Tray loaders/tray packer for fully automated loading of trays

Tray loaders or tray packers are used for quick and automated loading of plastics, polystyrene or cardboard trays or boxes. A pick & place-arm is used to pick up the products with a vacuum cup. Subsequently they are put down on the transport conveyor, where they are placed into a tray or box. Products that are packed by use of a tray, could be, for example, bakery products, chocolates, fruit, vegetables, etc.
The tray packers are controlled electronically and by computers. The stability of the quantities per package is guaranteed via a servo-controlled system.
