DOM – Vertical cartoning machines

Automatic cartoning machine with filling from the top for use with American boxes or pre-formed boxes.
Automatic, motorized adjustments, very simple format changes. The vertical cartoning machine opens and fills with pick & place, or the robotic system, the boxes in various formats and closes them with adhesive tape or hot glue. From storage placed in a facilitated position, the box is picked, opened and placed on the automatic belts that bring it to the filling zone. The machine is a line machine and is therefore very compact in size.
Filling is carried out automatically by a system that picks the products and deposits them inside the box. The picking system varies based on the type of product. In some cases, you can pick multiple products simultaneously. The multipack will be previously, automatically created by our grouping systems.

General features
The vertical cartoning machine was designed for installation downstream of the packaging line, but also as an independent unit. The pick & place ensures fast and accurate picking of products arriving from the loading conveyor belt and precise box filling. Different types of products can be processed. They can be manufactured using different configurations inside the box according to the request, and the box itself can have various dimensions; the product arrival station, product picking and box opening are compact. Construction is robust, but at the same time they are all “separable” to allow the operator full access. Having filled the boxes, they are pushed towards the exit and the machine closes the flaps and tapes the “pads”. Options available: hot glue.
Finally, a cartoning machine with all the automatic and automated adjustments.

Specific features
The strengths of the vertical cartoning machine are:
Compactness, reduced size, high speed up to 20 boxes/minute with multiple pick & place.
Automated adjustments.
Fast format change, easy access to the parts to adjust, movements on the dovetail guides and recirculating ball slides.
Siemens management PLC.

ICE – Highly automated carton sleever

DM- PACK Cartesian automatic palletiser

Cartesian palletiser with the gripper picking head and robotic movement with an open structure, with the possibility of a palletiser on the ground or on product service rollers arriving from a line (or multiple lines in a robotic version).
Accessible and highly practical respecting operator safety with the photoelectric barriers. The robot or pick and place is customised to delicately handle the product and turn it to the suitable position before placing it into the pallet. Simple configuration called “GROUND PALLET” where the empty pallet is positioned by an operator with the pallet truck by hand. Picking the filled pallet takes place in the same way with the pallet truck by hand by an operator.

General features

Palletiser available with multiple bays or single bay: new generation, designed to have reduced dimensions, easy use, easy movement from one line to the next, and a contained price. Support structure on which the LOADER moves, equipped with a gripper head for product picking. The loader moves along the Cartesian axes X, Y, Z controlled by BRUSHLESS or asynchronous MOTORS with an inverter based on the speed and precision required. Following the program set, the LOADER moves to the product picking point and picks it, thanks to the gripper head equipped with a vacuum suction with suction cups or with grippers, or with a robot in the anthropomorphic version.

Buhrs DPS  Depalletizer 

The Buhrs DPS is a revolutionary system for the automatic depalletizing of pallets with flat packaging. The starting points for this new system – developed by Buhrs – were high net output, maximum automation, reduction of human touch points and minimization of the transport movements around the machine…

The Buhrs DPS – DePalletizer Singulator – is a system that can receive strapped pallets and automatically process these pallets with (wind-mill pattern) stacked material into a continuous singulated stream / flow of board material for packaging machines on one side, and separated return materials on the other side. With this method manual handling is eliminated such as:

  • De-strapping and pallet label reading
  • Removing covers and separation sheets

Removing packaging material and loading the feeding mechanism of the downstream packaging line such as a case erector or wraparound cartoner.

Further features that the system offers are:

  • Quality control of print, orientation and sticking material, with cameras and thickness control to detect double or triple picks
  • Pallet change without interrupting the process
  • Automated set-up in the machine, without manual adjustments

Other advantages the Buhrs DPS brings are:

  • Eliminating of forklift movements in the packaging hall
  • Increased efficiency of the downstream packaging lines which
