Represented in the United Kingdom by Aetna UK, Euroimpianti can now add a well-known Turkish producer of starch and its derivatives, to their ever-expanding base of satisfied customers.
The Turkish company has historically chosen highly technical solutions for its production and was looking to invest in a system which would provide an increases capacity and at the same time, reduce costs.
The challenging brief was to provide an automatic palletising system which could palletise both 25kg and 50kg paper sacks containing starch products, but with a variation in both bulk density and pallet size.
Working in partnership with the customer, Euroimpianti's Skilled Robot 504 was identified as the ideal palletising system to achieve their aims. The Robot is equipped with a mechanical bottom support finger tool specially designed for the sacks, and the gripper handles the sacks accurately and gently. A device on the arm acts as an indicator to measure the level of deposit as sacks and pallets have variable tolerances, which the Robot will compensate automatically through its advanced software/control system. This gripper is designed to also pick up the pallets and the slip-sheets. The palletising system has been integrated with a rotary turntable Robopac stretch wrapper and top film device to provide complete protection of the load against humidity and dust.
Euroimpianti are proud that they were chosen for their technical abilities and their professionalism and the whole system is supported by Impianti engineers, 24 hours a day, through modem or VPN connection.
Aetna say they are regularly looking at the automatic handling of most products from sacks to bags; cases to cartons; and reels of many types.
