The CF-RTS features compact tray forming that can function at high speeds. The tray former utilizes a gantry robot to form trays through the female tool at high-efficiency rates. The system can run a wide variety of trays, including selflocking and glue style closures. A flat-stack ergonomic tray magazine automatically squares the tray stack before the gantry robot picks the tray for forming. Also, all-servo change over is available on the CF-RTS for under five-minute change over. A Nordson ProBlue Flex adhesive unit with SureBead glue guns ensures consistent closures. The system uses Allen Bradley ControlLogix PLC, Allen Bradley Kinetix Servo Drives, and MP Series Servo Motors.
