Conveying, Handling, Packaging & Automation
Today modern automatic plants need an optimisation of the workflow, reducing labour and occupied floor space.
Our ” Layout Design Team” is specialised in finding the suitable solution which allows to fit the production line within the required space, but still guaranteeing maximum efficiency, by reducing the line stops to the minimum.
Line control automation is programmed according to each specific product and packaging configuration, providing coordinated interaction between each system component to ensure maximum efficiency even in case of packaging several different types of products.
Automation & Control
Our production lines start from the empty container line feeding right through to package conveyors at the end of the line, and more specifically:
• Single and multilane conveyors
• Elevators and lowerators, to manipulate bottles or packages on different levels
• Loose Product lane dividing units for low and high speed lines
• Packed product dividers
• Handling & conveying of boxes, clusters and shrink wrapped products
• Dry and wet Lubrication systems
• Cable ducts systems
• Various types of buffer systems including bi-directional tables & dynamic accumulation systems ensuring the recovery of possible machine downtimes
• Management and automation systems for bottling plants
• Power distribution boards
All above features allow for safe and gentle conveyance of the products throughout the complete bottling and packaging process.
Depalletising and Palletising systems
• Low level and high level depalletising systems using both sweep off or pick & place technology
• Unscrambling systems for plastic containers
• Low level or high level layer palletisers with single or multiple infeed conveyors
• Semiautomatic Cartesian robot palletising systems with pallet on the ground for small production capacities
• Anthropomorphic Robot palletising systems offering the maximum flexibility, having up to six movement axes and therefore allowing for palletising individual or multiple boxes, up to handling the complete layer.
An important process common to most products in the food and beverage industries is packing containers into clusters, crates, shrink wrapped bundles or cartons. Specific packing machines are supplied to suit the numerous shapes and sizes of products to be packed as well as the different packaging configurations.
A few examples:
• Multiple head Pick & Place systems with carton forming and sealing with tape or hot melt glue
• Cluster packaging machines
• Shrink wrap packaging machines with or without tray (single or twin stack)
• Wrap around packers
• Combination machines for maximum flexibility (pad + film – film only – tray only, tray + film – wrap around carton)
