The primary function of these cells is to bulk pack scoops for infant formula produced on injection moulding machines.
The moulding machine’s incorporate a gantry 3 axis robot to pick product ejected from the tool and present to the hopper above the bagging system. Product is packed into 70 micron bags picked and presented from the bag drawer, the bags are heat sealed and the machine has the ability to take a representative sample of product packed by sealing a single shot/cycle worth of product into a secondary pocket above the bag seal of the packed production, the sealed bag then drops onto the outfeed conveyor.
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.
