FRB 500, THE BOX/TRAY FORMING MACHINE FOR PACKAGING COSMETICS AND PHARMACEUTICALS
News, Product news
FRB 500 is an automatic intermittent-motion machine designed to form boxes and trays from a cardboard flat blank. It is particularly suitable for packaging products of the cosmetics market and those of the pharmaceutical market. The machine can be equipped with tuck-in flap or glue closing system and the product can be loaded either from the side or the top.
FRB 500 has all the key features of Marchesini’s box forming machines: a balcony-style structure, which makes access, cleaning and maintenance much easier; the area where the mechanical parts are installed and the area where the product runs are clearly separated in order to ensure greater protection against dust particles, plus size change-over operations are quick and simple.
FRB 500 can produce up to 40 boxes or trays per minute.
The pick and place unit with suction cups picks the cardboard flat blank up from a capacious magazine, equipped with independent brushless drive and minimum load controller. A system of photocells makes sure each piece is picked up. The machine can be equipped with various product, component and package integrity controllers (barcodes, pharmacodes, etc).
Once picked up, the flat blank is fed to the forming station. In the Top load version, a 3-axis robot picks up the product infed from the machine upstream from the line and places it inside the box. The robot guarantees stacking accuracy and precision, as well as utmost flexibility and rapidity in changing size. The box reaches the closing station where the packaging process is completed.
FRB 500 can be purchased with several different options. Among these is a station that applies tamperproof labels on the sides of the box and a leaflet infeed station, with presence control and code control cameras. Other items, such as pre-folded leaflets can also be infed by installing specific infeeding devices.
