Box Handling

Box Handling

db automation and The PCE GROUP manufacture an array of Box Handling solutions, from standard 2 Box diverters, to multi-tiered variants, which can include part count and weigh counting functionality, to ensure your output requirements are optimised.

 

2 Box Diverter (2BD)

The 2BD is the most basic Box Handling System in the PCE range, but still boasts a number of configurable options.

With positions for 2-boxes, parts are diverted into the waiting box via one of two diverter designs; a fishtail or see-saw style diverter.  To achieve the required part count the 2BD is supplied with a counting sensor to be mounted to the infeed conveyor.  For cases where parts cannot be individually counted with a sensor, weigh counting via Mettler Toledo scales can be specified as a configurable option.

Fully portable and easily set to a range of conveyor heights.   A simple and effective way to have repeatable box counts, extend times between operator visits and reducing unproductive part handling.

Optional Extras

  • Metter Toledo Weighing Platform
  • Pneumatic agitation to optimise box capacity.

Flat Units (3BCI & FB6)

Our 3BCI, our FB6 are highly popular products within our range and are fully customisable for individual applications. 

The unit is based on belt-driven roller conveyors on the infeed, and configured in a ‘U’ design, allowing box loading and unloading from the same side.

A box transfer shifts the filled box to the outfeed conveyor, gravity as standard.  A programmable logic controller (plc) takes care of all functions, with sensors used to help manage the box positions and part count.

With the lead box full, a pneumatic pusher extends to move the full box onto a powered or gravity outfeed conveyor for collection.

A simple and cost-effective and fully portable solution for the gathering of tumble-packed components.  Scalable to process additional boxes, but a very good entry point option.

Optional Extras

 Powered outfeed conveyor.

  • Pneumatic agitation to optimise box capacity.
  • Metter Toledo Weigh Counting
  • Vision inspection part quality checking.

Multi Tiered Units (2T9 & 2T11)

Our Two-Tiered 9-box solution allows higher box capacity with a smaller factory footprint, allowing you to build upwards and not outward and significantly enhancing production space.

Our multi-tiered units are fully guarded with the standard unit has a 9-box capacity.  AS with the previous models, customised designs are available to increase the capacity or tailor to a specific application.

Boxes recirculate around the conveyor system until all are filled.  The box loading and unloading point can be configured to allow ergonomic operation.  The feed direction can also be configured for either lefthanded or righthanded feeding.

Optional Extras

  • Metter Toledo Weigh Counting
  • Vision inspection part quality checking.

Our Box Handling solutions are fully customisable to efficiently process the required number of boxes within a footprint respectful of the operating environment
