The French specialist manufacturer of primary and secondary packaging machines recently developed a turnkey packaging line based on a single line controller.
“A single platform reduces the number of components and the wiring and programming times in the work- shops. It also reduces stock volumes, and the variety of spare parts needed.” Denis Oerther, Mecapack Purchasing Manager
Single line controller
- Fewer components
- Less wiring
- Less programming
- Smaller inventory of spares
“We have developed from being a manufacturer of individual machines towards becoming a supplier of engineering solutions. We owe this evolution directly to the development of Omron technology.” Cyrille Couloigner, Mecapack Automation Research
A complete turnkey packaging line
“These days our customers look for machines which can work at high speed and with increased capacity. But they also want to build a relationship with a single Project Manager who can offer a global solution for both primary and secondary packaging. This is what we have been working to establish for the past five years.” Benoît Méfort, Mecapack Development
Empty trays are loaded by a tray denester on the infeed line and conveyed up to the sealing station. The sealing operation consists in welding a thermoplastic film on the edges of the trays, the operation being performed in a vacuum or in a neutral gas atmosphere. Before any sealing operation, a new length of film is unwound, positioned over the trays, welded on the edge of the trays and excess film wound again on a scrap roll.
