A top load case packer, the 4000TL-Robotic is aimed at small to midsized companies that manufacture a variety of SKUs within the away-from-home, towel, and tissue industry. It uses a FANUC M-710iC/50 FP robot to provide a flexible packer with different end-of-arm tool options to efficiently handle specific applications. The machine can handle a wide range of products in a variety of pack patterns, primarily HSC cases up to 12 picks per minute.
The 4000TL-Robotic comes with a 10 in. (25.4 cm) Allen-Bradley color touch screen HMI for a simple and operator-friendly interface. It achieves changeovers in less than 15 minutes to minimize downtime.
An optional auto-adjust end-of-arm tool is available. The robotic arm will also automatically adjust to the correct end-of-arm tool dependent on the application and product if there are multiple options.
Another advantage the 4000TL-Robotic brings to customers is a compact footprint, occupying a similar floor space as hand-pack operations. The machine is also designed to be easily integrated into packaging lines with other end-of-line equipment.
