The versatile and innovative solutions of Douglas' TriVex® SL and SLi are ideal for the demands of the growing retail ready market. This robotic top load case packer meets market needs for lines requiring products to be packed vertical in the case and lines requiring both vertical and flat pack product orientations. Vertical pack configurations produce retail ready display cases with 1 or 2 product facings. With a quick and simple changeover it packs pouches and flat bottom bags laying flat in the case with 2 or 3 products per layer.


The TriVex SL and SLi use a dual SCARA robotic solution uniquely combining the functionality of a product infeed, pack pattern collation and case loading functions into one mechanism. The robot is Douglas-built and controlled by a Rockwell ControlLogix platform. This platform makes adjustments easy and saves time. Its simple design allows for unparalleled machine accessibility and the compact footprint requires less hardware. The TriVex offers high payload/speed combinations of up to 25 cases per minute without gantry type components.
