Bradman Lake next-generation Case Packing technology at Gulfood 2017

Visit stand (Z3 B90) to discover the very latest in case packing technology at Gulfood Manufacturing, 31 October – 2 November 2017, Dubai World Trade Centre.

Our new ZX600 Case Packer erects, loads and closes cases within a very compact footprint, and utilises a 6 axis robot via add on instruction; embracing full flexibility; the robot is also used to manipulate loading of the collation and case transfer reducing complexity and mechanical assemblies. An integrated ‘on demand’ glue system with remote glue pellet store and controlled via add on instruction.

The innovative routine for preconditioning the case allows minimal clearance between the product collation and the case providing material costs savings and maximising pallet utilisation. It also negates the need for an additional mechanical loading mask and associated size-change parts, reducing inventory, change-over times and maintenance.

The robot and glue systems directly interface with the Rockwell Automation ControlLogix “PAC” using pre-loaded customized add-on instructions. The same “PAC” unit is used to control the multi-axis case handling system. A lean, yet powerful control architecture with no black boxes!

When the ZX600 is integrated with other Bradman Lake equipment (downstream or upstream), the system is set-up with a single point of access with remote connectivity for online fault diagnostics and Rockwell’s ‘FactoryTalk® ViewPoint’ for system data collection.

The machine is ‘aggregation and serialisation’ enabled for validation with the addition of simple modular expansion. Ideally suited to Pharma applications. There is also the option of 21 CFR compliance.

Bradman Lake packaging machines incorporate the latest integrated connectivity Industry 4.0 technology to communicate seamlessly over a common network and protocol. This enables the installation of customised systems that deliver enhanced productivity, rock solid security and operational intelligence with live data output to drive smarter management decisions. This flexible, intelligent system allows for an exhaustive range of possible system configurations to meet every conceivable packaging need.

Visitors to our stand can find out more about the advanced features of these machines as well as the Group’s other integrated packaging technologies, which can be supplied turnkey or individually.

Ergonomically friendly and efficient, the ZX600 system offers cost benefits to customers with the flexibility to meet current and future market demands..
