Edson has unveiled a new robotic top-load case packer aimed at small to midsized companies that manufacture a variety of SKUs within the away-from-home towel and tissue industry.
Edson’s new 4000TL-Robotic will be debuting the new 4000TL-Robotic on March 16-18 in booth D10 at Tissue World Miami.
The 4000TL-Robotic is a cost-effective machine that uses a Fanuc M-710iC/50 FP robot to provide a flexible top-load case packer with different end-of-arm tool options to efficiently handle specific applications.
The machine can handle a wide range of products in a variety of pack patterns, primarily HSC cases up to 12 picks per minute.
The 4000TL-Robotic is a great solution for contract packers and specialty product makers of rolled tissue, away-from-home, facial tissue, hand towels, folded napkins, diapers and incontinence products, feminine care and other related paper products.
The 4000TL-Robotic comes with a 10” Allen-Bradley color touch screen HMI for simple operator-friendly interface.
It achieves changeovers in less than 15 minutes to minimize downtime, and sturdy tube framing with automotive finishing to ensure the 4000TL-Robotic provides a long service life.
An optional auto-adjust end-of-arm tool is also available, further minimizing changeover times. The robotic arm will also automatically adjust to the correct end-of-arm tool dependent on the application and product if there are multiple options.
Another advantage the 4000TL-Robotic brings to customers is a compact footprint, occupying a similar floor space as hand-pack operations. The machine is also designed to be easily integrated into packaging lines with other end-of-line equipment.
