What is the Collect To Box (CTB) Solution?
The Collect To Box (CTB) solution is a groundbreaking collaboration between palamides GmbH, Popp Maschinenbau and Unchained Robotics. Designed to redefine efficiency, reduce waste and enhance sustainability in the printing industry, CTB offers unparalleled advantages in postpress production processing.
The CTB technology combines cutting-edge sustainability with maximum packing efficiency, introducing a first-of-its-kind solution for the printing industry. It streamlines the packing process using a sophisticated robotic arm, automated delivery machine and carton erector with topper to efficiently pack printed materials to cartons or pallets. The key focus of CTB is the optimal utilization of space and resources, eliminating empty space between stacks, thereby reducing human intervention as well as material waste and environmental impact.
Features of CTB:
- Band Gripper System (patent pending)
- Programming & use of multiple robotic solutions
- Erecting, volume reduction & covering of individual cartons
- Delivery systems for various requirements
- Paper processing and handling
- Data handling
Advantages of CTB:
- Optimized Packaging Efficiency: CTB maximizes space utilization by placing stacks closely together, minimizing waste and reducing environmental impact.
- Scalability: The modular concept of CTB allows for scalability, making it adaptable to various production needs, from simple palletizing to highly versatile productions.
- Versatility: From 2-up to large 1-up jobs, CTB is an all-in-one system capable of handling flexible production, delivering on pallets or in boxes.
- Safety & Automation: By minimizing the need for manual intervention, CTB aims to reduce physical work required from human workers, prioritizing safety and efficiency.
- Flexibility: CTB works well with boxes, corrugated box pallets (WPC) and pallets, providing more flexibility in fitting CTB into different production workflows.
Power of Partnership
The CTB technology is based on proven products from the three partners - the robotic arm from Robotics Unchained, the carton erector and topper from Popp Maschinenbau and automated deliveries and stackers from palamides GmbH. Since its introduction, ongoing discussions with customers and partners have aimed at optimizing the CTB concept, specifications and features to cater to diverse workflows.
