Functional description

Bags of nappies in various sizes arrive from the nappy machine. A Lantech Casepacker toploader CP 1000 groups and packages bags of nappies in carton cases. Subsequently, the cases are sealed using a Lantech Case Sealer CS 300.

The conveying system for the carton cases consists of roller conveyors with power rollers for the buffering of the carton cases before the palletizing cell.

A KUKA KR 180-2 PA palletizes carton cases in the desired patterns.
