Bradman Lake latest generation Case Packer serialization and aggregation enabled

Case Packing enabled with serialization and aggregation, is now available from Bradman Lake for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare applications.

The ZX600 Robotic Case Packer machine which erects, loads and closes cases within a very small footprint is aggregation, serialisation and 21CFR compliant for full product and operator traceability.

Visit our booth #4027 at PackExpo Las Vegas to learn how you can select the right equipment that is enabled to comply with the pending industry regulations.

The machine uses Fanuc M10 (6 axis) robot that not only collates the products but also preconditions the cases for repeatable carton loading and is used to tuck in the rear top flap for closing.

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!

This monoblock machine with integral electrical control allows for simple, fast, installation and commissioning.

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 ‘FactoryTalk® ViewPoint’ for system data collection.

FactoryTalk® ViewPoint is utilised for the local connectivity to link each machine, providing system control and performance data locally at each of the machines HMI’s. FactoryTalk® Analytics is utilised for the remote connectivity to transmit real time data remotely to a secure machine cloud. This provides real time machine and system data that can be viewed remotely from anywhere around the globe. 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. A flexible, intelligent system allows for an exhaustive range of possible system configurations to meet every conceivable packaging need.
