The importance of the “product accompanying assembly” in a packaging machine
Ambra, which is always operational even in the presence of unstable products, was the shrink wrap machine picked by a famous manufacturing firm for its hygiene products packed in boxes with a narrow and irregular resting base.
Ambra’s “product accompanying” assembly keeps the boxes in the right position until the film has wrapped the packs.
A single packaging machine for 15 different formats
The product presented multiple difficulties such as, for instance, the difference in weight between the various formats and the fact that the containers were empty. These features required specific adjustments to allow variable cycles of between 15 and 25 packs per minute depending on the format.
Differences in texture of individual stand-up pouches
The Customer has a comprehensive range of cat and dog food that is packed in individual 150 g and 300 g portions in doypacks; obviously, the difference in the products contained inside means the doypacks have very different textures and this requires a feeding system with good tolerance capable of grouping together this type of soft pouch.
For those in search of efficiency and flexibility in very little space
This Customer expressed the need to equip AMBRA SV with a series of optionals to accommodate all the specifications of a production line with a complex layout. Ambra’s modular structure made it possible to obtain a completely tailored machine, yet reliable and tried and tested like a standard product.
Vegetables in oil, brine or vinegar, sauces
Jars of different shapes and sizes
The customer picked Giotto 90M because it guarantees perfect packs even at high production rates; indeed, the products are packed in display boxes that are placed on the shelves in the point of sale, so each pack has to be top quality to reflect the value of the brand.
Cement in paper sacks
Differences in formats and texture of the primary pack
Raffaello Multifila proved to be the winning solution; it was equipped with a dedicated system for folding the upper flap of the sacks and the adjustable pushing system solved the problem posed by the varying textures.
Product infeed designed specifically to decrease the product channelling space with respect to the line of frozen products.
The line layout demanded a cartoning machine with special characteristics, so Atlanta’s ability to customise its models while retaining the same superior quality standards was a significant factor in the Customer’s choice.
