Has your search for increased efficiency for your packing operation led you to us? If you are looking to automate your manual loading process, expand your packaging operation or replace inefficient and outdated packers, you have come to the right place. Pearson Packaging Systems is eager to support you with robotic top-load solutions to fit your specific requirements.
Since pack applications differ widely from one customer to another depending on the type of product, it's unique properties, rate of speed, pack patterns, space constraints and many more factors, a one-size-fits-all solution would not deliver the results you are looking for.
In Pearson Packaging Systems you find a reliable partner with over 65 years of experience in building packaging equipment and over 30 years of integrating robots to provide fully automated systems that streamline your packing operations and achieve maximum performance with minimal downtime. Whether you need a quote or want to explore options for your end-of-line operation, fill out a contact form, and discover what Pearson has to offer.
Robotic Technology for Reliability and Flexibility
Due to their reliability, flexibility and precision, robotics have received enormous attention in the packaging industry. And rightfully so. Over the past decade, cost for robots have come down significantly making them not only a viable alternative to traditional mechanical packers but often the preferred choice. Enhanced with advanced technologies including vision guidance and line tracking to inspect, detect, sort and manipulate products on the fly or balance the load between robots, application-specific end-of-arm tools and automatic changeover, Pearson’s case packers effectively support your desire for optimal efficiency in your packaging operation.
Robotic Top Load Case Packers Optimized to Your Specific Needs
Individual products and facilities come with their own sets of specifications and challenges. We work with our customers to provide sustainable, long-lasting solutions for their unique businesses and specific applications. We have extensive experience using various types of robots, employing a wide variety of product handling, transfer and loading techniques, meeting stringent environmental requirements, and integrating numerous product conveying technologies and third party OEM equipment. This enables us to select the best options for your particular needs and provide a comprehensive automated solution.
In addition to our long-term experience building and deploying automatic packing solutions, we employ various simulation and visualization tools to account for potential variables and validate concepts.
Cut Costs With Automated Case Packers
Automatic case packers, just like any form of automation, reduce your labor cost including wages, recruitment, training and possible injuries, and increase your throughput rate and quality output.
The use of robotics in our top loaders offers the additional benefit of high reliability and uptime with a Meantime Between Failure (MBF) ranging between 80,000-120,000 hrs as reported by FANUC Robotics. Robots are also highly flexible in that they can easily accommodate multiple products, sizes or pack patterns without changeover or if necessary automatic changeover. Robotic arms can offer articulation that mimics the motion of hand movements gently maneuvering a product into a case. In addition, robots are easily redeployable if your packing requirements change.
Pearson further optimizes its packaging machines with the industry’s most advanced human-machine interface (HMI) that replicates a website experience and thus helps operators and technicians to intuitively learn the machine and independently troubleshoot when necessary. This reduces your training cost and positively affects uptime. All of our robotic top loaders are also equipped with remote access capability to enable fast and efficient service support without the cost of in-person visits.
What are you packing?
- Packaged fresh or frozen food
- Flexible bags or irregular shaped products
- Retail-ready stand-up pouches
- Flow-wrapped packages or bags
- Packets or sachets
- Single-serving cups or tubs
- Filled bottles and jugs
- Chipboard cartons
- RSC or HSC corrugated cases
- Chipboard cartons
- Bliss boxes or Trays
- Distribution and warehouse totes
Yes? Then Let's Talk!
In the world of case packing, you have two main container options – putting your product into pre-built cases such as RSC, HSC, Bliss or Tray boxes that come as knockdowns with a manufacturer’s seam from your corrugate supplier or a corrugated blank sheet that is formed around your product, also called a wraparound.
Pearson Case Packers are optimized solutions for packaged products that go into pre-built, top-loaded containers.
With such focus comes concentrated experience with thousands of such case packing projects under our belt and deep expertise around overcoming the challenges of creating suitable pack patterns of often randomly oriented products, reliably picking the frequently challenging flexible or slick materials and uniquely shaped forms and placing those products at the expected rate, without damage to either case or product. Advancing from the earlier years of mechanical, gantry-style top-loading, Pearson is now also fully committed to the myriad of benefits robots provide and exclusively offers robotic packing solutions.
