See next steps into the future!

Visit us on the 3rd or 4th of April at the Empack 2019 exhibition in s´Hertogenbosch, Netherlands.

We invite you to visit the A+F booth 1D146 to experience our A+F Packaging machine FlexLine 3D live.
This packaging unit is capable of creating trays, packages or wrap-around cartons allowing the flexible change of formats. Products will be identified using a 3D camera.

Whether we are talking about cartons, bags, sticks, bars, deep drawn parts or other products – all are identified by the 3D camera system then positioned and placed in the carton. This technology enables a very gentle product handling.

The system can produce a large number of carton variations, for example trays, wrap-around cartons or boxes. The various carton formats will be pre-glued in the integrated tray erector using hot melt glue.

Actuators enable the operator to adjust the system fully automatic. The use of format change parts and the change time will be reduced to a minimum.

The packing is done by a 4-achses Delta 3 robot with specific grippers. These can be replaced using a quick change mechanism. The number of Delta 3 robots used, determines the speed and output of the machine.
Computer controlled, the products will be placed in one or more layers in the open carton. When the preset quantity of product is packed, the carton will go through the closing unit. The carton can be marked with a barcode, the best before date or other information. The pack will then be conveyed to the palletizing station.
Discover Digital Packaging – in particular the module Condition Monitoring. It provides insight into your machine by gathering data of the machine, production and machine environment. These are saved, archived and made available using the A+F Dashboard.

You have plans to change the way you do your packaging? We are glad to provide insight into the necessary technology and help you to find the right solution.

Please schedule a meeting using our mailbox: We are looking forward to see you in s´Hertogenbosch.
