The Customer came to RML looking for a solution to pack 10kg and 20kg bags of milk.
Due to the requirement to erect and fill into the existing box design (which is a non standard box), a specialised case packing solution was required. The blanks are manually loaded into a magazine, a case is picked off the front of the magazine by a 6 axis robot and fed into the case packer. An open case is erected and moved to one of the two packing stations. One is used when running the 20kg bag and both stations are used for the 10kg bags.
The two packers that are used for the dessert products have the added complexity of an integrated elevator to lift the packs from the forming level to a height which suits the palletiser infeed and provides clearance for a pedestrian walkway.
These machines are running at their maximum output speeds and have performed exceptionally well, requiring only routine maintenance in the form of a weekly service. The elevator system is very reliable and requires little maintenance to keep it performing as it should.
Of all of the types of packers that we have on site (past and present) the RML packers have proven to be one of the most reliable, and easiest to maintain.
Their open and honest approach and their willingness to work close with the MilkTestNZ team has resulted in very positive outcomes for us.
The design process went very smoothly with regular reviews and we were fully engaged throughout by RML’s engineering and design team.
Our start up and commissioning went somewhat better than we had anticipated and we have been pleased with RML’s performance and the performance of our new packing line.
In general, we have found the RML team to be professional, proactive and very responsive to questions and quick to resolve any problems for us.
The RML team took the time to understand the requirements for the overall plant and supported areas outside their scope to ensure the overall project was a success.
We look forward to working with the RML team again in the future.
