Packaging in Trays, Cartons or Flowpack Bags
Biscuits, together with chocolates, are the products most susceptible to being automatically packaged using robots, thanks to their homegeneity and production conditions. Likewise, the type of packaging for this product presents its peculiarities and difficulties such as in many cases, its fragility or the crumbs that come off or in other cases, its irregularity.
Usually, the biscuits that come out of the oven by the conveyor belt can be picked up by both vacuum and mechanical grippers and in order to do so, we use high speed artifical vision Delta robots. In this group there are many types of biscuits but especially chocolate, jam, decorated or chunky ones.
|Another type of packaging for biscuits is in plastic trays or blisters, which are in turn packed in flowpack bags or directly in flowpack bags that are subsequently cartoned. The Tray denester machine allows the automatic loading of trays or blisters to a flowpack machine in a line with artificial vision robots that pick up the biscuits, either one by one or in groups and feed them horizontally or vertically into a carton.
ATP robot lines can adapt to both the width of the conveyor belt at the exit of the oven and to the production speed, at the same time that they can very easily be expanded to adapt to different production volumes. One of the main advantages of these systems is that they allow working with a very wide range of biscuit types without any mechanical change in the facilities. Once the biscuits have been bagged or cartoned, we use standard machines for case packing them either horizontally or vertically.
The most common machines for the packaging of biscuits are:
