Case packing is now even easier thanks to the latest launch from Proseal, the CP2 – a compact, high-speed, fully-automatic system that combines efficient power consumption with the ability to fill cases at up to 110 packs per minute.
Following the success of the Proseal CP3, unveiled in 2021, the patented CP2 further expands Proseal’s range of case packers which, together with its market-leading tray sealing machines, offers customers a complete primary and transit packing solution.
Capable of handling a wide variety of pack formats, including trays, pots, and sandwich packs, in materials such as A-PET, C-PET and board, the CP2 provides the same durability and protection as Proseal’s existing range, but in an enhanced compact footprint. This enables it to fit easily into existing packing lines and for applications where factory space is at a premium.
Fundamental to the CP2’s performance is Proseal’s verified ProMotion tray infeed system, which increases throughput by using following motion and smart buffering technology to effectively control the flow of trays. This allows them to feed continuously into the machine without stopping.
The CP2 has the flexibility to handle new pack formats including recyclable and compostable trays. Its auto tool technology ensures fast and easy changeovers, while Quick Release (QR) conveyors can be swiftly removed and replaced to speed up and simplify cleaning and maintenance.
In line with Proseal’s tray sealing machine range, the CP2 incorporates many of their innovative features. These include the ProTect user login and audit trail security systems, which provides multi-level authorisation access, and complete compatibility with the ProVision OEE and downtime analyser that delivers real-time data of machine performance.
Crate delivery and discharge conveyors can be bespoke designed to individual factory layouts, and the CP2 can be fully integrated with additional equipment such as case erectors, labellers, printers, and coders.
“We have had very positive feedback about our CP3 in terms of its high performance and reliability, but ongoing discussions with customers also indicated that many would welcome a more compact solution for applications that don’t require the high throughput that the CP3 offers,” commented Nick Severn, Senior Control Systems Engineer, Proseal UK.
“The CP2 meets these requirements while still delivering a fast and efficient case packing solution to help companies maximise throughput.”
