End of Line Packaging

End of Line Packaging

It is entirely possible to have a completely automated plant on the front and back ends of a packaging line.

But for most packagers only portions of end of line packaging equipment is needed.

Almost every business that reqires packaging needs something at the end of the line (EOL) because almost all products need to be shipped, withstand travel and handling by logistics businesses.

There are a number of factors that will be part of the determination of how far a plant needs to automate.  For instance high speed is certainly an indicator of need, but there are other situations that may indicate a need, such as particularly heavy products that might preclude hand loading of a pallet or other special applications.

End of line

In all cases, db automation Ltd can offer end of line packaging solutions. (EOL)

Tube Box Palletiser Cells

Box Palletisers are fed tubed-filled trays with a lid using the built-in conveyor system. The tray is then conveyed to a a position where it is picked and placed onto a pallet.  Trays are placed into an effective pattern on the pallet, to a pre-set format, depending on tray and pallet size.

The trays are supported from underneath and are clamped to secure the tray during movement. An optional print and apply label applicator device can be deployed within this cell. This provides a solution to your end of line automation system.
