Robotic Partition Inserter

RPI

Pearson Packaging Systems robotic partition inserters are modular, with one, two or three robots, capable of inserting up to 55 partitions per minute. Using a pickoff carriage designed for reliable singulation and an end-of-arm tool for effective insertion, the RPI delivers high reliability in a compact footprint. Line tracking and continuous motion operations make this machine ideal for both empty and loaded cases. Advanced features such as high-visibility machine status lighting, non-contact interlocks, CAT-3 Safety Circuits, an easily accessible grace port and an auxiliary operator station are standard features.

Standard Features

Material thickness and rigidity variations are handled with the carriage vacuum design and motion of opening from opposing sides.

Fast changeovers are supported by the industry’s most advanced HMI with an uncluttered design, intuitive navigation, interactive changeover and fault-recovery guides, live sensor maps, and advanced maintenance features. Scales, pointers and quick release handles ensure additional tools are not necessary. Trained technicians can complete a changeover in under 5min.

A remote operator station enables convenient machine control on both sides of the conveyor.

Dual channel safety circuit maintains integrity of safety features in case of single component failure.

Eliminates misalignment of guard door interlocks which prevents problems common to keyed interlocks.

A standard four-light LED beacon provides high-visibility of machine status.

Grace ports provide convenient communication access and 110V convenience outlet at the outside of the machine’s electrical cabinet.

Allows Pearson’s support team on-demand access to the equipment’s PLC and HMI through a secure VPN connection via an eWON router (ISECOM STAR and ISO27001 certified) to support emergency troubleshooting and reduce on-site visits.

Popular Upgrade Options

Air-Conditioner

Air conditioning provides cooling when ambient temperature becomes too hot or the contents of the electrical enclosure generate heat that risk failure to components.

Extended Magazine

Case erector magazine extensions allow longer continuous machine operation between magazine reloads. A variety of horizontal and vertical magazine extension upgrades are available and range from 2 feet to more than 16 feet depending on the machine and available floor space.

Low Temperature Environment

Electrical enclosures located in cold and humid environments maintain better performance and longevity with the addition of this heater and drier package.

Robotic Tamper

Tightly fitted partitions benefit from being pushed below the top score line with a tamper to ensure proper top flap case closure.

Robotic Partition Inserting – RPI38

Pearson’s RPI38 Robotic Partition Inserter provides maximum reliability with two FANUC M10iA robots. The side-belt infeed and high-friction bottom belt provide exceptional case positioning and control, and a pick-off carriage supports consistent partition singulation.

Robotic Partition Inserting with Glue Application & Auto Tool Change

This RPI38 Robotic Partition Inserter accommodates multiple partition and case sizes and features extended magazines, dual robots, and hot melt adhesive application. Automatic tool change is highly accurate and keeps downtime from changeovers to a minimum. An intuitive HMI makes operation and troubleshooting simple, while remote access capability, machine status lighting, and safety redundancy comes standard.
