Packfeeder | Plastic Botlle Unscrambler
Robotic pickFeeder series | All about versatility – we are FLEXIBLE
Packfeeder is a private company, started in 2002 in Terrassa, Barcelona, a leading company in bottle unscrambling solutions with worldwide patented technologies.
Once again, the Packfeeder team manages to go one step further in the bottle unscrambling system world developing the pickFeeder series. This robotic bottle unscrambler, configurable with one, two, three or even four robots, offers a wide range of applications and possibilities. Our combination of delta robots with an intelligent track system makes the pickFeeder the most versatile automatic format change machine of the market, optimizing the performance of the intelligent systems and guaranteeing the best soft transfer in the world.
All the bottle unscrambling machines in our pickFeeder series have a great adaptability to any kind of bottle and geometry to work. Thanks to the artificial vision, picking and tracking systems developed, the equipment will adapt automatically to the changing requirements in terms of shape, colours and needs of the packaging lines. Boost your possibilities with the pickFeeder series.
Close to Zero changeover
Ideal for multi-format lines, where changeover must be fast, agile and clean, especially in small batch productions. With the pickFeeder robot bottle unscrambling series, we propose an automatic changeover to reduce the amount of downtime between production runs and forget about any kind of adjustment, setting or test before starting to produce again. This, also has a positive effect in terms of reducing the total cost of the equipment in its entire life cycle.
New formats, cost 0
With the pickFeeder robotic bottle sorting series we can incorporate the concept of marginal cost 0 for the new formats. Thanks to the technology developed, the new containers won’t need new format parts neither complex configurations, therefore, the costs will be practically non-existent and the delivery time will be immediate due to the lack of new accessories to produce and adjust. Moreover, a simple application allows the user to easily configure new formats. We facilitate the launch of new products.
Do it Yourself
Thanks to our state-of-the-art software vision and a simple application developed, the pickFeeder bottle unscrambler systems allows the customer to quickly and easily configure new formats with no need for delivery time or extra format parts, providing an effective, immediate and very cheap solution. The customers’ autonomy is maximum for the entire life cycle of the machine.
Permanent Bottle Vision
The great visibility of the bottles offered by the Packfeeder robotic bottle unscramblers throughout its process, allows simple and quick operations when required optimizing the performance of the equipment and, consequently the one of the whole production line.
Extreme container care
Thanks to our know-how in delicate applications such as using PET or PP materials, screen-printed bottles, labels or stamps, the new pickFeeder series keeps an exquisite treatment of the packaging throughout its process thanks to the use of the most advanced techniques and solutions for the handling of containers and objects.
Boosted productivity per m2
The robotic bottle unscrambler concept developed by Packfeeder optimizes the space in the packaging room, offering the maximum production speed of the market for every square meter used. The ergonomics of the machine together with its efficient design, allow to increase the throwput of the available area.
Taylor made solutions
The modularity of the pickFeeder series not only allows to choose between 1, 2, 3 or 4 robotic units, but also offers the possibility of incorporating other configurations depending of every project needs. Some of these configurable elements are pucks transportation system, orientation of asymmetric bottles, glass tray loader, bottle rinsing / cleaning systems or even coding & traceability. Everyhting designed to guarantee the best tailored solution for every customer.
The Skilled 504 is an electro mechanical robot with articulated cinematic structure type SCARA with 4 interpolated axes, and a working area of 360°. Our first SCARA robot (Selectively Compliant Assembly Robot Arm) was launched in the market in 1996 and since then it has been installed in over 1000 plants worldwide. Thanks to its high flexibility and possibility to customize the pick-up tool for illimitated range of applications (cardboard boxes, bundles, heat-shrunk trays, bags, cans, reels, etc.), the Skilled 504 has been used to solve a wide variety of end-of-the-line product handling problems in the most diverse plant logistic situations. Its friendly and powerful programming method has been developed in Visual Basic completely by our engineers on the basis of 30 years experience in the palletizing field, in order to quickly carry out any kind of personalization at any time.
Skilled 504 is ideal for palletising multiple lines:
Clever design to work also in a narrow working area
The palletiser – designed specifically for the job, this series increases throughput on palletising and handling applications. With a capacity up to 700 kg and a reach up to 3.1 m, the 4 axis M-410 parallel link robot series is ideal for handling medium to heavy payloads. FANUC was one of the first robot suppliers to develop a series specifically designed for palletising and draws on years of experience in end of line automation.
Operating within an optimised work space and benefiting from a high vertical stroke, the M-410 palletising robot is specifically designed to stack pallets up to a height of 2 metres. The integrated base and controller in the pedestal (non-pedestal version is also available) not only saves floor space but also makes transportation and installation easier.
With models capable of handling anything from 110 to 700 kg payloads, whether it be boxes, bags or slabs of concrete, there is a M-410 for every palletising job.
