The automatic labeling and eyelet machine is integrated with a small 6axis, 6axis Comau robot, which picks up the label and deposits it on the package, thanks to a sophisticated vision system. The latter detects the 3D position of the edge of the package ensuring the perfect positioning of the label on the envelope. Once the pasta package has been checked, the machine inserts the jumper on the pasta pouches and blocks them with two metal eyelets. This system allows the eyelets to be riveted with high precision and uniformity thanks to the management through an easily adjustable electronic axis.
