AUTOMATION | PACKERS AND SORTING
Case packer packing nine different products into wrap around boxes. The products vary in size and style including 200g tubs 600ml cartons and 4kg tubs. Product is infeed on a conveyor and collated using a side shift mechanism.
A RML two axis hawk provides smooth product transfer into the blank.
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.
