Feeding system Type AFS 200 for loading von folding box magazines

The feeding system Type AFS 200 is designed to automatically open a shipping carton, pick flat folding boxes and place them in a magazine of a cartoner. The loaded shipping cartons, which are sealed with adhesive tape, are infed either manually by means of a transport belt or automatically with the help of a depalletizing cell. A clamp gripper guided by a 6-axis robot picks a row of folding boxes each time, whereby the clamp moves in a momentary tact. Through the use of individually adjustable connecting elements the system can be used on almost all cartoners found on the market. The compact design with the positioning of the cell above the cartoner helps to minimize the space requirement.

Feeding system Type AFS 1000 for loading folding box magazines

The feeding system Type AFS 1000 is designed to automatically open a shipping carton, pick flat folding boxes and place them in a magazine of a cartoner. The empty carton is disposed of through a chute. The loaded shipping cartons, which are sealed with adhesive tape, are infed either manually by means of a transport belt or automatically with the help of a depalletizing cell. Two grippers guided by 15-axis-dual-arm-robots drive consecutively into gap generated by  tilting movements, clamp a folding box row and pick it from the shipping carton, whereby the arms of the robot move in a momentary tact. Through the use of individually adjustable connecting elements the system can be used on almost all cartoners found on the market. The compact design with the positioning of the cell above the cartoner helps to minimize the space requirement.

Feeding system Type APB 500 for loading magazines of the most varied dispensing devices

The feeding system Type APB 500 is designed to automatically pick packing leaflets from a carton tray and place them in a magazine of a dispensing device. The core of the  system is a revolver drum, the construction of which allows several work stages to be executed at the same time thus resulting in shorter cycle times. The filled carton trays are fed into the upper tray, and at the bottom of the opposite tray, the packing leaflets are separated from the carton tray. Special devices ensure both a complete separation and a comprehensive guidance of the leaflets to the magazine of the dispensing device. This guarantees a safe process and continuous production at high speed. Finally, the empty carton trays are pushed out and passed on to a disposal station. The arrangement of the drum trays enables two different formats to be considered and a simple product selection on the operating panel to be activated. Over two different formats the drum trays must be replaced as part formats. The loaded carton trays, which are sealed with adhesive tape, are infed either manually or by means of a transport belt or automatically with the help of a depalletizing cell. Through the use of individually adjustable connecting elements the system can be used on almost all dispensing or other systems with a magazine found on the market. The compact design helps to minimize the space requirement.
