JLS Automation invites attendees of the PACK EXPO to see the Peregrine® robotic cartoning solution form, load and close top-load cartons.
It can be located at booth LS-6128 at PACK EXPO, Las Vegas,between September 27-29. The Peregrine offers a small footprint solution to simple packaging.
Through a combination of proprietary technologies, the Peregrine enables full carton control from forming all the way through closing, without turns or conveyors, at high speeds. The JLS TRAK™, a high-speed carton management system, combined with the Peregrine’s positive carton transport (PCT™) system, keeps the Peregrine small and compact, and eliminates the need for additional conveyors.
Once cartons are loaded, the JLS TRAK moves down the line where a vision-guided robot simultaneously closes the carton, picks it up and places it on a discharge conveyor where it is sent downstream. Unlike other cartoning systems, the Peregrine streamlines the process and eliminates the need for carton plows, tucker wheels and several additional conveyors.
