Which type of equipment do you need?

The RC RS and PS (case packing and palletising) lines are able to automate the boxing/packing and palletising process of different products and applications, guaranteeing the customer a single guide able to satisfy the packaging needs with quality and complete solution.

These lines are the result of R&D studies developed in Ilpra Spa combined with modern technologies and vast experience.

Optional extra that can be customised in our RS & RC models include: Grouping system, vacuum pump for vacuum, conveyor systems, full servo drive versions, stainless steel structures, automatic pallet loading.

PICK & PLACE / CASE PACKER

Pick and Place ILPRA - Inscatolatrice automatica - Fine Linea RC

The RC model is an automatic vertical case packer able to be integrated with different packaging machines. Being highly accurate it meets highest standards of productivity. It provides a quick and easy size change which is done by simply removing a simple connection of compressed air and subsequent loosening of the gripping heads without the need for tools. The possibility of adding numerous options makes it a versatile and adaptable solution. The high possibility of customization of the machine makes it suitable to operate on many types of products and sizes.

The RS model is a vertical case packer capable of being integrated with a wide range of packaging machines. The machine, made of stainless steel, guarantees high standards of precision and reliability. In contrast to the RC model which is mainly a pick & place that puts product into cases, this machine provides the automatic closure and taping module of the boxes while keeping the overall dimensions limited. The strong possibility of customization together with servo assisted handling makes this model the ideal solution in terms of quality and performance.

PALLETIZER

The PS model is a robotized double bay palletizer able to guarantee the continuity of production without giving up space, thanks to its compact layout. The gripping system is configured so that it can work on various packaging formats (boxes, baskets, bags, etc.). The handling is fully servo-assisted and ensures perfect positioning of the neck onto the pallet. The double bay allows the continuity of the working cycle, as when the first pallet is completed the processing moves to the second without disturbing the machine.

METAL DETECTOR

Metal detectors can be put to work on any production lines in any sector; from food to pharmaceutical, from personal care to pet food, companies large and small have recognised the quality of our metal detectors and count on them to safeguard their products and protect their brand.

Checking for ferrous and non-ferrous metal contaminants inside the products with an industry accuracy compliance and standards defined by BRC, our metal detectors ensure the rejection of defective parts from the production line.

The high sensitivity and advanced functions of self-checking and tracking enable the utmost reliability with a reduction in losses due to false rejects.

We offer a wide range of metal detectors with various widths of infeed conveyors to suit a variety of applications from checking for metal particles in packaged and loose foods, tray sealed products, tablets and powders and many more all whilst respecting the hygiene and safety control standards (ISO-FDA HACCP).

High quality components and materials have been used to ensure machine robustness and longevity, just as the simple design and easily removable and washable conveyors allow for quick cleaning and maintenance.

The touchscreen interface ensures quick learning and fast configuration is extremely intuitive.

CHECK-WEIGHER

A check-weigher controls the final weight of your product. It is used to reject any faulty over or under weight products. The extremely high accuracy and reliability of a check weigher allows you to respect your legal weight requirements avoiding waste and therefore, increasing productivity and pack weight accuracy.

High quality components and materials in the machine design gives sturdiness and longevity with quick and easy to removable washable plates minimising downtime. The intuitive touchscreen interface ensures quick learning and fast configuration and product change, maximising productivity.

LABELLERS

Labellers are used at the end of production lines after a product is packaged into a packaging machinery. Labelling systems combine one or more labelling heads with a tailored product handling system to provide a complete labelling solution suitable for either standalone applications or inline operation. Some benefits of labellers are:

Flexibility

Labelling allows for avoiding heavy stocks of packaging and personalized packets such as customised printed trays or top printed film. A self-adhesive labeller can be used for many different products; it has a limited footprint and can be moved between various factory production lines to work on various machinery in your factory.

Simplicity and cleanliness

Machines easy to use for any operator; no glue to heat up, easy to clean and wash.

Efficiency

Self-adhesive labellers generate limited waste. Very easy and quick “size changes” that do not require replacement of components

Productivity

Automatic application of labels at very high speed in non-stop configurations allow for higher packs per minute output.

DATA CODERS

Thermal Transfer CODING – iPrint

The thermal transfer printing process for industrial products is the ideal solution for transferring very high resolution variable data onto flexible, hard, irregular or porous surfaces. No liquid ink or printing drying processes are needed with this technology of printing process which in turn saves you space in production and time. Furthermore with this application, the appearance of graphics is preserved over a longer period of time. Data can be edited directly along the production line using a user-friendly interface which can be used to simply download data in real time reducing the margins of error. Customising and printing small batches is an easy operation. All these innovations increase supply chain flexibility and productivity.

ILPRA iPRINT, A FAST PRINTING SYSTEM

Thermal transfer technology makes the iPrint an ideal solution for overprinting variable data (dates, forward or backward number sequences, text, lists of ingredients, barcodes, two-dimensional codes, logos) on plastic film or paper. A solution which allows to print directly onto your production line, giving you the advantage of printing speed and quality.

SPEED

With iPrint you can print up to 1000 mm/s or up to 350 prints/minute for high-definition applications (up to 12 points/mm – 300 dpi) without ever stopping the production line.

SAVING

With the thermal transfer printing you can change the head without changing the plate. You can also save thermal transfer ribbon by using the ribbon saving functions on the machine.

FLEXIBILITY

iPrint has a bracketing system ready for all of our Ilpra popular machines on the market and comes in a variety of models according to the operation of the packaging machine.

SIMPLICITY

With iPrint you can print variable data in small batches or intervene on the printing parameters directly on the touchscreen, by connecting to a computer or by using a USB flash drive.
