Flexicell is a leading robotic system integrator and automation equipment manufacturer specializing in end-of-line case packing, palletizing and material handling solutions.  For either simple, single line palletizing applications or sophisticated multi-line centralized palletization projects, Flexicell has the solution.  As the exclusive Canadian distributor for Flexicell, we want to highlight some of their solutions on this newsletter.

Case Packing

Flexicell's case packing systems use robots to gently pack your product into cases.  Their robotic case packers provide greater versatility than typical packing machines.  Each case packing system is custom-built to your specifications, getting you the results you need at a price your company can afford. 

  • Reduce packaging costs associated with labour, maintenance and/or inefficiency.
  • Flexibility for different products and cases of different shapes, sizes and weights.
  • Easy-to-use operation with an understandable human-machine interface (HMI).
  • Changeovers are as simple as a press of a button.
  • Low maintenance requirements and proven reliability keeps downtime to a minimum.
  • Invest in a form of packaging machinery that will serve you well into the future.

Palletizing Systems

Flexicell is a palletizer manufacturer and robotic integrator, providing automated palletizing systems.  How does robotic palletizing work?  A workspace for the robot or "cell", is built by Flexicell for handling products.  Packages of your product are transported to the cell by conveyor.  Once the packages are in the cell they are arranged to be picked.  The robot will then palletize them, moving them from the conveyor to a pre-determined pattern on the pallet.  Once the pallet it full, it is moved out of the cell to the next stage of the palletizing system, usually stretch-wrapping.  Pallet handling can be done by conveyor, transfer cart or automated guided vehicle.  Whichever pallet mover is used, the system is automated to coordinate with the robot's actions and the speed at which packages are to be palletized.  Benefits include: 

  • Reduce costs associated with labor and inefficiency.
  • Reliable palletizers that will serve you well into the future.
  • Flexibility for the handling of different shapes, sizes and weights for one or more lines.
  • Low maintenance requirements and tireless automation keeps downtime to a minimum.
  • Improve safety with a palletizing method that reduces heavy lifting, noise & repetitive motion problems.

Material Handling

All of Flexicell's systems capably handle the transfer, collating, sorting, verification and routing of product or materials during the case packing or palletizing process.  Flexicell is experienced in engineering the design and completing the installation of material handling systems to automate your production lines or enhance existing ones.  Each project is specifically designed for your particular production needs and projects may vary from simple ones to highly complex mechanized systems.
