Box-filling conveyor in the agri-food sector.
Our customer uses various sizes of cardboard boxes for several types of cakes and biscuits (cookies, fondants, tarts, loose products etc.). They wanted to automate the box-packing operation for their products with a comfortable workspace for their teams.
The project consists of three conveyors.
The first collects the biscuits after they have been flow packed and feeds the second conveyor. This conveyor has sensors to activate flaps – two flaps are controlled by an automatic controller and the third is fixed.
The chutes are adjustable to suit different cake and biscuit sizes (several sizes of cookies, brownies, muffins etc.).
The box locations are equipped with adjustable guides for different box sizes.
Finally, the boxes are pushed on to a third conveyor that feeds the palletising station.
The rate requested by the customer is 150 cakes and biscuits per minute.

- Product transported: packaged biscuits
