Automatic Counting and Crating System

Automatic stacking system is an automatic system used for automatic counting and crating of polyethylene (LDPE) pouches in containers (polyethylene or carton cases).
This system can be integrated into the working line with a Vertical Form-Fill-Seal (VFFS) packaging machine of any make.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Ready filled pouches come from a VFFS packing machine (1) come on the outfeed conveyor (2) and are transported to the pouch counter- collector (3).
Empty cases are fed to the horizontal conveyor (4) and stop under the counter collector (3).
The empty case is filled with set number of pouches.
After filling, the counter-collector closes the flaps, the filled case moves on the horizontal conveyor (4) and the next empty case takes its place.
Upon detection of this empty case, the flaps of the counter-collector opens and fills the next case.

 

1. VFFS Packaging machine
2. Conveyor for the filled pouches
3. Counter-collector for pouches
4. Horizontal conveyor for feeding of empty cases
5. Case / Box
