The boxes are transported into the machine on a roller conveyor. The boxes are separated by means of pneumatically controlled stoppers and individually controlled roller conveyors.

After picking, the filling data for the boxes is sent to a ring buffer through the customer’s merchandise management system.

The barcode applied to the outside of the boxes is read by 2 barcode scanners installed opposite one another. The barcode is used to clearly identify the box and, in turn, correctly assign the volume data. 

While the picked boxes are being fed into the machine, the volume data is sent to the dosing unit. 

The required volume of packing chips is loaded into the filling chute and the dosing and filling unit moves into the filling position above the box to be filled. 

The filling process is started as soon as the box is in this position. During filling, the box vibrates to ensure that the packing chips are distributed evenly into all free spaces. 

Once the box has been filled at the dosing and filling station, the filled box is conveyed out of the machine. At the same time, the next box in the waiting position is released and fed into the machine. The box is pushed up against a pneumatically controlled stopper, centred laterally and held in position. As soon as the box is in position the filling cycle starts at the filling unit. 

Boxes that are not filled correctly or cannot be clearly assigned are automatically discarded at the ejection station and conveyed out of the machine along a separate belt.
