US manufacturer ESS Technologies has designed the new Model CE15 Robotic Case Erector and CS15 Modular Case Sealer that can integrate with existing case packing lines.

The machines will enable manufacturers to automate manual case erecting and closing processes in a limited factory floor space.

The newly designed CE15 / CS15 machines can be used to pack pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and consumer goods products.

Equipped with a FANUC M-10iA robot with custom, ESS-designed end-of-arm tooling (EOAT), the CE15 Robotic Case Erector is capable of producing up to 15 cases per minute.

The robot picks a case from case magazine to square the sides using the special EOAT and runs it across a bottom closer.

Following this, the case is transported through the case conveyor to a manual or automated loading station.

"The newly designed CE15 / CS15 machines can be used to pack pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and consumer goods products."

The CS15 can be integrated with the case loading systems, along with labellers, shrink wrappers, case check-weighers, and robotic palletising systems to develop a complete case packaging line.

Both systems use Allen Bradley controls and feature a colour touchscreen HMI.

ESS works with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to integrate coders, labellers and inspection systems to develop a solution for track-and-trace case packing applications.

The company has also installed multiple serialisation-enabled case packers in North America and provides shipment of serialised cartoners, case packers and robotic pallet cells within three to five months depending on the machine and application.
