Pearson expands case and carton loading capabilities with new two-axis delta robot
Spokane, Washington – Pearson Packaging Systems, manufacturer and integration specialist of secondary packaging automation equipment, is proud to announce the expansions of its portfolio of robotic case and carton loaders with the release of its DTL-2X, a two-axis delta top loader.
Comparable to a gantry loading mechanism in terms of function and cost, the 2-axis delta robot is smaller, potentially faster and easier to maintain. Unlike the gantry, which requires overhead clearance to accommodate the vertically-moving gantry Z axis mechanism, the 2-axis delta is well-suited for placement under mezzanines or in facilities with height limitations. In addition, PLC based kinematics motion control and minimal use of mechanical parts reduces maintenance requirements and costs for improved up time and availability.
Ideal for pick and place top loading applications, the DTL-2X offers high-speed, precision placement of up to 40 cycles per minute for a wide range of product types and case styles. Cartons, rigid, and flexible products can be loaded in horizontal or vertical pack patterns into regular or half slotted containers (RSCs or HSCs), bliss boxes, cartons or trays, making the DTL-2X an excellent solution for retail-ready packaging requirements.
Pearson’s comprehensive set of fully customizable case and carton loading capabilities includes articulated arm robots, two and three-axis delta robots, Cartesian robots and drop pack technology to provide the most suitable solution for any top-loaded application.
