For more than 19 years, Case Packing Systems (CPS), based in Stramproy, Netherlands, has designed and supplied high-tech systems for automatic end-of-line packaging of product-filled bags, which can be placed into cardboard boxes, trays, crates or even large containers and pallet boxes up to 1,500mm high.
'Tailor-made' is the key word describing all CPS case packer lines. Each and every case packer configuration is specially adapted to the requirements and circumstances of the user. CPS technical proposals are based on a very thorough inventory of the user's requirements as to available space, product changeover, flexibility, output and internal logistic optimisation.
For pillow bags, gusseted bags, block bottom bags, the gravity case packer system horizontally positions the products in cardboard boxes, trays or display cartons.
The side loader can be used for loading pillow bags, Doypacks, block bottom bags, gusseted bags and small boxes. The SL 105 side loader case packer system vertically positions the packages in one or more rows into cardboard boxes and trays / display cartons.
The SL 120 is a top-loading case packer system for vertically positioning Doypacks in trays / display cartons or cardboard boxes.
For pillow, gusseted and block bottom bags. The dual case packer system vertically and horizontally positions packages in cardboard boxes or display cartons.
Pick-and-place robotic loading systems can be used to load all types of bags into cardboard boxes, plastic or cardboard crates containers and trays. The pick and place systems can be used for special applications and fragile products.
Both these loaders can be used for all bag types. They are case packer systems to load bags filled with agricultural products like potatoes, onions, carrots and fruit. The CL 86 container loader can load bags into containers from 800mm x 600mm up to 1,500mm in height.
The CL 64 crate loader can load bags into plastic or cardboard crates of 600m x 400mm. A very special feature of both these loading units is the smooth bag handling of delicate and fragile products.
The Sealchecker Omega is a continuous in-line testing unit for flexible bags containing fresh (gas flushed) products to be checked on bag leaks.
CPS can also supply:
Packs trays with the CLP case packer
Due to the fact that products are not stacked, rigid, semi-flexible and even fully-flexible products can be handled with the CLP case packer. The in-feed system is even capable of rotating individual products, allowing you to create a wide variety in packing patterns. Thanks to the fact that there is only a vertical movement, the CLP case packer system is very reliable even at high capacity.
Everything under IPC control
All CPS case packing systems are controlled by a high-tech IPC control unit.
A modem connection for remote diagnostic and programming actions is standard equipment. In addition CPS offers a line events data system (LEDS), which presents read out of all relevant line events and production data on screen or printed in Windows® Excel.
The operation of the entire case packing line is effected via a menu-operated TFT colour touch screen / control panel with fault indication and troubleshooting features.
