Packaging line engineering company Gebo Cermex, which is part of the Sidel Group, will be introducing its new performance systems at Interpack 2017 from 4-10 May.

The company will be demonstrating its portfolio based on its Agility 4.0 program.

‘Smart’ equipment is the focus at this year’s exhibition, with a comprehensive packing solution at the company’s booth.

Visitors will be given a preview of its vision of the 'Smart Machine', with a robotic/cobotic case packing solution embedding advanced and connected systems.

The machine features new motion technology, robotics and cobotics, auto adjustment and auto feeding, and is a connected machine.

Gebo Cermex says it is "no longer a case packer simply putting products in a case, but a 360° integrated approach using the latest technologies to deliver all functionalities.”

The machine will feature CareSelect, a new shaped bottle infeed system to preserve product integrity.

Using Rockwell Automation’s iTRAK technology, it can achieve speeds of up to 400 products per minute depending on package size, shape, and weight.

Another module is FlexiLoad, a robotic solution for magazine loading which is suitable for any case packing system regardless of type and speed.

FlexiLoad (pictured above) eliminates the need for time-consuming, manual corrugated board magazine feeding and the potential for operators’ musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
