R+R were approached by a major client to design, engineer and develop a machine capable of loading fluid-filled plastic sachets into boxes. The client was searching for a completely automatic solution which offered better handling, accurate quantities and a faster output than their existing strategy of loading the boxes by hand.
The design by R+R was approved – the machine was assembled and tested at their premises in Walsall, and went into production during February 2010.
The development for the machine required a number of different considerations, including:
- Conveying of Product
- Ensuring the correct orientation of Product
- Ensuring the correct quantity of Product per Box
- Ensuring the even distribution of Product within each Box
