TriVex® RL & RLi

Top Load Case & Tray Packer

The Optimum Solution for High Demand Production

Packed with performance enhancing technology, the compact TriVex® RL & RLi offer automated robotic case and tray packing solutions to accommodate the unique demands associated with handling bags, pouches, cartons, trays, tubs, cups, cans, bottles and overwrapped products. Maximized flexibility provides efficient loading of products into almost any style of pre-erected top load case or tray.

With the RLi offering the unique ability to seamlessly erect, load and seal top load cases with one compact machine, TriVex® brings a new class of performance to automatic top load case packing. Innovative design features, advanced servo technology and simple menu-driven changeovers combine to accommodate a wide variety of product types with less product handling and less maintenance. It’s the optimum solution for the high demands associated with 3-shift production, frequent format changes and high efficiencies.

TriVex® RL & RLi Case Packer Features

  • Speeds up to 25 cases per minute
  • High speed, product collating systems for bags, standup pouches, cups, bottles and more
  • Vertical and flat pack casing for high impact retail ready displays
  • Cartesian and vision guided Delta robot configurations
  • Load any type of top load case or tray
  • Quick and repeatable changeovers
  • Sanitary frame design and stainless steel washdown options

TriVex® RLi Additional Features

  • Simple integration to new or existing case erectors and sealers
  • Erects, loads and seals in one compact machine
  • Modular erector and sealer configurations
    • Tape or glue
    • Erect and load only
    • Load and seal only

Fast, repeatable changeover feature offers multiple enhancements.

Repeatability – rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to within +/- 1/32″

Flexibility – ability to place lanes where desired as opposed to centerline or fixed side adjustments and more customer options for generating product-specific recipes

Durability – infeed rail’s holding force can withstand high product pressure

Ergonomics – minimizing manual adjustments maximizes efficiency and promotes safety in the work environment

TriVex® RLi is designed to erect, load and seal cases in one compact machine. With complete integration comes less product handling, less case handling and less maintenance within its compact footprint.

The TriVex® RL & RLi perform efficiently and precisely to achieve the highest level of productivity. Automated infeeds collate products and position them for loading. Accurate case and flap control options ensure that cases are properly prepared for loading and that they smoothly enter and exit the loader. Customized options are added to match your case patterns and speeds.

Case Handling

Opposing vacuum cups drive the case open when corrugate slots interlock or the manufacturer’s glue joint tacks panels together.

Case Loading

TriVex’s multi-axis servo loader can be configured to meet your needs.

  • Vacuum
  • Mechanical grippers
  • Pattern rotate and load
  • Product spreading or shingling

Case Closing

Case flights positively square the case. Pivoting flap folders asure that flaps fold at the score line.

Tape or glue sealing is available.

Vertical Pack – Bags and pouches standing in the case

TriVex® RL & RLi vertical pack solutions are used for products that need to be upright through distribution or for retail ready display packs.

Solutions include pattern tipping, vane collation, and Delta robot feeding.

  • Product control for pillow bags to standup pouches
  • Products facing the major or minor panels of the case
  • Excellent machine accessibility
  • Simple changeover
  • Small footprint

TriVex® RL – Delta III uses parallel-axis robot technology. High speed multi-axis motions allow the Delta III loader to sense and pick moving product, often eliminating the need for special product handling on the infeed or the need to stage product before picking. The location and orientation of each product loaded into the case or tray is also programmable providing a high level of flexibility.
