The ILLIG RDM 73K type inline thermoformer installed this spring has got an interesting auxiliary equipment received in this August. The German ILLIG has made in cooperation a robotic cartoning/endpacking machine, which has been successfully installed these days. As in many places, the automatization is playing a key role also for our customers. This case packer follows easily the thermoformer running with speed of even 50 cycle/min and equipped for instance with a 30-up D75 cup tool, and it is able to fill a normal sized carton box with ca. 1.000-1.200 pcs of cups in stacks. The machine is able to handle both round and rectangular products. The changeover time of the tool set of the endpacker is much shorter as of the thermoformer set up with a new lightweight tool, which is ca. 45 minutes.
