Sewtec has been working with one of the world's largest confectionery manufacturers for over 25 years, collaborating on multiple bespoke automation systems projects to keep our customer at the forefront of their industry.
One solution is a high-speed lidding system for plastic and tin containers which has resulted in a much-improved production process for our customer. Our team future-proofed the system design to meet the initial need for a fast, automated lidding system, also allowing for flexibility to accommodate product changes.
The solution features a custom puck system which handles product types that are difficult to de-nest, preventing unwanted downtime caused by jamming. With fast tool-free change overs, this efficient system works at speeds to accommodate 50 pieces per minute.
A second-generation of the original solution has been developed and is providing the customer with more flexibility and faster throughput.
