Cama North America is debuting its next evolution of its augmented reality (AR) tech at this year’s IBIE (International Baking Industry Exposition), to be held in Las Vegas, US, from 17-21 September.

With AR and virtualisation – creating a simulated computing environment as opposed to a physical space – proving invaluable across the design, build, commission, test and operational phases of its BreakThrough Generation (BTG) line of cartoners, case and tray packers and sleeving systems, Cama is taking it one step further for bakery producers.

The Buffalo Grove, Illinois-based specialist has developed an immersive, line side support for warranty, spares and consumables through its Augmented Machine Assistance Package.

But that’s not all. Hygienic designs, accessible machines and inhouse developed robots are just some of the unique benefits offered by Cama’s BTG range. Another big benefit is its advanced Industry 4.0 compatible tech, which delivers connectivity to enterprise systems for batch data capture, ERP and remote maintenance.

Speed, precision and repeatability

“Because the bakery and snack food market comprises a key part of our business, we’re excited to make our debut exhibit at the IBIE Show this September in Las Vegas,”​ said Billy Goodman, MD of Cama North America.

“We understand that the bakery industry demands speed, precision and repeatability, and our packaging solutions meet those demands, while still offering maximum flexibility and expert handling of delicate products.”

Cama North America – a subsidiary of Italy parent company Cama Group – serves the US and Canadian markets with secondary packaging, robotic systems and integrated packaging solutions for both food and non-food applications.

Cama’s flexible cartoning, case packing, tray packing, sleeving and robotic loading systems are designed to run multiple products and package sizes – including variety packs – with quick and easy changeover. The company provides more than just best-in-class product, priding itself on its aftermarket services, too, including tech services, programming and parts.
