Perfect coordination

At Pack Expo 2014 (Nov. 2–5, McCormick Place in Chicago) the BEUMER Group will be presenting its full line of machinery for filling, palletizing and packaging. One new addition to its product range is the redesigned BEUMER stretch hood, a highly efficient system for packaging palletized goods.

BEUMER delivers filling, palletizing and packaging equipment from a single source. Using intelligent automation, the full-line supplier links individual machines and systems to create efficient packaging lines.

An example is the new BEUMER fillpac bagging system, which can be incorporated flexibly into existing packaging lines. It is equipped with a calibratable electronic weighing unit which ensures that the fillpac always achieves accurate filling quantities. Special software enables the unit to communicate continuously with the filling spouts. This allows users to get the best out of their packaging lines, as it is not necessary to reject bags with incorrect weights from the process.

BEUMER also offers the paletpac high-performance layer palletizer, which stacks paper, PE and PP bags on different sized pallets flexibly, accurately and stably. BEUMER has overhauled this product so that it works even more efficiently. Users benefit from improved accessibility, shorter installation time, greater flexibility and therefore lower costs. The palletizer can be fitted with a double belt turning mechanism which allows bags filled with bulk materials to be stacked on pallets gently, quickly and accurately. BEUMER's Customer Support specialists can easily retrofit existing machines with this solution.

In addition, BEUMER has redesigned its high-performance stretch hood from the bottom up. As part of this, its experts analyzed and optimized various components. They added a soft touch panel for better menu guidance and optimized the workstations according to ergonomic principles. An innovative film transport system gently conveys the film to the machine. For users this means enhanced performance and better availability.

Visitors to the trade fair will also learn about BEUMER's Customer Support. Experts provide maintenance and service for customers all over the world, ensuring that their systems keep running at all times.
