Packaging & Material Handling


We are dealing here with the contents, but also the packaging. This is certainly true in the consumer market, where packaging should trigger the consumer to buy the product it contains – or the opposite, in the case of tobacco. In addition the outer packaging should also look attractive. For example, these days many products are placed on the shelf (retail-ready) in the box, for neater presentation and easier shelf stocking. 

Similar developments are seen in the professional market. The importance of product imaging and packaging is increasing, and the logistics especially have to be efficient. For example, retail-ready packaging is provided with additional perforations and may not be damaged through handling. It should also not cause malfunctions during processing and must be easy to handle. This means that handling of packages, but also of products in general is increasingly becoming a critical process step. This places high demands on automation and robotisation.

This means many functional challenges being imposed on the manufacturers of packaging machines and other handling equipment. Along with this, seamless integration into complete lines is required for physical handling but also for communication with regard to control. At the same time, the machine builders and system integrators need to deliver their packaging and handling systems ever faster, as investment decisions are increasingly being made at the last minute. 

All of this requires continuous innovation and the efficient organisation of the construction and installation of lines. Standardisation of components and modules contributes to that, as well as a smart logistics concept for mechanical and electrotechnical supplies. The technical value-added distributor can provide broad advice on that and of course deliver the necessary supplies and technology. This partner knows everything about the contents and the packaging.

Compressed air check
A compressor is a powerful machine. Indispensable in many situations, but leaks in your pipe system can quickly become a major energy drain. Do you have a compressor at your location with a capacity of more than 20 kW? And has it not been checked in the last two years? Inquire about our compressed air check. We use an ultrasonic meter to uncover any leaks in your pipe network, mark them and list them in a rapport. All of this without interrupting your production. After our check you will know exactly where compressed air is escaping and what the efficiency of your compressed air infrastructure is.

    DIM seeks cooperation in the development of operating system
    From fresh pineapple to bite-size portions of fruit in a resealable bucket. The Piñabar makes it possible in less than 20 seconds. For a customer in a supermarket it is just a matter of pressing a button. For Pierre van de Braak, director at Dutch International Manufacturing \(DIM\) and the inventor of the Piñabar, a complex process preceded it. Being a machine manufacturer, he got support from Schneider Electric, S2 and itsme for the electrotechnical section of the machine.

    Kind Technologies optimises production flow Rittal enclosures
    How does an organisation ensure the transition from start-up to scale-up to go smoothly? For fast-growing Kind Technologies the answer partly lay in scalability: not only growing fast, but above all efficiently and smartly. Together with Rittal and itsme they took a closer look at the production process of their enclosures. By partially outsourcing the assembly work, the lead time has been reduced from four weeks to just one week.
