopak Compact C211 features highly compact dimensions, far smaller than conventional robot cells, which enable the machine to fit easily into even the smallest of factory spaces or to integrate with other packing equipment to provide a complete line solution.

The machine operates at 10 cycles per minute or between 10 and 120 containers per minute dependent on application. A multi-purpose end effector enables it to handle multiple sizes and a simple-to-use touchscreen with pre-set recipe function ensures easy operation and fast changeovers.

The C211 has been constructed with minimal moving parts, providing excellent reliability for round-the-clock operation. A hygienic design with rounded edges and easy access allows fast and effective wash down and maintenance.

Options available include a bale arm closing unit for crates, crate de-stackers, auto bar code detection, vision systems and Ethernet connection for remote access and support.

The C211 is suitable for a wide range of food and general packing applications, including fruit and vegetables, salads, meat, and chilled and frozen foods.
