Strengthening its commitment to creating end-of-line fully automated solutions which directly meets the needs of its customers, Endoline announced at the PPMA Total Show, the introduction of robotic case packing systems to its growing portfolio.
Using the foundation of its robotics division, forged in 2019 through a strategic partnership with FANUC UK, and Endoline’s 40 years of engineering excellence, the addition of robotic case packing technology enhances the company’s reputation as an automation powerhouse.
Not only does the move respond to growing calls from manufacturers for automation with increasing robotic integration, but for systems which are tailored to directly suit business needs – from compact factory footprints to challenging environments – with a good ROI.
Like the company’s palletising systems, the first range launched under the Endoline Robotics division, each case packer is designed and built by Endoline to accommodate various packaging types: bottles, pillow packs, SRP packaging etc.
With a variable throughput speed depending on the application, the case packing systems can also be suited to match a product’s shape and orientation. As with all Endoline systems, the case packer is modular in design and can be fully integrated into existing production lines.
Each Endoline system can also be integrated into a manufacturer’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) to provide a turnkey operation with real-time data reporting capabilities. Through OEM partnerships, Endoline are also able to integrate additional elements into a line, including stretch wrapping, conveyoring and labelling systems making the line seamless and fully automated.
“Endoline are renowned for designing and engineering high-performance reliable case erectors and sealers, often for difficult and complex applications,” commented Suraj Patel, Sales Manager for Endoline Robotics. “Adding high performance robotic palletising, and now case packing systems, is a natural progression for the company and we already have a pipeline of orders.”
Andrew Yates, Managing Director of Endoline, concludes: “With the addition of the case packing system, we can now offer turnkey systems covering each step of the end-of-line packaging process – from case erecting and loading through to sealing and palletising. I am delighted that, once again, the PPMA Total Show provides us with a platform to showcase how we are working to support the direct needs of our customers.”
