Quick and reliable product changeovers in secondary packaging
Eye-catching packaging is important for marketing. Every new concept and design is focused towards enticing consumers to purchase. In order to achieve the desired consumer attention various package form factors are employed implying complex line configurations, quick changeovers and varying lot sizes. Balluff solutions are geared towards offering flexibility to enable quick and reliable production changeovers- reducing plant downtime.
Avoid waste along the packaging lines by employing easy solutions. For example, utilizing Balluff's photoeyes with reflectors can ensure carton fill levels in the carton preparation chute or use diffuse photoeye after the carton gluing operation to ensure flaps are not propping up.
Our BIC inductive couplers guarantee contact-free signal and energy transfer. This enables fast format changes. And means maximum productivity for you.
Do you have operators watching the stack of raw materials for empty? Well, now with Balluff's magnetic cylinder switches your controls system can take note of the cylinder stroke to alert you of empty or almost empty magazines. Your controls system can ensure replenishment is time before the line runs dry.
Balluff's capacitive sensor solutions can be easily integrated into your existing controls to ensure that package inserts are in the box or not, even when the box is sealed. It is always better to error-proof your process to ensure consistency in your operation.
With so many moving parts along the line it is sometimes difficult to ensure that the box or package is delivered in time. Balluff's solution to solve the problem is to use the laser distance sensor that can measure the box distance and guide the conveying system to drive transport system for delivery at the right station.
Balluff offers a variety of solutions for linear position feedback to enable quick format change either through manual operation or automated. Balluff's magnetostrictive linear position technology or even the magnetic encoder based position feedback system are industry proven solutions. The sub-micron accuracy for position measurement is working for you to ensure your change over time is optimized.
