Case opening systems

Manual effort eliminated

These systems are flexibly designed to include the degree of automation appropriate to the individual application. Standard packages (typically telescopic or one-piece C48 cartons) are loaded onto feed conveyors and the outer carton removed. If kraft paper is present this is removed and the tobacco visually inspected before the package is inverted. The remaining carton is removed, and kraft paper or polythene lining is also removed. The cartons are flattened and stacked automatically, and the tobacco bale is conveyed onwards into the process. Full use is made of the latest robotic handling and automation techniques.

Handling

Conveying and feeding equipment
Selection and specification of tobacco process conveyors requires intimate knowledge of the product characteristics at the different stages and locations within the process, and also the limitations and requirements of the associated process machinery. In many instances the performance of a process machine can be affected by the configuration of the conveyors feeding it. Garbuio has this knowledge of the process and the product, and is therefore able to propose and supply GLT and Primary lines designed for optimal processing, access, cleaning and maintenance, reliability and cost.

Multi function robot

A single robot, assisted by one single operator, will handle up to 70-75 c/h max, meaning one robot unit is sufficient for both Burley and Virginia lines. The robot capacity means that it is suitable for C48 cartons with 200 kg and has a robot action range of 3500mm - 2300mm. In addition to this the compressed air pressure is set at 6 bar. The clamping unit is made from welded and painted carbon steel sheet. The clamping unit carries the primary and secondary clamping systems which are both pneumatically activated. The secondary clamping unit brackets are fitted with pins that are designed to penetrate the carton side walls.
