Compactness and sustainability at Anuga FoodTec

 

Compact and efficient end of line for the food industry

 

At Anuga FoodTec 2022, SMI exhibited an extremely compact, efficient and environmentally sustainable end-of-line system, composed of anASW 30 T ERGON shrink wrapper with single-lane infeed and 90° product entry and of the APS 615 ERGON semi-automatic palletizer.

The solutions showcased at Anuga FoodTec pack metal containers of tomato soup in 4×3 format in tray+100 % recycled film, that are then palletized by the new “mini-pal” at the speed of 15 packs/minute.

This system has been designed for those food manufacturers who do not require high speeds, have a reduced-size plant and a limited budget, but at the same time do not want to give up the advantages offered by Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT)- compliant advanced technologies.

THE ADVANTAGES OF THE ASW SERIES

Compactness

The ASW ERGON range is the ideal solution for packing a wide range of containers with a cylindrical, oval or square/rectangular base.
Thanks to the single-lane infeed conveyor, a divider for channeling the product at the infeed is not required.
The machine occupies very little space and easily adapts to the logistic conditions of any line layout.

Ergonomics and safety

The single-lane infeed facilitates the correct channeling of loose containers on the conveyor belt.
Thanks to the rotary feeding device, the containers are moved from the single-lane conveyor to the multi-lane conveyor at the machine infeed.
The pack formation is characterized by a double belt system, that, by means of an electronic cam, separates the products according to the format to be processed.
The cardboard magazine (for P and T models), located in an easily accessible position for the operator, ensures an ergonomic, easy, fast and safe loading.

Flexibility and sustainability

Format changeover is easy and fast, as the adjustment of the guides of the different rows is not required.
The film reel unwinding is controlled by a progressive brake, which ensures optimal film tensioning.
The film splicing at the end of the reel is performed by a manual sealing bar and the cutting unit is equipped with a blade controlled by a direct-drive brushless motor, that ensures a precise cut and simplifies the maintenance.
The model showcased at the trade fair uses a100% recycled film with a 60 micron thickness, an environmentally sustainable solution for a high-quality pack.

 

THE ADVANTAGES OF THE APS 615 ERGON MODEL

Compact and ergonomic structure

The APS 615 ERGON semi-automatic palletizer is composed of a central structure in which the three Cartesian axis system, performing the pallet formation, is positioned:
– compact structure that ensures a significant space saving inside the production line
– the operator easily and safely performs all activities of installation, management and maintenance of the plant

Easy flexibility and maintenance

The gripping head is equipped with a motor for the product rotation and for placing the pack on the layer in the position required by the palletizing pattern. This allows:
-great operational flexibility
-wide possibilities of customization, in order to adapt to the needs of format changeover, product changeover and/or plant layout.
The electric panel is a separate module that is not unwired during the transport and can be immediately installed at the customer’s premises.
