High speed collation of packages can be accomplished with Nercon’s Servo Collator. The dual servo drive arrangement can take multiple lanes of packages and present an aligned group for collation.
The Servo Collator is normally located before bundlers, tray packers and shrink-wrapping equipment. This unit has been used to collate bundles of cereal, snacks and soft drinks. Depending on the required configuration, the unit can present cartons straight on, or turn the cartons 90 degrees.
The normal rate is 45 groups per minute, depending on the size of the product or package.
The servo collator can present packages or products in groups for multi-SKU case packing operations.
