THE ASSIGNMENT

A very high product performance is needed with simultaneous extremely high product variance between different types of tea. A particular challenge is closing over-filled cartons. Another task is printing and re-packing as well as integrating an existing foil wrapping machine to protect the flavour.

THE SOLUTION

By using a two-pull chain with 12-times usage handling, we were able to achieve a performance of 200 cycles per minute, during which 12 products are processed simultaneously. A lid post-compacting station was incorporated for the over-filled cartons. The foil wrapping machine was integrated in the plant by means of signal exchange. Thanks to a 6-axial robot, the compact re-packaging could be carried out in a very small area. The pack volume was increased by nesting the teabags.
