Robotic Packaging Equipment

The technical know-how, developed by CAMA since 1988 on robots and robotized systems, is the solid basis on which CAMA can now offer a wide range of packaging task dedicated loading units equipped with 2 or 4-axis robots. These units are designed with the purpose of meeting different packaging requirements for a variety of products, such as flow-wraps, bags, thermoformed packs & cartons, in relation to the package to be loaded into RSC cases, boxes, trays, Plastic RTP crates etc.

All CAMA loading units can be combined in complete packaging lines, with different upstream and downstream packaging machines, or integrated with other machine modules for erecting, closing or lidding of different packs such as RSC cases, trays, display boxes etc.

Main technical advantages of the Cama loading units are:

Manufacturing flexibility

All CAMA models are composed of a main common frame on which various product and package handling systems are positioned. The requirements of different projects can be thus met with the possibility of converting and/or modifying the units in future to facilitate different utilisation.

24/ Seven: Cama machines are designed and build for 24-hours operation, seven days a week.


The robot is positioned on a high level frame, allowing full accessibility and vision on all four sides and satisfying all layout requirements with the minimum possible footprint;

Clean design, with the location of electrical cables and pneumatic pipes inside the frame structure, which are easily accessible by means of suitable openings;

Advanced and user friendly operator’s panel, from where all different functional parameters as well as the robot trajectory can be adjusted, modified and set.


Low product retention, thanks to the frame design of the units dust, dirt and any product debris does not remain in the system but drops on the floor for easy cleaning during production itself (essential feature for stainless steel IP65 wash-down executions).

Market implemented electronic components

Cama Group core business is the engineering and the production of complete high technology secondary packaging lines in different sectors of proven technical know-how with high-level innovative systems. The constant and consistent investment in our R&D is based on the Company assumption that it is essential, to exceed satisfy our customer needs and to be

Senzani Brevetti packaging equipment

Senzani Brevetti was founded in 1953 by Mr. Iro Senzani who started his activity by manufacturing a machine to facilitate carton and case filling.

The prototypes devised and created by him were patented, and the very name of the company reflects his founder’s ability to develop and patent new concepts and ideas.

The first vertical cartoning machine and the first case packer were thus born: these designs are still the core of Senzani’s production activity today.

Senzani offers a complete range of machines suitable for a variety of industries and applications: detergent powders, agricultural seeds, pet food, foodstuff (pasta, sweets, rice, sugar, salt), etc....

From the beginning, the company has specialized in customised solutions to meet customer requirements.

Research and innovation have also traditionally been critically important for the company, helping it achieve the highest levels of performance, reliability and extended working life.

Vertical Cartoning Machines

Senzani vertical cartoning machines are able to reach the highest production rates by handling cartons of any kind starting from the most traditional skillet carton to "flip top” and “shaker box” design for candies.

The Senzani range includes economical machines for low-to-medium output rates, without ever compromising on reliability, quality and sturdiness (always the same as in top-of-the-range machines). The range of packaged products is extremely varied: washing powders, short-cut pasta shapes, rice, sugar, salt, cereal, pet food, confectionery, chewing gum, frozen food, fertilizers, hardware etc.

Each model of machine has a size and speed range suitable for output rates ranging from 40-50 cpm up to 600 cpm.

Case Packers

The Senzani case packers are suitable for packing shapes of cartons in cases and ideally
complement our vertical cartoning machines.

Well-known and appreciated for a long time in the cigarette production industry for their reliability, these machines stand out for their ability to remain perfectly efficient even when the raw material used is not top quality cardboard.


Senzani logistic systems are the best in terms of reliability, speed and production capacity.

They make it possible to achieve a high level of automation and are equipped with latest-generation, high-tech Siemens brushless motors, for perfectly accurate timing between the bundle pushers and the conveyor belt.


With our new Senzani automatic case feeding systems, the machine operator is no longer required to take cases out of their containers and place them on the magazine...

Pick & Place

Senzani Pick & Place Carton packers in American cases, wrap-around cartons or tray, as well as its palletisers, are a pleasant innovation in the field of final packaging.

Scirocco Pocket-Bag

Pocket Bag® is the new package dedicated to the sector of cheeses and fresh products in general, which can be opened and closed thanks to the zip, folded hem or label.

The advantages of Pocket Bag ®:

Open and Close: Pocket Bag® comprises the extreme practicality of the reclosable package and the guarantee of long-term freshness of the packaged product.

The novelty of the Pocket Bag® package lies in the wrapping material, which is made up of one or more layers of film that act as a gas barrier, and may be stripped off, thereby keeping the package intact.

Less Waste: The Pocket Bag® packaging system utilises a single reel of thermo sealing film. As with normal flow-pack packages, the machine seals the packages on three sides, offering the possibility of packaging products in the "stand up" position.

These characteristics permit considerable advantages in terms of the reduction of discards, due to discards and sealing loss, lower costs thanks to the possibility of using thinner barrier materials without compromising in any way the air tightness of the seal and, lastly, lower maintenance costs thanks to the reduced temperature of the sealing crimpers.

Marketing oriented: The Pocket Bag® package may be custom printed by the client, even on the rear of the package: the service to the final consumer perfectly weds marketing and communications requirements for food products.

Pocket Bag® can be produced with the flow wrap machine PFM SCIROCCO PB and vertical machine BG VETTA.
