Automatic checkweighers are used to check the weight of a product and assess its completeness.

Description:

Automatic checkweighers are used to check the weight of a product and assess its completeness.

Features and advantages:

  • Process control
  • Compliance certification requirements
  • Product savings by eliminating overweighing
  • Possibility to work on medium-weight (E-weights) systems
  • Thanks to the special design, changing the transport height is no problem
  • Automated reports provide production transparency and quality control for every piece produced – memory for 200 products
  • Product safety guaranteed by differentiated statistical analysis of total, accepted and rejected production
  • The scale is designed for extension of its functions
  • The design of the scale ensures highest stability and weighing accuracy

SL4 traysealer

The SL4 traysealer makes it possible to seal trays with containers filled with mushrooms with film on the top.

Description:

The SL4 traysealer makes it possible to seal trays with containers filled with mushrooms with film on the top. The machine allows the topseal shrink film to be bonded to the container, preventing spillage of packaged mushrooms and giving the packaging an attractive and hygienic appearance. The SL4 model is designed for customers with medium volumes of products to be packaged.

The operating capacity of the SL4 unit is 15-17 cycles per minute. The technology used makes the traysealer perfectly suitable for producers of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as ready-made meals.

Purpose

  • Soft fruit
  • Processed fruit and vegetables
  • Tomatoes
  • Salads and herbs
  • Mushrooms
  • Ready-made meals
  • Dips and sauces
  • Processed meat
  • Poultry
  • Fish

Features and advantages

  • Extended use-by date of products packed in topseal with modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and vacuum packaging (MAP-V)
  • The traysealer makes it possible to achieve savings on packaging by replacing expensive lids with shrink film
  • Flexibility in terms of packaging formats
  • Reduced plastic consumption – the lid is about 13 g of plastic and the shrink film is just over 1 g – savings compared to flowpack film
  • Thanks to its intuitive and user-friendly touch screen and the quick exchange of parts, the traysealer is easy to operate
  • A clear and easy to read touch screen provides real-time information on the status, performance, and diagnostics of the unit
  • Thanks to the POWERDRIVE system, the traysealer does not require compressed air, which makes it energy efficient
  • Faster change of sealing dies (approx. 2 minutes)
  • Reduced film and packaging waste thanks to the Pack Crush Protection (PCP) and Eco-Cut protection systems
4

Labeller

A labelling kit for applying self-adhesive labels to the top, bottom and side of packages transported on a conveyor belt.

Description:

A labelling kit for applying self-adhesive labels to the top, bottom and side of packages transported on a conveyor belt. The unit is equipped with labelling heads with a colour control touch screen to manage and operate the system.

Features and advantages

  • Possibility to apply labels in different places on the packaging
  • A versatile label applicator, including film, paper and transparent labels
  • Possibility to adapt the machine to changing trends on the packaging market
  • A versatile design enables long and short production cycles
  • Easy-to-use software with a short operating instruction for each function key integrated in the touch panel
  • Easy change of label rolls thanks to the Quick Roll Changeover (QRC) system
  • Optical detection of the package edge enables precise label application in the designated spot 
  • Control – a PLC, a colour touch panel, an intuitive menu in Polish, English, Russian, and optionally other languages
5

Control machine

The control machine is an advanced production line control system based on a Siemens PLC. It makes it possible to manage the entire system from one place.

Description:

The control machine is an advanced line control system based on a Siemens PLC. It makes it  possible to manage the entire system from a single location using an operator panel (HMI) that has access to the diagnostics and status of each line component and continuously displays the production progress. The control machine displays the causes of stops, faults and errors, and is responsible for controlling, navigating and monitoring the machine workflow, thus saving the operators’ time. 

Features and advantages:

  • Product protection – prevents collisions and losses by automatically controlling the system from one location
  • Power distribution for the machinery
  • Intuitive operation of the production line from the 12″ operator panel (HMI) (line START/STOP, speed of individual conveyors, possibility to deactivate the signal from the charge sensor, additional functions programmed after consultation with the customer)
  • Logic implemented using advanced SIEMENS PLCs
  • An e-stop for all conveyors in the entire line and possibility to program E-stops for particular components of the line
  • Possibility to reprogram and program additional functions, e.g. A delayed stop, adding a stop signal from the checkweigher
  • A hygienic design, a machine suitable for use in the food industry
  • An illuminated logo with indication of the line status
