Packaging and robotic automation specialist launches next-generation automated system
PACKAGING and robotic automation specialists RMGroup have announced the launch of the CTM800, a state-of-the-art mobile bagging system tailored for adaptability, speed, and efficiency. The system seamlessly integrates within three standard 40ft shipping containers, providing a complete plug-and-play solution.
The CTM800 features an ingenious two-floor structure creating optimal space utilization. On the second floor, the infeed dosing/weighing system is situated directly above the primary automated machinery, ensuring maximized productivity.
On the ground floor, the advanced form, fill and seal machine ensures precise automation in the packaging process. This is further enhanced by a cutting-edge robotic palletizer, maintaining fluidity from start to finish. Additionally, a wrapping cell located on the ground floor completes the packaging process, making the CTM800 a comprehensive turnkey solution.
The system is also known for its high-speed performance, achieving speeds of up to 18 bags per minute, depending on the product being bagged.
Commenting on the launch, Edward Rees, RMGroup’s managing director, said: ‘2007 was the year that RMGroup made the first portable bagging and robotic palletizing system – the first company in the world to pioneer this concept. As with many of the products within the mobile bagging range of machinery, they have evolved based on customer demand to bag product at source.
‘Today’s model includes a wrapping container which also applies a top sheet to protect palletized product. We have gone one step further in fixtures and fittings to provide a fully functioning ‘factory in a box’ environment to enhance the ease of maintenance, keep personnel safe, and create an ambient operating temperature to increase the life expectancy of equipment. And those looking for a system of this kind don’t need to worry about planning permission, as it can be picked up and relocated within hours.’
In addition to its cutting-edge features and efficiency, RMGroup say the CTM800 is testament to their dedication to sustainable solutions. The containers utilized in the system are not only optimized for performance, but also designed with eco-friendly principles, further reinforcing the company’s commitment to sustainable innovations. This is something that has not gone unnoticed, as RMGroup have previously been recognized with awards for their containerized mobile bag filling and palletizing solutions and their direct impact on reducing carbon footprints for their customers.
