Challenge

To collate and load ostomy bags of various sizes and counts into cartons at high speed, without damaging or marking the product.

Solution

Mpac custom-engineered and installed a flexible system capable of handling both the secondary and end-of-line packaging needs.

Our LRC-400 Robotic top load cartoner was integrated with existing upstream converting equipment. Equipped with a stand-alone tray erector and three Fanuc robots, its precise movements ensured the ostomy bags were gripped gently to protect product quality during collation.

Providing case packing and palletizing in one compact unit, our LRC-700 Combined robotic system delivered the required operational efficiency for this demanding application. This multi-tasking, user-friendly unit featured a stand-alone case erector, case sealer, pallet dispenser and stretch shrink wrapper.

A number of important modular components were also built into the design to enhance overall performance. An accessory bag feeding system dispensed the bagged kits of varying sizes and shapes, while various controls were also put in place to support high quality standards, including three literature feeders with integrated product verification, lot tracking software and validation systems.
