      • CubeMaster 200

      • side loading of flexible bags into cases with an automatic case packing system

        After its launch, the vertical only case packer CUBEMASTER 200 quickly became the standard case packer for the potato processing and frozen food industries in many different countries. Processors use it for case packing of kraft, paper and poly bags. This system is ideal for bags of frozen potato products such as retail and service food bags of French fries, as well as other heavier or more fragile products. The frame of this system is made from powder coated carbon or stainless steel.

        The packing system is a versatile solution that provides for gentle product handling, which reduces product breakage. Bags are settled with a BPA model PFE product conditioner and bag settler. This positions each bag into a side loading cassette by means of a parented servo transfer plate. This plate retracts at a high speed after positioning the bags into the cassette. A full load is transferred into a 90° tipped case which provides for a vertical pattern with the tightest case tube utilization in the industry. To meet your wash down needs as well, varying degrees are available to suit your specific environment.

         
      • CubeMaster 200i

      • side loading of flexible bags into cases with an automatic case packing system with integrated case erector

        The CUBEMASTER 200i offers you all the benefits of the CUBEMASTER 200 vertical only case packer, and is therefore also often used for processing frozen potato products and other heavier and fragile products. A major differentiator, is that the CUBEMASTER 200i is designed to optimize your floor space. Compared to the CUBEMASTER 200, it is expanded with our integrated robotic case erector. This case erector is proven to exceed the performance of a typical remote case erector. Consequently, your case erector efficiency is maximized, and with it, your overall line efficiency. As this system eliminated the need for additional conveyors or case handling equipment, the CUBEMASTER 200i offers you increased efficiency at a lower overall cost.

        The system is designed so that stacks do not have to be perfectly square, making the horizontal loading of case stacks exceptionally easy. The CUBEMASTER 200i is available with a painted carbon or stainless steel frame, in varying degrees of wash down for high caustic wash down environments. The system is fully guarded and interlocked and ensures you obtain maximum efficiency for your entire floor space.

         
      • CubeMaster 300

      • top and side loading of flexible bags with an automatic case packing system

        Looking for a high speed case packing system that can operate both vertically and horizontally? The CUBEMASTER 300 is quickly becoming the new standard for potato and frozen food processors using case packing of kraft, paper and poly bags.

        This system is based on our CUBEMASTER 300 system, and is expanded with a horizontal pack cassette. During top loading, a flat pack cassette is lowered in front of the loading mandrel. Once in position, a pre-stacked case load is gently placed into the case. Changeovers to horizontal packing are quick and simple, after which a wide range of pack patterns can be realized. Both large 6lb / 3kg food service bags and small retails bags can be processed on the same machine, offering you great flexibility with a single system.

        The CUBEMASTER 300 is available with a robust frame made from either painted carbon or stainless steel. Wash down is available in varying degrees. Is your process not yet prepared for horizontal mode? The CUBEMASTER 300 is also available as a standard vertical only packer, which you can expand with a custom designed module for future integration of a horizontal packing process.

         
      • CubeMaster 300i

      • top and side loading of flexible bags with an automatic case packing system with integrated case erector

        The CUBEMASTER 300i is similar to the CUBEMASTER 300i case packing system that operates both vertically and horizontally. The major differentiator of the CUBEMASTER 300i is the integrated BPA robotic case erector. This optimizes floor space utilization, and often eliminates the need for costly mezzanines. The case packer itself operates similar as the CUBEMASTER 300i, providing for a high throughput and the tightest case tube utilization in the global packing industry.

        The integrated robotic case erector automatically loads a predetermined number of blank cases into the system. Once this is done, the conveyor moves the stack to its pick position, making room for the operator to load another stack. This boosts efficiency, just as the fact that the stacks do not have to be perfectly square. Prior to picking the first blank case, the top four cases are automatically squared with two cylinders. All in all, this is a unique erecting method that allows for cases to be formed with either the short or long side leading.



         
      • Shaker-Compactor-Sealer (SCS)

      • Complete automation of your post-packing process with a shaking, compacting and sealing machine

        Once your BPA case packer has completed the process of packing your non-rigid product into its secondary casing, the only tasks remaining before shipment are product settling and case sealing. The new SCS by BluePrint Automation revolutionizes this post-packing process by fully automating it with a machine that compacts your product and seals your cases to achieve full transport-readiness.

        Compacting
        For non-rigid products that have not properly settled in their packaging prior to being shipped, their exposure to movements during transport causes product settling en route. As a result, empty pockets form within the cases, making them vulnerable to denting and damaging your product and corrugate. Compacting machines exercise vibratory movements to your casing while it is still within your controlled production environment. This process triggers product settling and consequently eliminates the risk of denting as the cases can now be completely filled.

