Application Description:  
Case positioning of empty bottles for preparation of filling process

A manufacturer of robotic packaging solutions needed an automated solution for positioning cartons of empty bottles on a conveyor prior to filling. The solution needed to accommodate over 18,000 different carton variations. They were looking for quick delivery with less than a week to size, order, train and install the actuator solution. Panel space for controls was already dedicated and they were looking for a device that would accept an analog signal and position without adding multiple controls and hardware.

Tolomatic Solution:
A JVL Servo Motor with Integrated Drive and Tolomatic ERD actuator were selected because they offer a complete actuation solution in a compact package, allowing the customer to save valuable space in controls panel. The JVL Servo motor with its digital I/O and analog input, allowed for easy integration into the control system.

Customer Benefit:

  • Eliminated need for additional panel space
  • Flexibility to any case size
  • Complete all-in-one actuation solution
