EndFlex has announced the addition of the PKR modular pick-and-place cell with delta robot to its lineup of case and tray packing machines.Designed as a packing solution for flexible bags and packages, the PKR Delta joins the pick and place family alongside the PKR Gantry, which is used to pack more rigid cans, bottles, jars, cartons and similarly packaged products, the Las Vegas-based company said.
The load-case-and-tray packing machines were designed to accommodate several rigid and flexible package styles, the company. It noted that its customers are using the PKR Delta to package a range of products, including personal care items, vitamin gummies, vegetables, and snack foods.
A flexible system
Both robotic options were designed by the EndFlex in-house team of robotic specialists with product integrity and consistency in mind, according to the company. These modular cells achieve their gentle product handling by either vacuum or mechanical means and can be customized for a wide variety of case or tray sizes and pack patterns.
“Our clients needed faster, more compact and precise modular cells to compete in their respective industries. They came to us with their wish lists and trusted us to find a solution. Our team of engineers and technicians got to work, and their efforts led to this new generation of robotic pick and place cells,” said Jorge Perez, vice president of operations at EndFlex. “The gantry and delta robotic cells we developed allow us to offer unique new solutions to some of the old packaging challenges.”
EndFlex said it can customize these modular pick and place cells to fit into any existing production line or be integrated as part of a complete packaging solution to include automatic case erecting, tray forming, sealing and robotic palletizing.
