    Digitalisation: from design to operation creates best-in-class solutions

    From initial design, through simulation and testing and onto optimum in-field operation, Cama Group’s new machines will help deliver better, faster, more focussed packaging solutions, while enabling customers to increase throughput, shorten time to market, slash downtime and quickly and easily undertake format changes.

    At IPACKIMA (Hall 5p – Stand B10) we will illustrate these capabilities with a delta-robot-equipped loading unit, running – in real time – alongside its own digital twin. This will highlight how product flows can be simulated and then integrated into other upstream machines, also running in a virtual environment.

    Cama Group: vision for biscuit packaging

    Thanks to its Delta Robots with artificial vision, Cama recently installed a complete system for handling flowpacked biscuits either in trays or in piles. The different formats are first loaded into a preglued carton by a high speed continuous motion cartoner, and then the products are top loaded into shipping cases. Versatility, easy change over and reliability are the key words of this Cama installation.

    Monoblock loading system

    The system was designed to handle multiple different product formats. Biscuits of different dimensions are delivered to the Cama Robotic loading unit on a flat conveyor. Up to 500 biscuits a minute arrive in flowpacked piles of 3 units or in flowpacked trays.
