Robot filling arm
The robot filling arm moves in lateral and horizontal planes to deliver a precise, repeatable filling pattern and finish. The fully automated action supports highly advanced decorations and patterns. The robot also enables filling with cold ice cream, which minimises ice crystallisation, reduces hardening time need and maximises product quality.
Dual filling stations
Two filling stations with adjustable product holders enable continuous production. Cup, tub or cone fixation is guided from four sides to ensure the right filling position. The adjustable holders enable fast changeovers between product types and sizes, with tub capacity of up to 12 units per minute. Each full container is replaced by the operator during filling of the alternate container, ensuring constant production.
Exchangeable and adjustable product holders
Product holders are easy to remove or adjust to fit multiple product sizes. Standard holders come in a range of fixed sizes corresponding to different cup or tub dimensions. Adjustable holders have flexible guide rails that can be widened or narrowed to fit the right cup or tub size. Both holder types allow easy switching between different cup, tub and family pack sizes.
Robot control system
An integrated control system stores and controls all robot motions and timings. Many filling motion profiles and timings are pre-loaded and these can be tailored by the user to fill and decorate the product in question. An easy-to-use interface enables the user to select the correct profile and also to adjust the motion profile and timings. All profiles and variations are downloadable to a USB drive.
