01.09.2010 – Sustainability and efficiency are topics which are also relevant in the packaging sector. Klingele Papierwerke is paying tribute to this - not only with appropriate packaging solutions but also by integrating corresponding upstream and downstream production processes. This will be clearly demonstrated at the SVZ stand at FachPack by means of an innovative cup tray and a specially designed assembly machine for putting such trays together using packing robots by packing machinery specialist SVZ.
Material-saving, efficient packaging processes
The new shelf-ready, automated tray for cylindrical cups is formed from a single cut. This saves up to 30 % in material in comparison with traditional tray designs. Logistics costs and distances are also positively affected, since more cuts fit onto a pallet than previously. The arrestor devices which are integrated into the base and which automatically form when the tray is assembled ensure that the cups are held firmly into place.
The assembly of the tray structure at the customer's premises is demonstrated by means of a machine designed by SVZ and Flexima Packaging Systems. Then, a compact packing robot demonstrates the automated picking of the goods and their repackaging as assorted trays. Until now, this step has normally been carried out manually.
Optimum service performance with great partners
"Cooperation with packing machinery specialist SVZ and with Flexima Packaging Systems has certainly proven its worth for Klingele" explains Dr. Jan Klingele, Managing Partner of the Klingele Group. "Even during the packaging development phase, we carry out checks to determine machining feasibility and synchronize connected processes. This means that we can offer our customers everything from a single source and - in cooperation with great partners - can provide an efficient process chain and holistic service offering."
The innovative packaging and machine concept can be seen at the SVZ stand (Stand 419 in Hall 2).
