New Loading Module Combines Vertical and Horizontal Packing Abilities in One Machine

Share Article

In response to an increased demand by retailers for retail-ready packaging, many manufacturers must adapt their packaging processes to offer flexible pack patterns and product configurations. With the launch of its HV Module designed to pack products in a vertical or horizontal pack orientation on a single production line, Pearson Packaging Systems offers a modular solution for various loading technologies.

Pearson Packaging Systems announces the launch of its new Horizontal/Vertical Module (HV) to meet the growing market demand for flexible pack patterns and product orientations on a single secondary packaging line.

As the growth of flexible packaging surpasses the industry’s overall growth rate by almost five times and the number of retailers requiring shelf-ready packaging continues to rise, high-volume manufacturers must adapt their packaging processes. While pouches, bags and other flexible containers are integral to sustainability and cost-reduction initiatives, a lack of standardization and varying requirements from different end customers mandate a high degree of flexibility.

Pearson’s HV module is specifically designed to allow for easy adjustments from traditional horizontal pack patterns to vertical, stand-up patterns often associated with shelf-ready packaging. High-speed loading capabilities of up to 180 products vertically and 300 products horizontally as well as tool-free changeovers and easy access to load cells for size adjustments maximize uptime and line output.

The HV module further features several unique characteristics. While the industry standard of simply pushing prearranged products into the shipping container can cause unstable product stacks such as pouches to shift, Pearson’s load cell system uses a three-step move/hold/release motion that consistently maintains pack patterns during the product transfer. The ability to choose from multiple loading technologies such as gantry, articulated arm and delta robots accommodates a wide variety of products including oddly-shaped or light weight ones. Additionally, multiple product and case flow configurations including in-line, 90-degree and in-line cross flow flexibly accommodate nearly any production line layout requirement.
