Carton filling with Kinematic

Parallel kinematics:
Z-axis optimizes packing tasks

Carton filling with Kinematic: With individually-designed multifunctional grippers or vacuum cups, the kinematic picker of the TPS series (TRAPO Packing System) can pick up any products weighing up to 10kg to place them in cartons, trays or other containers.

TRAPO uses innovative high-performance kinematics for the further packaging of primary packaging. In the variant with a large radius of action, the picker has a rotationally symmetrical working space thanks to the parallel kinematic design and can reach far behind itself.

The modular system can be used as a high-speed kinematic system with up to 60 parts/minute and payload up to 10kg.

At high speed, it offers an enormous working space: optionally available with two strokes (200mm and 400mm).

Unique worldwide: Packaging with parallel kinematics

The high-performance parallel kinematics of the TPS series consist of a five-link kinematic structure, a Z-axis and a rotary module for orientation. With the help of a camera, the parallel kinematics detects the position of the parts. These are gripped or discharged in the NIO case.

Picker application for
high performance packing

TRAPO GmbH automates the packaging process: products are packaged at a consistently high speed without any loss of quality. Primary packed goods are handled gently and packed.

Fully-automatic carton erectors and other accessories complement and optimize the automated loading of cartons.

On offer: models with varying outputs, for different carton formats, with side flap spreader as well as glue-closure of the carton bottom or adhesive tape dispenser.
