Monobloc case packers for RSC boxes

With the launch of the new range of automatic case packers with pick & place system of the ACP ERGON range, SMI got into the packaging in RSC cases (the so-called American cardboard box), thus providing customers with a valid alternative to traditional packaging solutions in wrap-around cardboard cases.



Discover the new ACP range



The choice between wrap-around and RSC boxes depends on a number of factors related to thetype of product to be packed, to commercial strategies, to logistics and distribution needs and to the speed of the production line.
Just think, for example, of the weight and shape of containers, of the palletizing patterns used, of the marketing objectives, of the budget available or of the need or not to display the package on the shelves of retail points.





Compact and ergonomic structure

The new ACP case packers feature a solid monobloc structure that combines all the machine functions: product separation, loose product insertion with top loading system, carton magazine, case sealing.

The packaging process is alternate (stop & go) through a pick & place system, capable of making RSC packs at the maximum speed of 20 packs per minute (depending on the format).

Versatility of use and product protection

ACP range can pack several types of products, such as bags and packs of pasta, rice and coffee, as well as oval containers (shampoo, liquid soap and detergents) and briks (tea, juices), simply by changing the gripper/suction cup.

Thanks to the pick & place system, the new SMI case packers are also suitable for packing very delicate and exclusive products, such as wines, sparkling wines and liqueurs, without damaging the label during processing in the machine.

Thanks to the extreme versatility of the ACP series, the products to be packed can also be stacked inside RSC cases, that are very robust and resistant (high top load).


Ease of control and advanced automation

The carton magazine is placed next to the machine, thus allowing to load the pre-folded blanks in an easy and ergonomic way.

The new SMI pick & place case packers are equipped with MotorNet System® automation and control technology based on Sercos fieldbus, that makes the plant fully compliant with Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) principles.

ACP ERGON models are available in two versions: with tape sealing (ACP S) or hot melt glue sealing (ACP G).
