Case packing of flexible pouches 27/11/2012
Changes in lifestyle and commitments to Sustainable Development have prompted multinational manufacturers to reduce the environmental impact of packaging by developing solutions for product refills in flexible pouches which are economical, eco-friendly and limit storage volumes.
Cermex has recently delivered an AN numerical-axis gantry packer to one of its customers to load refills of cosmetic products. Collated positively by a racetrack collator, the products are positioned top to tail in the packaging by rotating the gripping head 180° every alternate cycle. The arrangement of the pouches is consequently optimized while evenly distributing the weight in the case.
Latest Cermex innovation: 100% collaborative robot palletizing unit 27/11/2012
On show at the ‘Industrie’ trade fair in Paris in February and officially launched at Emballage, the first collaborative robot integrated into a combined case packing and palletizing unit has been sold to handle packets of coffee. An SW side loading case packer collates the products in batches of six or twelve and loads them into RSC. Palletizing is carried out by a PR unit which integrates risk-free 100% collaborative human/robot operation, without interrupting the flow. The operator can work safely in the robot enclosure because laser scanners continuously analyze the operator’s position in order to automatically trigger an adjustment in the robot speed.

Cermex Beijing and its customers: a win-win relationship 27/11/2012

By proposing the widest range of packaging machines on the market, Cermex meets a large variety of customer requirements in terms of speed, footprint and packaging flexibility.
Significant economic growth in Brazil 10/10/2012
Brazil’s economy has been growing steadily for several years. This is demonstrated by the number of machines sold by Cermex since the beginning of 2012, soon to be installed in the regions of Sao Paulo, Cajamar, Vinhedo and Amparo.

The machinery has been ordered by multinationals as well as key players in the Brazilian market.

Here are some examples:

Collation of flexible products by a 6-axis Delta robot 10/10/2012
Widely integrated into applications for loading products at high speed, the 6-axis parallel robot is also perfectly adapted to collating flexible products. With a recent order, Cermex has demonstrated its capacity to propose a customized collating system for each type of product.

Creating batches of non-geometric deformable bags prior to high speed loading is a delicate operation. Cermex has consequently chosen to integrate a 6-axis Delta robot specifically for product collation in this sanitary towel line. The robot manipulator grips the products in twos so as to collate them in batches of six on a first station then continues to collate a second batch on a second station while the first batch is transferred into a wrap around blank. Blank forming is automated by a WB45 wrap around case packer.
Delivery of the first two VersaFilm seamless shrink-wrappers 22/11/2011
