Case: Connection of 8 production lines to packaging zone for Douwe Egberts
The product flow must be simple and efficient for every production environment. For our client active in the production of coffee we have realized the connection of the production lines to the packaging zone. The 8 production lines of coffee are linked here to the 8 packaging machines that were moved to another zone to limit the forklift traffic (packaging material, pallet supply and disposal, …) in production. By using vertical transport, the individual packages are brought to a height of 4 meters to be transported to the box machines via our table top chain conveyors. After the box machines, a circular chain system brings the boxes to a portal robot (realized by a machine builder) where all boxes are sorted back and stacked on pallets. Here, our roller conveyors ensure the further transport of the pallets. Similar projects have also been realized for the transport (and palletisation) of frozen meals, plastic bottles, jerry cans, …
Case: Transport system that meets the far-reaching requirements
The transport of closed cardboard boxes can be done on many different types of transport systems. However, different requirements have to be met for the pharmaceutical sector. In a clean room zone, the aim is to have a transport system with an as open a structure as possible. In some areas there are additional far-reaching requirements in avoiding dead spaces, etc. For one of our customers in the Netherlands, we offered a solution through adapted transport systems.
Our roller conveyors combine a superstructure in lacquered steel sheet metal (open structure), with a tailor-made finish. For example, there are no horizontal surfaces on which dust can remain, hex bolt is used instead of Allen screws, and hollow spaces or hollow profiles were completely avoided.
With this detailed engineering, a setup has been realized to transport packaged boxes from the production environment to the palletising installation, through walls, hanging on different ceilings.
