Bundling

Bundle-Aggregation-Station-350x240

Single layer

  • – Bundle aggregation station
  • – Takes a full picture of the complete layer
  • – Applies the parent label
  • – Verifies the parent label
  • – Reject in case of errors

 

Several layers or unreadable plastic wrap
1. Sentinel station
: to read each single inbound pack
2. Row reading
: to read each line of the inbound pack
3. Bundle aggregation station
: to label the bundle and reject in case of errors

 

Sentinel Station

The Last Code Reading Concept: When full image of the aggregation cannot be taken (multilayers, coding position, plastic wrapping, …)

  1. 1. A camera detects any item before entering in the bundler or in the case packer.
  2. 2. Non conforming or wrong codes are rejected, to prevent entering aggregation and therefore to require rejection of the full aggregated unit later on.
  3. 3. At least one code inside the aggregation phase is read
  4. 4. Intelligent reconstruction of the sequence is performed, to assure aggregation consistency even in case of jamming or machine stoppings
  5. 5. Maximum OEE is guaranteed avoiding unnecessary rejects of the aggregated units due to wrong codes.

 

Bundle Aggregation Station

Equipped with high-resolution cameras to read all the datamatrix codes inside the bundle/ wrap, these stations are usually installed at the outlet of the bundler or wrapper machines.

 

The lighting-camera system is designed to maximize the reading rate even in critical conditions such as under plastic wrap.

 

The station includes an automatic print & apply module and a control camera to verify correct label application.

 

Not conforming or not readable bundles will be automatically rejected, by a reject station positioned at the end of the station.

 

  • – High resolution Cameras and illumination system for reading all the codes within the bundle.
  • – Industrial PC 15” TS with local HMI.
  • – Panel Keyboard with emergency button, conveyor start, stop, reset.
  • – UPS
  • – Print & Apply labeller with mechanical fixing
  • – Smart Camera to verify the correct application of the aggregated label
  • – Machine base frame + Conveyor Belt structure
  • – Electrical cabinet and automation control
  • – Integrated Reject Station
  • – Advanced lighting technique to minimize plastic reflection thus maximizing reading result.
  • – Friendly interface to guide the operator in detecting the packaging problems.
