Our customer produces tea bags for retail sale, and needed a system to facilitate multiple carton packaging at high speed to meet their demanding product fulfilment schedule.
A custom solution for continuous operation.
Sewtec’s engineering team was engaged to design a system that would apply secondary packaging to the highest standard, whilst working at speeds allowing for maximum product through-put. On assessing the customer’s existing system, the team were able to pin-point areas where the production process could be improved through implementing a Sewtec custom designed product buffer solution.
The system comprises of a twin-lane carton packing system for the products, capable of packing up to four different carton styles to a maximum speed of 120ppm. A custom bypass / re-feed function and custom product buffer allows for continuous operation of all upstream equipment, despite the occurrence of any downstream stoppages.
