As the labor cost gets higher and higher, connection of upstream-downstream equipment to form a automatic production line become more and more popular in this industry.
In this solution, we provided a Cartoning Machine to connect customer’s Tube Filling Machine to form a automatic line. After the tube filling machine discharged the tube, a conveyor transferred the tubes to the Cartoning Machine, the cartoning machine equipped an automatic control magazine, the magazine has trouble floors, when the lower floor open and places the tube into the bucker convoy of the cartoning machine, the standby tube that is hold in the upper floor fall down to lower floor ready to be fed.
The combination of two or more equipment need to consider the speed synchronization of the upstream and downstream equipment, normally high speed production line need to adopts servo system, but in low speed line we adopts low-cost solution, in this line, the cartoning machine runs faster than tube filling machine, when the output of tube failed to catch up with cartoning speed, the magazine’s lower floor will stop feeding, that will results in some vacancy in cartoning machine’s bucker conveyor, but the cartoning machine can automatically controls the leaflet and carton providing by a feeding sensor, so without tube, the cartoning machine will stop transfer leaflet and carton, in this way, we integrated these two equipment in optimization without servo system.
