Packaging of pumps
Sealing System has delivered a complete packaging line to Grundfos. The solution features automatic WrapAround display packing and subsequent robot palletizing. Line throughput is 15 pumps per min.
Grundfos line 1
The first process on the line is a Meurer tray erector which erects an inlay which is then placed in a palette. We chose a Meurer CM/TP because it meets all of Grundfos’ demands.
To meet the demands for short changeover, the machine was equipped with servo motors on all the adjusting spindles. A complete format changeover can be done in 1½ minutes by one operator. An operator display makes it easy for the operator to gain an overview of all functions. It also informs the operator of any errors and offers corrective actions.
Subsequently, we have installed an Okura palletizing robot with a sheet magazine. The robot palletizes the case-packed pumps on pallets and inserts sheets between the layers.
The solution consists of a complete packaging line for packaging pumps in display boxes. The solution was to replace an existing Wrap Around (WA) machine and a tray erector. What we demanded was a high degree of reliability and fast changeover times. At the same time, it should be a very operator-friendly solution.
The first process on the line is a Meurer tray erector which erects an inlay which is then placed in a palette where the pump is placed manually. The pumps are then automatically conveyed to a Meurer Wrap Around machine where the inlay with the pump is pushed out of the pallet. The pumps are then packed in WA carton. The case is labeled and turned around before it arrives at the two manual packing stations where operators place the other components in the case. The lid is closed automatically before the case passes through a vision plant. The case is finally palletized in an Okura palletizing cell.
An operator display makes it easy for the operator to gain an overview of all functions. It also informs the operator of any errors and offers corrective actions.
Packaging and palletizing machines can be integrated in various intelligent packaging solutions. See more solutions in our Cases section.
We have made an animation of “The product's path through the packaging line" to illustrate the various functions that may be included in our intelligent packaging solutions.
