At the French packaging exhibition Emballage 2014 (November 17 to 20 in Paris), the BEUMER Group will be presenting its extensive expertise as a full-line supplier of machinery for filling, palletizing and packaging. Visitors to the trade fair will be able to learn all about the new filling machines from the BEUMER fillpac product range, which are distinguished above all by their weighing electronics. Also on display will be the completely redesigned stretch hood system, BEUMER stretch hood A.
The BEUMER Group is a systems supplier which delivers filling, palletizing and packaging equipment from a single source. Using intelligent automation, BEUMER links individual machines and systems in an efficient manner. An example is the innovative BEUMER fillpac, which can be incorporated flexibly into existing packaging lines. The system is equipped with a calibratable electronic weighing unit which ensures that the fillpac always achieves accurate filling quantities. Special software enables the unit to communicate continuously with the filling spouts. This allows users to get the best out of their packaging lines, as it is not necessary to reject bags with incorrect weights from the process.
BEUMER also offers the robotpac, a space-saving, fully automatic articulated robot which is able to perform complex palletizing and depalletizing tasks reliably and efficiently. It stacks containers such as bags, cartons, boxes, canisters and trays safely and economically. BEUMER has developed appropriate, flexibly exchangeable gripper systems for every packaged product.
The flexible BEUMER paletpac high-performance layer palletizer stacks paper, PE and PP bags on pallets of various sizes with accuracy and stability. The intralogistics experts have completely overhauled this product. Users now benefit from improved accessibility, shorter installation time, greater flexibility and therefore lower costs. The BEUMER paletpac is equipped with a clamp or double-belt turning device depending on the product requirements. The double-belt turning device allows bags to be stacked on pallets particularly gently, quickly and accurately. BEUMER’s customer support specialists can easily retrofit existing palletizers with this solution.
The intralogistics specialists have added a new machine to the BEUMER stretch hood model range. The high-performance packaging system has been redesigned from the bottom up. During development, BEUMER analyzed various components and optimized them in terms of function, arrangement and ergonomics. A soft touch panel was added for better menu guidance and the workstations were optimized according to ergonomic principles. The new model also features an innovative film transport system which gently conveys the film to the machine.
