Cement have to reach distributors and customers in perfect condition. BEUMER Group offers an extensive, modular range of products and is the only supplier to provide complete packaging lines from a single source – from filling and palletising to transport packaging of the pallet.
For the efficient filling of paper bags with cement, the system provider offers the BEUMER fillpac R. These systems function reliably, carefully and sustainably while meeting the required throughput and are equipped with a special weighing unit as well. Depending on the requirements and on the material characteristics such as bulk density, grain size, material density or flow behaviour, BEUMER Group can offer both air and impeller filling machines from the construction series BEUMER fillpac R. The air filling machines are suitable for bagging pourable and coarse-grained products with particle sizes up to ten millimetres, whereas the impeller technology is suited for free flowing and fine-grained products like cement or gypsum. Adding the BEUMER bag placer and a ream magazine to the system makes the filling even more efficient.
Proper and stable stacks on pallets
The filled bags, which are made of different materials like paper, PE or PP and have different sizes, weights and designs (flat valve bags or valve bottom bags), have to be stacked on pallets in a stable and precise way. For this, BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER paletpac. It can be quickly assembled thanks to its modular design, is easily accessible for maintenance, can be operated intuitively and flexibly adapted to different packing patterns. Depending on the product requirements, the BEUMER paletpac can be equipped with a clamp-type or twin-belt turning device which positions the bags smoothly, quickly and exactly. For palletising cartons, boxes, canisters or trays, BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER robotpac. This space-saving, fully automatic articulated robot solves complex palletising and de-palletising challenges reliably and efficiently. The user receives gripping systems suitable for all types of packaged goods, which can be easily exchanged.
Depending on the requirements, the palletised products must stand securely on the loading space during transport or, for example, be protected against dust, rain or other atmospheric influences for outdoor storage. For this, BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER stretch hood high-capacity packaging system, which places a stretchable film on the palletised stack. This solution can be operated easily, intuitively and safely. Furthermore, the system provider equips all systems of a line with the same Human Machine Interface (HMI). This operator panel provides users with an easily understandable and intuitive interaction concept, enabling them to define efficient working sequences.
Software based on modular design
For best results and to ensure full material and data tracking, the filling, palletising and packaging components as well as other system components must be perfectly matched. For this, BEUMER Group has developed the modular BG Software Suite as superior data processing system. It can be adapted individually to the particular tasks. Products from other companies can be easily integrated. Users can extend this solution at any time and optimise their material flows. The cross-program user interface BG Fusion shows process data and reports. All available data can be accessed – without having to switch between different applications.
With the BEUMER Group warehouse control system the BG Software Suite can be easily connected to the warehouse management system or the customer's ERP solution. This way, BEUMER Group ensures the communication between the different control levels for the user. As a single-source provider, BEUMER Group can create an intelligent connection between the individual systems, and integrate them into existing process systems of the customer.
