ACP-641 packs pillow bags into cartons up to 60 bags per minute. The changeover completes within just 3 minutes with a simple 3 steps.

The machine length has been shortened by 900mm compared with the conventional case packer model by packing the bag directly into the case with the robotic arm. The vision sensor at bag entrance detects the position and angle of bags so that the arm picks and packs bag while correcting its angle so there is no need for a guide to align bags, which also enables to reduce machine length.
Automation of case packing process can reduce number of operators who manually pack bags into cartons. The system is effective to prevent the occurrence of contamination of foreign objects and miscounting of the number of bags that a critical issue in hand packing, which leads to quality improvement.
