Syntegon extends features within case packer

Syntegon is introducing extended features offering operators three levels of automation with its case packer. Syntegon’s Elematic 3001 WAH case packer now comes with Syntegon Operator Asisstance – a feature for assisted format changeovers.

Syntegon has been building case packers at Remshalden, in Germany, for 60 years. Today, its packaging experts are optimising format change processes and adding the new feature to the tried-and-tested Click system.

This helps companies working from a wide range of industries including bakery, snacks, confectionery and more to increase the level of automation in their packaging processes and make format changes more consistent, user-friendly and efficient. Operators are able to choose between different options for guided, verified or semi-automatic size changeovers.

“The new features can be used both independently and in combination with each other,” explained Bernhard Vaihinger, Strategy & Product Management Secondary Food Packaging, Syntegon.

Using the Guided Size Changeover, the HMI and message-in-place screens, operators are given step-by-step instructions. These indicate which format parts and settings need to be changed, and LEDs provide additional guidance as to where the task needs to be carried out.

If operators use Verified Size Changeover, every setting and format part are automatically checked via RFID technology. Using this setting eliminates production interruptions and downtime which can be caused by incorrect format parts.

In the Semi-Automatic Size Changeover option, Syntegon Operator Assistance ensures a particularly efficient size changeover due to intelligent drives at the format points. Operators can choose the desired format at the touch of a button on the HMI and the machine automatically moves in position in a set sequence.

“We have been developing pioneering technologies for packaging solutions for over 60 years,” added Vaihinger. “New features like the Syntegon Operator Assistance make an important contribution to this – and highlight Syntegon’s decades of technological leadership and system expertise for horizontal and vertical packaging lines.”
