Synlait came to RML looking to redesign a capping machine with quick turnaround to meet their production requirements.
RML produced the ‘deep scoop lidder’ to meet Synlait’s needs.
The capper is capable of processing 130 cans per minute with four operators placing caps upright into the machine and a series of conveyors in-feeding the uncapped cans.
Using advanced vision systems and servo controlled side drive conveyors, the cans are oriented to the correct direction before a lid is rolled onto the can.
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.
