ROBOTIC LOADING TO
FLOW WRAPPER

Tekpak specializes in Robotic loading applications where there are complex requirements such as loading at high speeds, multiple formats, complex products or layer arrangements, requirement for buffering, row distribution, product alignment.

We work with OEMs of Flow wrappers to provide a fully automated packaging line, which includes design, build and FAT at Tekpak.

Flexible system for high speed pick and place with product tracking for pick and place to and from moving positions.

 

Applications:

  • Loading from primary flow wrappers in to multi-pack wrappers
  • Loading into primary flow wrappers
  • Row aligning and Row Distribution

 

Typical products handled:

  • Blister sheets (pharmaceutical)
  • Metered Dose Inhalers
  • Medical devices
  • Confectionery bars

ROBOTIC CASE PACKING

We have a range of Vertical and Wrap-Around Robotic Case Packers using 2-Axis Robots which pick and place to and from a fixed position.

The pick and place systems are fully programmable and can easily be configured to handle multiple shapes and weights (max payload 50kg) to facilitate different product formats.

 

Applications:

  • Picking and placing products in to cases in single or multiple formats
  • Stacking and loading products and placing in to cases

 

Typical products handled:

  • Confectionary and Cakes in to Cases
  • Cartons containing pharmaceutical products
  • Medical Devices

ROBOTIC LOADING USING VISION

The vision system enables the robots to pick products with non-uniform shapes, randomly fed from belts, and to place them with consistent accuracy to a moving place position. It can also be used to pick specific products from mixed product flows acting only on the required shapes and ignoring any that may be mis-shaped or outside specification. The vision system is fully programmable and can easily be configured to handle multiple shapes to facilitate different product formats. Each camera is parameterization to communicate the required coordinates to the ELAU controller.

Applications:

  • Randomly arriving products that need to be placed to exact location
  • Collating products in to stacks and loading grouped products in to Cartoner

 

Typical products handled:

  • Contact lenses
  • Confectionary
  • Medical Devices

CUSTOMISED CARTONERS

Tekpak specialises in Cartoning applications where there are complex requirements such as complex product handling, high speeds, multiple formats, requirement for Leaflet Insertion, complex products or layer arrangements, requirement for integration with OEM equipment such as Flow Wrapper, Labellers etc.

We can integrate OEM equipment (checkweighers, labellers, printers, vision systems etc) to provide a fully automated packaging line, which includes design, build and FAT at Tekpak.

 

Applications:

  • Loading of flow packs in to cartons

 

Typical products handled:

  • Medical Devices
  • Blister sheets in nested configuration
  • Contact Lens

  • Medical devices

ROBOTIC LOADING TO CARTONER

Tekpak specialises in applications where there is a requirement to load products direct from a production line or from a primary packaging machine in to the infeed of a cartoner.

We can supply this as a retrofitted solution to an existing Cartoning machine.

These projects require complex logic because the robot must pick from and place to a fast-moving position such as the moving infeed of a Cartoner. The Robot and Cartoner exchange signals via digital I/O so that they become a single integrated unit.

We work with OEMs of Cartoning Machines to provide a fully automated packaging line, which includes design, build and FAT at Tekpak.

 

Applications:

  • Loading from primary flow wrapper in to Cartoner
  • Collating products in to stacks and loading grouped products in to Cartoner

 

Typical products handled:

  • Blister sheets (wrapped and unwrapped)
  • Metered Dose Inhalers
  • Medical devices

AUTO-INJECTOR LABELLERS

The system is used where there is a batch driven operation and a requirement for a labelling system, which can incorporate manual loading and unloading.

The labels are inspected before application and include an integrated Vision system for checking label variable print data and label position application.

The system can be integrated with Laser Printer, Cognex Vision System, Label applicator. Control System Allen Bradley or Siemens options.

We work with OEMs of Serialisation equipment to provide a fully automated packaging line, which includes design, build and FAT at Tekpak.

 

Applications:

  • Labelling of Auto Injector Devices with integrated Vision inspection

 

Typical products handled:

  • Auto Injector Devices

SERIALISATION & TE LABELLERS

Tekpak work with OEM Serialisation equipment manufacturers to design and build complete Serialisation and Aggregation systems, which can include other equipment such as Checkweigher/Reject, Vision system / Reject, Bolini Label application, Label code check, label application and position checks using Vision.

We design and build the frame, control system and carton handling system (servo pacing systems and conveyors) to provide a fully automated packaging line, which includes design, build and FAT at Tekpak.

 

Applications:

  • Serialisation of Cartons, Application of TE Label,
  • Carton Bundling and Case Aggregation

 

Typical products handled:

  • Glass Vials in Cartons
  • Metered Dose Inhalers in Cartons
  • Medical devices in cartons
  • Blisters in Cartons
