Our tobacco packing customer was looking for a solution to help accommodate their high-volume packing line requirements.
The Sewtec palletiser.
Sewtec already had a fast, compact and flexible robotic palletiser which was assisting customers with a similar requirement, in other industries including pharmaceuticals, medical device, cosmetics and personal care, confectionary and FMCG.
In place of the stand-alone pallet configuration software common to the industry, which sees additional programming required in the control system, the Sewtec palletiser features built-in software to input dimensions directly to the machine to automate format adjustment, which speeds up the change-over process to a matter of minutes.
In operation, the flexible design enables two pallets for loading in quick succession, or else, simultaneously from multiple lines. For applications where a layer card is required, this is accessed from a second pallet for automatic placement during pallet loading.
The Sewtec Palletiser is a robust, hygienic construction, with the ability to case weights of up to 30 kilos, at speeds of 10 cases per minute.
