TLM sub-machines are constructed from the system components. The term "sub-machines" is new in engineering. It refers to self-contained fully functional machines which contain one function of a complex packaging machine. Here you will find an overview of the ready-to-use sub-machines offered today.

The TLM Box Erector

Has a swivelling blank magazine which is mounted to the front side of the machine instead of the otherwise standard safety doors. The actual magazine is an interchangeable part, meaning a size-dependent tool.

The box blanks are removed from the magazine using a TLM-F3 robot. The TLM-F2 robot guides the blanks over gluing nozzles and effects the erection process. The maximum erection output is 120 boxes.

The TLM Grouping Machine

Assumes the job of picking up products which are fed on a continuously running conveyor belt as controlled by the Vision System and arranging them into product groups. It is equipped for this with two TLM-F4 robots which carry individual filling tools. According to the application, products can also be placed directly into a packaging box. The output of the two TLM-F4 robots is approx. 200 transfer cycles per minute.

The TLM Loading Machine

Equipped with TLM-F2 robots which each carry an individual loading tool and remove product groups either from a TLM transmodule or a TLM grouping chain and place them into packaging boxes or a plastic tray. The maximum number of cycles of a TLM-F2 robot is 30 transfer cycles per minute with a tool weight of up to 30 kg.

The TLM Closing Machine

Equipped with a TLM-F2 robot which carries an individual closing tool. In case the boxes have to be closed with a separate lid, the closing machine is equipped with a swivelling magazine. The maximum lidding output is 25 cycles per minute, meaning 100 boxes per minute can be closed with the maximum equipment of four closing tools. Higher closing outputs are possible with larger closing machines.

The TLM Palletizer

Supplements the TLM sub-machine system. Why shouldn‘t finished packages be placed directly onto a shipping or storage pallet? The TLM-P4 robot unit takes the packages from the transmodules and places them on pallets. The maximum number of strokes is 15 cycles per minute. The stroke force of the P4 is 100 kg so that several packages can be gripped at the same time.
