Fully automated oiling process: Makat BC96 series for next level production
The more process steps manufacturers automate, the more stable and reliable their production becomes. Product finishing is the last process step during the production of gummies and jellies – but not less important than the previous process steps. It still influences the quality of the packaged gummies.
The fully automated oiling drum Makat BC96 has several centerlining features and recipe management for a lower process variability. Via a Human Machine Interface (HMI) operators can set individual target values for the different production parameters and save them in a product recipe to call up the data as required. This way, gummy and jelly manufacturers can achieve more reliable processes, which not only lead to a higher product quality, but also to a higher OEE, reduced product waste and fast product changeovers. Furthermore, it enables product specific parameter settings and individual treatment of the gummies.
Sensors facilitate process monitoring and preventive error detection at the oiling process. Integrated software immediately detects deviations and reports them to the operator. “This allows operators to keep supervising their processes and avoid process disturbances or at least to early initiate troubleshooting. For a continuously high product quality and a running production,“ explains Dr. Sandra Link, Product Manager at Makat.
For further support of the operator the BC96 features an operator-guiding-system. Integrated step-by-step-instruction facilitates, for example, the start of production or pre-defined cleaning procedures.
The future of vertical packaging is here
The SVX Duplex is part of the vertical SVX series launched by Syntegon during interpack 2023. It is the go-to machine for high speed vertical packaging with an output of up to 600 bags per minute.
The core innovation of all SVX variants is a cross-seal drive consisting of four independently controlled servo motors. The optimised solution, which currently has pending patents, gives manufacturers full control over the vertical and horizontal movement, ensuring reliable seals. Thanks to a combination of four motors and low inertia, the drive contributes to achieving highest outputs. “Depending on the bag parameters as well as the dosing of the product, the SVX Duplex has an output of up to 600 bags per minute with two film lanes,” explains Martin Boutkan, Product Manager for VFSS technology.
In terms of design and overall aesthetics, the SVX series also stands out: a front cylinder with curved sliding doors redefines machine manipulation and ease of access. Upon opening, the doors relocate to the back part of the cylinder, making sure they do not obstruct operators during the daily work. And with a machine width of only 1220 mm the SVX Duplex can easily be integrated in new and existing packaging lines.
