JLS - BOOTH: 2-2564

JLS's Osprey case packer’s latest feature allows for vertical pack of stand-up pouches (SUP). The Osprey robotic case packing system automatically loads stand-up pouches into cases, amongst other primary packages. With a quick install cartridge and tool change, food processors can quickly convert from flat pack orientation to vertical. This is ideal for retail-ready applications. An articulating gripper EOAT (end-of-arm-tool) picks up a flat pouch, orientates it vertically, and loads it into a unique loading cartridge. When fully loaded, the cartridge discharges the pouches vertically into the case. No vision changes are required between SKUs. It’s intended to replace typical “catcher’s mitt” type solutions or other mechanical setups.
