Systems for F401 boxes and similar

learn more

This system configuration was designed for the packaging of products in Fefco 0401* or equivalent boxes, characterised by an external upper central closure and the presence of side flaps on the front and back which close toward the outside.

Because of the type of boxes it has to process, it is usually characterised by 2 modules in particular, which allow the perfect forming and closing of the packages. The need for these products to usually be stacked on top of each other when being packed is automated with the help of a manipulator Robot that positions all the products on the open box.

We are able to respond to customer needs by offering modular stand-alone machines, semi-automatic systems and complete systems custom-designed according to specific packaging requirements.

Work phases

Product preparation

Area in which loose products (not yet boxed) are prepared by an operator. In this area, product protections may be inserted by hand if required.

Measuring

Area in which products are measured automatically or by hand in order to indicate the dimensions of the box to be produced to the packaging machine.

Box procurement

Area dedicated to the production of customised boxes with a Panotec packaging machine.

If the production process requires large batches, the boxes can be supplied by a box manufacturer and stored on pallets/racks next to the coupling station run by the operator.

Box forming

Area in which the automatic box bottom forming modules are located, mainly for F410, F401 model boxes or bottom and lids. An operator must form the box manually if this area is not automated.

Box-product coupling

Area where the product is manually inserted by the operator into the box, which has been pre-formed previously by the forming module.

If you want to automate this process, you must provide for a robot that picks up the product and releases it over the open (non-preformed) box.

Box closing

Area in which the boxes are closed with the product. It is possible to use the automatic closing module using Hot Melt glue or using adhesive tape.

Labelling

Area in which the pack is automatically labelled. Various labelling options are available: On the side, on the lid, at 90°, etc. It is also possible to have the label applied by hand by an operator.

Palletisation

This is normally the last station that makes up a system; it can achieve a high level of automation thanks to the presence of robots and can handle numerous pack unloading bays.