        Evolution
        Compactors have traditionally relied on a combination of vibratory elements for product compacting and conveyor belts for case transportation. The new SCS is the first machine to ingeniously combine these two functions into a single element. Its patented Oval Roller vibrates to settle the product while simultaneously transporting the cases to the sealing machine to obtain your ready-to-ship result. Equipped with remarkable technology, the SCS achieves unparalleled consistent product compacting, sealing efficiency and cleanability while being smaller than traditional solutions.

        Results
        The Oval Roller integrated within the SCS owes its development to scientific research which showed that oval shapes yield the best results while transporting cases and compacting their contents at the same time. The absence of a conveyor belt creates an open design with significantly improved cleanability and a considerable reduction in maintenance needs. All modules are operated from a central backbone integrated within the frame, making these core elements easily accessible.

        During compacting, the servo-driven compression plates exercise pressure on your product to help it settle more quickly and efficiently. These floating plates apply optimal pressure to help your product settle while avoiding the risk of product damage. Changeover to different case sizes is fully automated: simply configure the dimensions of your next product container and your SCS will automatically self-adjust.

        To safeguard continuity and eliminate jams, product levels inside the cases are measured by lasers which enables the immediate rejection of any faulty cases. Once a case has reached the configured product level, the top and bottom guide belts of the sealer firmly wrap around the case to keep it square during tape or hot melt sealing and ensure a perfect shape for every single case.

          • Horizontal and vertical case loading

            The SPIDER 300 enables you to pack flexible bags into cases both vertically and horizontally. The process used by this machine is as quick as it is innovative, and offers you a great deal of flexibility and versatility. Once bags exit the bag making machine, the vision guided spider robot orientates the products in the right position.

            For horizontal packing, products are picked up by the spider robot and placed directly into the case. For vertical packing, the empty case is first tipped 90° in front of the cassette. The spider robot then places the bags into the cassette. Once a cassette is filled with products, an automated pusher pushes them into the case in a single movement. After returning the case into a horizontal position, the bags are positioned vertically into the case. Once the case is packed, a new empty case is automatically placed in the filling position.

            This seemingly simple process is an excellent result of technical ingenuity. Every aspect of the SPIDER 300 is aimed at enabling you to maximize efficiency in your case loading process.

          • WRAP AROUND

          • Less material for greater stability. This is the formula used in a wrap-around procedure. Using wrap around technology can significantly reduce the costs of packaging material.

            Wrap around cases or trays are designed to pack products into die cut packaging, which forms directly around the product. Traditional RSCs generally have a lot more free space to facilitate the loading of products. The wrap around case offers a tight product, using less material per case as well as giving better strength for palletizing and distribution. The case magazine can hold twice as many wrap around cases versus standard RSC style. On top of that, more flexibility and variation of SRPs (Shelf Ready Packaging) are possible with wrap around cases compared to RSCs.

                For non-rigid products that have not properly settled in their packaging prior to being shipped, their exposure to movements during transport causes product settling en route. As a result, empty pockets form within the cases, making them vulnerable to denting and damaging your product and corrugate. Compacting machines exercise vibratory movements to your casing while it is still within your controlled production environment. This process triggers product settling and consequently eliminates the risk of denting as the cases can now be completely filled.

                Evolution
                Compactors have traditionally relied on a combination of vibratory elements for product compacting and conveyor belts for case transportation. The new SCS is the first machine to ingeniously combine these two functions into a single element. Its patented Oval Roller vibrates to settle the product while simultaneously transporting the cases to the sealing machine to obtain your ready-to-ship result. Equipped with remarkable technology, the SCS achieves unparalleled consistent product compacting, sealing efficiency and cleanability while being smaller than traditional solutions.

                Results
                The Oval Roller integrated within the SCS owes its development to scientific research which showed that oval shapes yield the best results while transporting cases and compacting their contents at the same time. The absence of a conveyor belt creates an open design with significantly improved cleanability and a considerable reduction in maintenance needs. All modules are operated from a central backbone integrated within the frame, making these core elements easily accessible.

                During compacting, the servo-driven compression plates exercise pressure on your product to help it settle more quickly and efficiently. These floating plates apply optimal pressure to help your product settle while avoiding the risk of product damage. Changeover to different case sizes is fully automated: simply configure the dimensions of your next product container and your SCS will automatically self-adjust.

                To safeguard continuity and eliminate jams, product levels inside the cases are measured by lasers which enables the immediate rejection of any faulty cases. Once a case has reached the configured product level, the top and bottom guide belts of the sealer firmly wrap around the case to keep it square during tape or hot melt sealing and ensure a perfect shape for every single case.
            • CARTONING

            • Cartoning machines are designed to take a pre-glued carton from a magazine, open it and place it into a flighted chain.

              The product is loaded into a conveyor with pockets, which moves synchronously with the opened carton. During the transport of the carton through the machine, the product is pushed across from the pocket into the carton. After the product is loaded into the carton, the flaps are glued and closed.
