Brenton Announces New BantamPro ELSP Combination System

Dec 15, 2010

Brenton announced today its new BantamPro ELSP combination system which provides customers with a flexible alternative to upgrade their manual low speed hand packing and palletizing operations. The BantamPro ELSP occupies similar floor space on the packaging line as manual operations and less floor space compared to disparate supplier pieces of equipment integrated in the customer's facility.

The BantamPro ELSP combination system accommodates RSC cases and automatically performs multiple packaging operations, including case erecting, loading, sealing, and palletizing sections within its compact footprint. Additional equipment integration, such as a labeler, semi-automatic pallet magazine and stretch wrapper, is available. The robotic loading pick-and-place module features interchangeable robot modules depending on desired cycle rates and payload capacities. The BantamPro ELSP is capable of 10 cpm or 20 picks per minute and product payloads up to 20 lbs. per pick. By replacing the gantry with a 2 axis delta robot, capacities jump to 50 picks per minute and over 50 lbs. The gantry palletizer vacuum picks single cases and operates with a 4 axis servo placement, X, Y, Z and rotation. All sections of the system are operated through just one controller and one HMI. Advanced servo technology minimizes the machine's electrical cabinet requirements. A single continuous welded frame is standard for a long service life, and the entire machine is backed by the same warranty package offered on higher speed Brenton case packers.

"The new combination system is a good solution for contract packers, specialty product makers, limited time offers and new product launches," said Troy Snader, Brenton Vice President of Sales. "It's ideal for anyone facing the dilemma of adding to their labor expense or investing capital in more throughput than they really need. The BantamPro ELSP integrates previously separate machine functions for a compact, all-in-one and low cost packaging solution."
