Palletised goods packed

Palletised goods packed efficiently and safely with technology of Beumer The topic of safety when transporting and storing palletised goods has been becoming more important. For this reason, the company Beumer, Beckum/Germany developed the packing machine “stretch hood A”, that offers practical and safe handling for user. During the development, the specialists of Beumer analysed various components of other machines in the same model range and optimised them in terms of function, arrangement and ergonomics. This includes an intuitive menu system on the machine control via a soft-touch panel, an optimised, ergonomically designed workplace for the operator and material-friendly transporting of the film in the machine. To facilitate work for maintenance staff, and thus ensure higher machine availability, the new packing machine is accessable without a platform and steps. Maintenance work, such as changing the blades or the sealing bars, now handled at floor level. The operator opens a drawer for these activities, providing free access to blades and sealing bars. The machine is automatically brought to a standstill to protect the operator. This removes the need to move subassemblies to maintenance position. Due to this rapid access capability, maintenance work is accelerated, and the risk of accidents and malfunctions minimised. With just a few actions, and completely without tools, the operator can feed in the film. Organize workflows efficiently An innovative, material friendly film transport system feeds the previously created film hood into the system. On its way to the crimping and stretching unit, the sealing seam on the film hood cools down so that it can be crimped without loosing time. This removes the need for an energy-intensive cooling unit and time-consuming cooling. The pallets can be packed in a shorter cycle time thus reducing idle times, while at the same time ensuring improved packaging performance and less energy consumption. The developers have also improved the human-machine interface to offer an even more ergonomic workflow to the user. For this, the intralogistics specialist has introduced the Beumer Group Human Machine Interface (HMI), a newly-developed operator panel with an optimised user interface and graphical navigation. The soft-touch panel uses pictograms to guide the user through the machine control menus. The panel also gives the operator access to all required training programs. About Beumer Beumer Group is an international manufacturing leader in intralogistics in the fields of conveying, loading, palletising, packaging, sortation and distribution technology. Together with Crisplant a/s and Enexco Teknologies India Limited, the company employed some 3,700 people in 2013, taking orders with a value of some 770 million Euro. With its subsidiaries and sales agencies, Beumer Group is present in many industries worldwide. 36 f+h Intralogistics 4/2014

Packaging Ease of integration – expand flexibly With its U-shaped frame design (Image), the packaging system can be easily connected to existing conveying systems. Thus uninterrupted material flow can be guaranteed. In addition the Beumer stretch hood can be equipped with the Beumer “Opti Stretch”-system. The crimping bow, made of high-quality steel, swivels in even closer to the package, thus substantially improving the controlled application of film to the package. This improves system availability and enhances the visual appearance. The palletized goods are clearly visible through the smooth surface of the transparent, highly flexible film. Film packaging protects the goods against atmospheric influences, water, dust and insects and transport safety is substantially improved. To be able to process various films, and implement a variety of packaging processes, such as understretch or high-rack stretch, the new system can be equipped with the Beumer “multistretch”-system.
