GripMe! For Synerlink's ever-more integrated lines...
The innovative system is an effective substitute for the step conveyors currently on the market.
It bridges two areas of Synerlink's expertise: high capacity cup thermoforming and complete line integration.
The "GripMe" system picks up cups as they leave the thermoforming machine and, in continuous motion, places them on the conveyor belt at the same linear speed as the conveyor. This method streamlines end-of-line operations and optimizes logistics, offering a reduced footprint and additional in-line features.
It also has the capability to batch and feed products directly from the thermoforming machine, preventing individual cups from rotating during transfer, and minimizing the ripple effect of "dirtying" the lid with the product. Capable of handling up to 30 cycles per minute, the GripMe system shortens the production line, and can reject defective cups after leaving the FFS machine.
