New RCL-4x/6x Robotic Carton Loader

Overview

Designed for maximum flexibility, performance and reliability, the ADCO RCL-4x (4-axis) and RCL-6x (6-axis) robotic carton loaders are ideal for the most demanding production environments. The RCL family of robotic carton loaders feature end-of-arm tool designs that are based on ADCO’s decades of complex product handling and carton loading experience and can be configured to handle many types of products at rates up to 700 products per minute. Available in single or multiple robot configurations, ADCO’s RCL carton loaders provide packagers with unparalleled speed, adaptability and investment protection. Both, the RCL-4x and the RCL-6x feature stainless steel construction and are available in either standard or food grade configurations.
