Viewed under the light …

The right lighting is not only important at home, but also in the workplace. Light requirements are of course completely different than in a hospital or an office. Variety is therefore also a major consideration in packaging.

High quality LED lights in different lengths and designs mean high product variety. At the same time a high level of automation is sought for the packaging. From the pack design, enclosing installation instructions to labelling and palletising, everything should be implemented with a high level of autonomy. Tool-less adjustment of the plant to a different format should also take place fully automatically.


The lights are passed directly from the fully automated installation plant to the PKM packaging plant. A 6-axle robot on an additional seventh movable axle collects the pre-cut parts, which can be up to 2,500 mm long, directly from the pallet. The robot lays the lights as a single pack or also as a 4-pack on the prepared corrugated cardboard pre-cut parts, where it has already previously provided the installation instructions. As soon as the lights are on the pre-cut part, the latter is sucked from the bottom and then wrapped around. The carton is sealed on a short closing section using hot glue. After it has been sealed with the hot glue, a whole layer is collected and then placed in the pallet carton. Two places are provided in each case both for the pre-cut parts as well as for the pallet cartons, so that the plant can always continue working without stopping.
