Optimization and speeding up of the flows of large production volumes: ELETTRIC80 and BEMA provide the beverage industry companies with a fully integrated logistic system that connects the DRAGON palletizer, the high-speed robotic stretch wrapper SILKWORM, both directly connected to the end of the line, LASER GUIDED VEHICLES and the new ROBOTIC LABELLER. The whole is managed by a unique software designed and engineered by ELETTRIC80, SMART DECISION MAKER.
The beverage industry, in terms of product flows, is the manufacturing sector that achieves the highest volumes.
For these applications, ELETTRIC80 uses, in particular, the extremely flexible high-speed DRAGON palletizer which is designed for a fast restart after a machine downtime and is capable of changing formats very quickly without the need of mechanical adjustments. It is installed directly after the end of the packaging line and is completely accessible from the ground, thus it does not require any expensive platforms and eliminates safety risks associated with working at height.
SILKWORM robotized wrapper - thanks to the use of 1000-mm high film reel, the robotic technology and the motionless wrapping head - guarantees high production speed and the flexibility of wrapping different products with different dimensions, while preserving product integrity and ensuring efficiency and safety. All these advantages are combined in a very compact footprint, with flexible layouts that can be integrated into existing as well as new production lines.
Furthermore, the new ROBOTIC LABELLER made by ELETTRIC80 supports high speed wrapping and special applications with its flexibility and reliability.
Finally, the LASER GUIDED VEHICLES that usually carry 2-4 pallets at the same time in order to meet the fast production flows typical of the beverage sector: therefore, thanks to an efficient design we guarantee to our customers a drastic reduction in stoppages on the production lines.
Elettric80’s systems enable the packaging lines to operate at maximum capacity and ensure efficient shipping processes, reducing the long waiting times of truck loading even when many different SKUs must be loaded.
The high-density storage system (AS/RS SMART STORE) can be integrated into the plant when the warehouse capacity and the SKU profile require it.
Reliability and support, along with the experience gained in the implementation of installations, are prerequisites for industries with large flows, such as those operating in the beverage sector.
Thus, SMART DECISION MAKER, the software designed and engineered by Elettric80, is further honed on the basis of the know-how acquired in the field, with the aim of offering complete and safe automation solutions to the companies operating in this sector.
Some important features of this software are: proven capability to interface with major ERP systems, pre-deployment testing procedures, warehouse and traffic optimization, shipping speeds, and clear KPI reporting.
THE PARTNERSHIP WITH TETRA PAK
Since 2008 ELETTRIC80 and BEMA have been delivering solutions to Tetra Pak that coordinate the entire management process of warehouses, end-to-end, without interruption, in a fast and efficient way. This results in decreasing the margins of error, lowering costs and cutting production schedules. Said advantages have a positive knock-on effect on the whole chain of value, right down to the end consumer who gets tangible benefits in terms of product customization potential, quality and savings as a result of this partnership.
