      Pack infeed
      • The packs are fed into the grouping module on one or more lanes.
      • The gripper head is lowered onto the packs and picks them up individually or in groups – depending on the layer pattern that has been defined.
      • The guide unit of the gripper head makes it possible to precisely position the packs in the x and y-direction and, in the c-axis, to use turning movements to make adjustments to suit the layer pattern.
