Syntegon Sigpack TTMD cartoner
Syntegon has expanded its secondary packaging portfolio with the Sigpack TTMD. The machine combines core technologies of the TTM platform with one or more seamlessly integrated Delta robot cells.
The machine’s camera-based vision control system detects products on the infeed belt. The delta robots pick single or multiple products arriving in random order and place them in cartons, trays or other containers according to specifications. To enable additional packaging flexibility, the topload cartoner can also simultaneously pack different products from several infeed processes. It uses the tool-less format changeover concept from the TTM platform, enabling a vertical restart after each format change.
Each cartoning machine can be equipped with one or more Delta robot cells. A camera-based vision system detects the position of the individual products on the infeed belt. The pick rate of the delta robots depends much on the product. Typically it’s between 60 and 90 products/min and can go up to as many as 120 products/min.
Following the single- or multi-pick process, the robotic arms pick the products from the belt and place them in the cartons either in a flat or on-edge position. The process is organised according to the counterflow principle: the cartons move in the opposite direction to the product. This reduces the reject rate and makes sure that each carton is filled correctly. The Delta robots can track on the infeed conveyor and the carton transport, which allows the products to be continuously loaded into the cartons.
The Sigpack TTMD consists of a TTM1 or TTM2 topload cartoner for forming and closing. It has a maximum output rate of 150 cartons/min.
Since products from several process sources can be fed into the TTMD, a selection of different products, such as small bags containing different snacks, can be packed into one carton.
