Case Packing Systems CLP pick-and-place casepacker
The Case Packing Systems model CLP is a flexible, compact and simple-to-use pick-and-place casepacking machine. The system loads products into plastic crates, corrugated cases or open-top trays (with or without stacking shoulders) automatically. As product buffering does not take place the CLP is suitable to handle a large variety of different products which can be rigid, semi-rigid or flexible.
The infeed system is capable of turning or not turning products, which offers a huge variety of packing patterns and the best footprint utilisation for fixed plastic crates or open-top trays. Because the process is of a continuous motion principle, line pressure is at an absolute minimum and layers are basically formed on the run before moving to the pick-up station.
Before vacuum is applied, programmable side compactors lightly compress the product group to ensure they are inside the internal dimensions of the final outer packaging. This feature provides some benefits to be able to overlap lipped-type products and pack extremely tight internal packaging tolerances.
The pick-up head gently grasps the complete layer of products (and in most cases is not lifted), as the retracting conveyor under the product opens and the head places a complete layer of products in the case, crate or tray. Placing the products in the case only involves a downward movement, which is more like controlled gravity as the product is not lifted. The standard machine is programmable to handle single- or multiple-layer packing formats at a speed of 30 layers/min. Layer pad insertion and articulating vacuum heads are optional features.
The CLP offers fully automatic changeovers between different products and packing formats, via the touch screen (vacuum heads clip, plug and play). The Windows 10-based program makes it user friendly for operators.
Other features include a top-level diagnostic system for faults and production reporting, stainless steel fabrication and high levels of efficiency and speed.
The CLP is suitable for use with poultry meats and value-add products, fresh fish, value-added seafoods, fresh and frozen ready meals, fresh fruits and vegetables, bakery, dairy, convenience foods, dried fruit and nuts, and more. Pack formats include MAP VSP and overwrapped trays, vacuum packs, flow-wrapped packs, punnets, clam shells, tubs, inner cartons and larger flexible bags.
