"Soft Catch" Servo Case Packer

939S Versatron™

Soft Catch Servo Case Packer - Versatron

A two-axis servo system allows the Versatron Servo Case Packer to actually "catch" the product while it descends into the case. The lift table moves the case to the "up" position and waits for a full grid. When grid is full, the riding strips shift to the side and initiate the bottle descent. The lift table simultaneously moves the case downward on a velocity curve that ultimately achieves the same speed at the point of contact (the "soft catch"). See the illustration below.

Other case packing benefits include push-button height adjustment and a wide product range. The vertical motion of the table does not consume air.
