General Description

Robot Used: Mitsubishi Robot RH-1FHR series

Lid magazine

The lids are manually loaded to the magazine on correct position. The capacity of the each magazine is about 150 lids. (4x150=600 lid capacity)

The ejected lid goes to labelling unit if the labels needed. Now days the lid are produced with label. This technology calls in-mould. So you the producers of wet wipes do not have invested in label separately and use down time from labelling unit.

Labelling Unit (Avery Dennison) (Optional as per customer request)

Labelling unit is an option for the reasons mention above. In any case a labelling unit can be installed on later stages if needed.

Vacuum pads

The vacuum pads pick the lids when arrived to correct position. This position is determined by a sensor. Also a sensor connected to the vacuum pads to make sure there is a lid picked up. Also that sensor sends signals to the hot melt unit to spray glue to the lid. That system makes sure if there no lids then no glue sprayed so the glue is not wastes and there is mass around.

Products Supply

The products are supplied from flow pack machine. The lid applicator machine connected to exit of the flow pack machine. No manual transfer need.

The products on the conveyor are detected by a camera to locate the product location. The camera is identifying the symbol that you have teach. The camera identifies the products and the send signal to vacuum pads when and where to stick the glued lids. If no products the lids are not dropped on the conveyor. If the products delayed after so much time then the lids disposed to indented safe place in order not to make mass around.

Application of Glue

The glue is applied to the bottom of the lid. There are x and y axis to be glued. Area of x and y axis’s are determined from the touch screen. That enables us to glue any size of lids. It is only matter of putting right coordinates.

Setting of Glue

The amount of glued is can be set up from the air pressure of hot melt unit. Also the type of nozzle is also important. According to area the type of nozzle is determined.
