Syntegon Technology will be demonstrating its processing and packaging solutions at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas from September 27 to 29, 2021 at booth C-2800.

The company will focus on intelligent robotics and automation technologies. Two automated lines and a series of live presentations offer visitors insights into Syntegon’s equipment and service portfolio for the factory of the future.

The Covid-19 pandemic has further fueled the interest in automation. While Syntegon has been offering robotic solutions for decades, Syntegon offers modular and flexible automation process steps such as handling, feeding, and loading for a wide range of products. Together with transport modules, the Delta robots can be flexibly connected and seamlessly integrated into an overall system.

With the Sigpack TTMD topload cartoner with integrated Delta robots, Syntegon showcases another solution for automated secondary packaging. The TTMD is equipped with one or more Delta robot cells. It processes products from mulitple infeed sources in random order and orientation. A camera-based vision system detects the individual products on the infeed belt. Robotic arms pick the products and place them flat or on-edge in the cartons.

Additionally, the Kliklok ACE offers food manufacturers full flexibility in carton forming. Customers can choose between glue, lock-style or an innovative ultrasonic technology. Both the lock-style and ultrasonic versions are glue-free, making them a sustainable option for different carton format sizes. At PACK EXPO, visitors can experience the sustainability and efficiency benefits of the Kliklok ACE live – and take a closer look at sample trays made from paper that can replace commonly used plastic trays for cookies.
