Ronchi Mario Spa is a manufacturer of machines for packing liquid products, founded in 1966. It is an international leader in the packaging of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, personal care and home care products.
Tosa Group is one of the most important companies in Italy in the production of endof-line technologies. Owner of TOSA Group, MIMI and CMR, it is a fundamental point of reference for the stabilization and safety of palletized loads.
Universal-Pack Srl is a world leader in the production of vertical automatic packaging machines. Since 1965 it has been designing and manufacturing packaging machines and complete lines for primary and secondary packaging for all sectors: food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and chemical.
The Cama-Clevertech line offers a complete end-of-line packaging solution for pet-food boxes with 4 outfeed lines, and a robotic unloading and feeding system. The line receives pouches in 4 flavors, which are then conveyed by a Clevertech depalletizer on 10 lanes to the Cama feeding conveyors. The pouches are scanned by cameras that send the relevant information to Delta robots for loading using a specific software. The input speed for each flavor is 135 cartons/min, for a total of 540 pouches/min for the entire line. The products are divided into groups of 8, 12 or 24 in interlaved configuration into boxes or in groups of 4 in flow-wrap trays. Once the boxes have been filled or the trays have been packaged in flow-wraps, everything is conveyed to the wrap-around system for packaging in the shipping crate. Finally, a palletizer carries out the final operations of loading and preparing the pallets. The fully automatic Clevertech system guarantees the handling of trays and cases, including the re-entry of empty trays to the stacking station and their inspection through a vision system that detects the presence of residual products in the trays and activates the ejection function. The “custom” system, developed by Cama as a unique solution with an identical mechanical design and software architecture, is integrated with the TPM solution, ensuring minimum maintenance levels. The “Toll – less” format changeover is compliant with the TPM system and is programmed in a PLC hardware-software environment for the handling of cartons. Moreover, it is the ideal solution for the management of products’ layered configurations after the processing phase.
This system fully meets the needs of the market with multi-flavor, high-speed lines and allows changing flavors with a 50% reduction in time compared to the competitors. The flexibility, multi-packing capability and the perfect integration of the two lines offer a 30% more compact footprint than ever before.
