The deep robotic programming and integrating capabilities that Brenton robotic packaging equipment offers excel in vision guided pick-and-place for high-speed packing of food, beverages, medical supplies, and other consumer products. Brenton delivers flexible, high-speed automation for the unsurpassed reliability, increased efficiency, safety, and labor savings manufacturers need -- and the small footprint and minimal environmental impact they want.

Integrated System Functionality
One of the largest providers of FANUC robotic packaging systems in North America, Brenton displays the CR-7iA/L collaborative robot with integral vision that picks trays off a conveyor, orients them, and feeds them to a BrentonPro Mach-2 side load case packer. Key features include an integrated HMI which enables the conventional case packer and robot to operate as a unified system and provides dual robotic picking speeds for maximum throughput. The vision system plugs directly into the robot controller, eliminating the need for a separate vision controller. With proven sensor technology, the CR-7iA/L is designed to work with humans in a shared workspace without safety fences in a 24/7 environment.

Delivering Optimal Performance
The FANUC CR-7iA/L is paired with the Mach-2 case packer, with a small footprint and flexible, customizable design that meets any specifications, making it one of the best-selling units Brenton offers. Utilizing indexing motion, the Mach-2 efficiently loads up to 35 cases per minute. Cases accommodated include RSC, HSC, tray, wrap-around, knock-down, and harness for cartons, bottles, cans, and tubs. Additionally, the servo-controlled Mach-2 case packer minimizes environmental impact by reducing energy consumption, product and packaging material waste.

Experience an Active Demo
“Pack Expo attendees are invited to stop by Brenton’s booth to watch this innovative
integrative collaborative robotics solution,” said Jason Enninga, vice president of sales at Brenton. “Ask our expert staff about the safety and operational features incorporated into the demo, and get answers to your questions about using fenced and unfenced robotics in different applications. We specialize in customized solutions.”

Many companies advertise FANUC integration into their robotic packaging systems, but only 4% (including Brenton) are Certified Servicing Integrators (CSI).
