Our disposable food service packaging automation systems are carefully designed for the automatic product handling of stacks – whether it is cups, lids or other thermoformed product – directly from the trim press. DJS Systems, Inc. offers trim press automation systems that connect to the trim press up to 4 tier. There is also the option of changeover to other tool configurations. When the trim press reaches count, the rows of product are ejected into the trim press automation system (TPA).
Stacks, which are contained and held upright throughout the entire process, are conveyed into the chambers of the Pick & Place robot. With the ability to rotate stacks to any degree, the Pick & Place sets counted stacks into the indexing infeed conveyor(s) pockets (or any other downstream equipment). The conveyor then moves stacks to the loading station, which places stacks into a vertical bagger (or any other downstream equipment).
