Packaging

Nook products and services provide fast, reliable, and highly accurate solutions with perfect combination of performance, life and cost required by packaging applications.

Performance and reliability are critical components in packaging machine technology. Nook provides customized linear motion solutions that offer a high level of safety, flexibility, and precision. Short cycle times and high productivity secure the competitive advantage.

Palletizing

Articulating robot arms are commonly used, but due to their large structural mass, they have limits to how fast they can process product into the correct position. The use of a Nook three-axis gantry can realize a significant increase in production output without damaging the product.  With the utilization of planetary gearboxes, servo motors and drives, a gantry system allows end users to modify the pallet stacking sequence without mechanical and software changes.

Advantages Include

  • Unlimited Customization
  • High Speed and Acceleration
  • Trouble-free Operation
  • Optimal Throughput
  • Maximum Precision
  • Outstanding and Accessible Technical Support
  • Premium Quality Product Portfolio
  • Easy Assembly with Extensive Accessories

Case Study

Palletizing
Box Forming

Box Forming

Nook products increase forming speeds while delivering longer cylinder life and the vertical thrust required to form trays and boxes from blank corrugated board stock This reduces changeover time between carton and/or box sizes while increased forming speeds for excellent throughput.

Carton Packing, Filling & Measuring

Carton packing applications can have special needs that are best realized with a combination of standard and customized mechanical components. The right mix of linear motion components enables filling machines the flexibility to handle a wide range of tasks with minimal changeover. Fully enclosed linear systems keep contaminants out of the mechanisms and also eliminate risk of contaminating the filling process.

Packaging machine builders require higher speed machines for packaging and carton staging system to keep up with the higher speed of the modern machines. Because of the speed and precision required, consistent position repeatability and precise positioning accuracy are crucial. 

Advantages Include

  • Low Noise and Low Maintenance
  • Long Travelling Distances
  • Speeds up to 8 m/s and acceleration up to 10 m/s²
  • Compact Design
  • Long Service Life and Excellent Reliability
  • High Load Capacity and Bearing Load
  • Low Weight
  • Unlimited Customization
  • Resistant to Difficult Environments (dust or abrasive materials)

Wrapping

Wrapping

Nook linear motion solutions provide simple, high quality systems that can be built from standard components providing long life, and virtually no maintenance. Unmatched quality, low maintenance and scalable cost are illustrated in single axis motion systems for stretch wrapping applications that require the optimal balance of performance, life and total cost.

 

Labelling & Scanning

Nook provides the accuracy, high speed and flexibility with minimal engineering effort for labeling and scanning operations. This includes gantry systems with linear guide and ball screw components utilized on conveyors with visual recognition systems that transport boxes of varying size for printing (or scanning) while in motion.
