AUTOMATED CARTON CORRECTION TECHNOLOGY
To combat ongoing labor issues and meet surging demand for consumer packaged goods (CPG) throughout the coronavirus pandemic, R.A Jones says it designed an automatic magazine loader (AML) for use with its cartoning machines. The new AML promotes cartoning line efficiency and safety by automatically pulling carton-filled cases off a conveyor and orienting them properly for loading. This process minimizes the time and interaction employees spend on the loading stage of production. The modular AML technology is a cost-effective and fast method for drawing from the benefits of automation. It is applicable to various CPG markets, including food, household goods and beyond.
