Tertiary Packaging Equipment - RSC Case Packers
Bradman Lake offers both pre-formed case and wraparound case packers in combination with appropriate collators for an extensive range of products. Where a pre-formed case is used, there are three machine type options; side load, bottom load, and top load depending upon the nature of the product, its handling ability, and the required format within the case.
Our range of case packers delivers flexible solutions to satisfy the demands of modern shelf-ready retailing.
All machines can handle corrugated and carton board materials. RSC cases can be sealed with adhesive tape and / or hot melt adhesive.
Side Load (SLCP) and Bottom Load (BLCP) Case Packers
Side Load (SLCP) and Bottom Load (BLCP) Case Packers pre-collate products into the required formats before loading them into standard RSC cases. Selection of the style of machine is dependent upon the type of product, for example bottom loading is used for bottles or applications where a product must remain upright. Side loading is particularly suitable for cartons, especially where the top end of the cartons must be visible upon opening the case flaps.
Top Load Case Packers (MX)
The MX Robotic Top Load Case Packer is extremely flexible due to its modular design. Combinations of modules can be constructed to suit all applications, including other non-cartoned products. The module principle ‘future proofs’ the machine allowing for variations and upgrades to be implemented easily when production and marketing demands change.
The MX Robotic Top Load Case Packer can be supplied with a flat belt or dual race track (DRT) infeeds to suit various product types and collation formats. For ultimate flexibility, the machines can be supplied with two infeeds, for example, a flat belt and a DRT (Dual Race Track) infeed to allow production to switch from ‘flat packing’ to ‘on edge’ packing for shelf-ready display packs.
Size changing is tool-less via hand-wheels and digital indicators.
Top Load Case Packers (ZX600)
Our new ZX600 Top Load Case Packer erects, loads, and closes cases within a very compact footprint, and utilises a six-axis robot via add on instruction; embracing full flexibility; the robot is also used to manipulate loading 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 maximizing pallet utilization. It also negates the need for an additional mechanical loading mask and associated size-change parts, reducing inventory, change-over times, and maintenance.
