Automatic Lines for Bars
Modular system for the automatic distribution of products such as: bars, layer cakes, swiss roll and similar, arriving in regimented rows from the upstream production line.
Pivot Stations (Up & Down)
EPS is the point on the wrapping line where the product is shunted into rows. It is electronically operated by brushless, stepping motors and designed for delicate or irregularly shaped products. All the casings, belts and rollers are easily removed without using tools. Servicing and cleaning are therefore, particularly easy and quick. The setting of the tension, as with the centering of rollers, is carried out automatically.
EPS Up & Down (Patented System)
This is the new patented system designed to shunt the products, delivered from a cooling tunnel or oven, into rows. The system is made up of a central belt which, with its up and down movement, lifts the rows of products to a predetermined height and distributes them at different levels corresponding to the different number of wrapping lines. The system is controlled by brushless motors. All conveyors and the central carriage, guided by runners, are easily replaced without using tool.
Automatic Feeders (90°-In Line)
ECF (Electronic Cross Feeder): This unit is employed when product arriving from an existing production line must be fed at moderate speeds, onto the infeed of a flow wrap machine.
It is a flexible system incorporating 2 or more conveyors, drives by brushless motors, following the speed of the production line. The system is suitable for single or even product feeding.
ALF: Automatic In - Line Feeder
The system is used for high speed in-line feeding of regular or irregular shaped products and is particularly useful for delicate products which could otherwise suffer damage from scuffing due to contact with other product.
- Cantilever construction; belt replacement; roller removal; opening of protective screens can all be carried out without using tools
- Belt speed automatically and continuously calculated depending on the product flow
- No need for timing hardware
- Modular structure allows the system to be adapted depending on the characteristics of the product
ALT: Automatic In-Line Feeder for Tray Containers
ALT is an automatic in-line feeder for tray containers. It is made up of an accumulation belt and two or more conveyors controlled by brushless, stepping motors which synchronize the delivery onto the infeed belt of the flow pack wrapping machine. The system is completed by PFM`s automatic tray denester.
Product Turner – Grouping System
The product turner allows each individual product piece to be turned so that it is positioned correctly on the machine.
Multipack - Automatic Flow Pack Wrapping Line
To complete the automatic flow pack wrapping line there is PFM`s grouping system for multipacks, which enables multiple products to be wrapped, in order to meet modern marketing requirements. The wrapped products on leaving the flow wrap machine, after the first wrapping stage, can then be grouped vertically or horizontally, at random or in a specific order. Suitable containers for this process may be rigid, such as preformed trays or cardboard supports, or else obtained from a roll of pre-cut forms which are made up automatically. Because PFM`s machines are highly specialized they ensure high operational efficiency, while keeping running costs to a minimum.
Carousel Feeder with Horizontal Movement
This feeding system is suitable for creating multipacks. It consists of a horizontal carousel which transfers products from the flow wrapper into a secondary packaging machine to produce the multipacks. The system is capable of high speeds and is extremely flexible. It is electronically controlled, designed to facilitate case of maintenance. All guards can be quickly removed without the use of special tools.
Robotic Carousel - Cartoning Centre
The robotic Carousel is a cartoning centre comprising a 2 axle robot in aluminum and a rotating steel plate for collecting the products, constructed so as to guarantee a perfect level surface. The materials and construction of the carousel ensure the highest level of hygiene, even in the most caustic environments. The machine has been designed so that it can be fitted with various pick-up systems for moving the widest range of products. This model allows maximum accessibility which makes any checks or maintenance easy to carry out.
