Pouch filling automation, and pouch filling machines in particular, are becoming increasingly popular with manufacturers of all sizes. Pouch filling machines help increase production efficiencies by automatically picking, opening, filling and conveying pouches on production lines. With upward trends in sectors such as sports and dietary supplements, pouch filling machines are becoming more widely adopted to help keep up with the increasing demand.

Robotics are being integrated into operations such as pouch filling as a more flexible alternative to hard automation within packaging machinery. The integration of robotics supports a flexible, on-demand approach to equipment and processes which enables manufacturers to remain agile and respond to market change.

Cobot Pouch Filling Machines

Cobots are continuing to improve in popularity amongst manufacturers due to the new automation possibilities they open up, as well as the additional flexibility provided as a result of their size and safety features. Cobots make integrating robots into ‘middle of line’ production, with another packaging machine or alongside operators, much easier as they offer automation benefits like increased throughput and consistency whilst saving space when compared to other forms of robotics.

Supporting Production Flexibility

Cobots have been designed around the end-user, with many Cobot brands coming with their own intuitive programming interface, introduced to combine functionality into one location which enables changes on the fly. Smart software has made the adoption of Cobots much more attractive, giving manufacturers full control over their systems. Progressively moving towards flexible manufacturing with the adoption of on-demand technology such as Cobots, manufacturers are becoming more capable of responding to changes in market demand without the need for huge investment in equipment and restructuring.

High Speed Dual Cobot System

The Reeco TX20 is a dual Cobot machine that deploys two UR3 Cobots, which due to their small size take up little space and are capable of working simultaneously on the same task within close proximity of each other. The UR3 Cobot offers class leading precision and speed for its size, which when paired up with another UR3 allows manufacturers to reap significant automation benefits within tight space scenarios by cutting down waiting time and maximising productivity.

The TX20’s dual Cobot approach is a proven solution. Reeco have integrated several Cobot solutions within different industries that utilise dual UR3’s, from Electronics Assembly to Bolt Fixing.

Custom Magazine for a Variety of Pouches

Reeco developed a custom magazine which enables the robotics to pick, open and present pouches to a dispensing machine. The magazine is adjustable for a variety of pouch sizes and easily altered to suit your products.

The dual Cobot application alongside the quick pouch dispensing system allows the TX20 to fill pouches with little down time, with the robots queuing one after the other in a continuous cycle.
