Jennerjahn Machine utilizes a combination of components including a hopper, elevator, bowl feeder and nest to store and orient plugs for insertion into the rolls. Automatic core plugging is achieved through integrated robotics technology.
This robot is equipped with special end of arm tooling to pick a plug from the nest and insert the plug into the end of the core. The robot returns to the nest to pick up the 2nd plug and insert it into the opposite end of the finished roll. A secondary case loading robot is used in conjunction with the first robot to plug and load the roll into a box.
