  • Objective:Develop a fully automated packaging machine with a small footprint

A client in the medical industry asked us to develop a machine to fold and glue flat boxes with inserts. We developed a fully automatic machine by combining the techniques of the BOX-EXT and our LAP-C platform. This machine automatically separates flat boxes, applies glue and then folds the bottom of the box.

The box is folded and glued using a hot melt adhesive step-by-step over four stations. At the fifth station, the insert is folded and placed into the box. At the sixth and final station, the box is closed and is automatically discharged onto a packing table.

The machine can process two sizes of boxes with five different inlays. These high-quality boxes require a complex folding method.

Using the LAP-C platform as a start, allows us to guarantee a small footprint. This is very important if a customer wants to use the machine in a cleanroom. The machine can quickly be adapted to fit one of each formats, thanks to quickly interchangeable parts, that can be replaced without the need for tools. The machine has a Siemens control.

The LAP-C platform is suitable for various processes. By using docking stations, we can always guarantee the accessibility of the platform.
