Bosch Packaging Technology has enhanced its Presto D3 toploading collator for improved productivity and ease of use.
The new Presto D3 machine range is said to be equipped with jam prevention and others for non-stop operation.
It is also claimed to have improved versatility for fast and tool-less format change.
Bosch says that the machine range has been designed for picking, placing and collating a broad range of food and non-food wrapped products.
On the other hand, its robotic platform which has been upgraded helps manufacturers achieve the highest flexibility owing to its modular design.
According to Bosch, the Presto D3 machine range which comes with different configurations has been designed to address the growing need of customers for increased productivity and flexibility. The toploading collator range is also said to be adaptable to various factory and production layouts.
Bosch Packaging Technology robotic portfolio sales director Marc de Vries said: “The new jam-prevention feature on our proven Presto platform is designed to improve the ease of machine operation and at the same time, increase the uptime and efficiency of this type of machine.
“With this customer-focused technology, we underline our commitment to helping enhance their efficiencies and reducing their TCO.”
Due to the easy integration with upstream and downstream packaging equipment requirements, the solution comes with one or two infeed conveyors, stated Bosch. This, it says enables the products to be picked up, grouped and placed flat or on edge into cartons or the infeed chain of a sideload cartoner directly.
The modular design of Presto D3 toploading collator facilitates handling of multiple product and carton types and sizes on the same machine as per its manufacturer.
Operators without having to use actual products can design simulations of new formats by using the Human Machine Interface (HMI) and Gemini 4.0 controller of the machine and thus saving on production time.
