CEL5 Robotic Case Packer

The ESS Technologies, Inc. Model CEL5 Robotic Case Erector and Loader provides a simple and flexible solution for manufacturers looking to automate their end-of-line packaging processes. The system may be ordered as a top load case packer only that easily integrates with existing case erector equipment and loads up to ten cases per minute, or the custom end-of-arm tool (EOAT) may be designed to erect cases and seal the case bottom prior to loading at a speed of 5-6 cases per minute. The system can handle a wide range of products. The compact footprint of the robotic cell integrates easily into existing lines to automate manual packaging processes, allowing manufacturers to increase productivity and reduce injuries costs associated with repetitive motion injuries.

ESS integrates the CEL5 with off-the-shelf OEM serialization systems to create a track and trace packaging line the meets emerging pharmaceutical mandates.
