Numerous domestic and international manufacturers acknowledge Microline’s excellent design skills, build quality and ability to innovate, holding in high regard its range of automated machinery, including secondary packaging and end-of-line solutions. The hallmark technology and attention to detail of its primary packaging machinery are to be found once again with the added advantage that case packer and palletiser design makes them suitable for a vast range of products. So not only solutions for the tissue sector, the company’s flagship, but also the cosmetic and food industry, designed to be cutting edge, but at the same time sustainable and long-lasting.
The company can also offer the customer a comprehensive end-of-line management solution, assessing all requirements relating to product type and output speed. Palletisers are utilised that can be paired with both case packers and shrink wrappers/bundlers. These have a portal or semi-portal frame based on interpolated Cartesian coordinates with four degrees of freedom.
The packed product (bundle, bag or box) travels along a motorised conveyor from the packaging machine to the palletising area. Here, depending on the model selected and collation type, a gripper picks up one or more bags/boxes for positioning on the pallet according to the required configuration. After completing either manual or automatic positioning of the product on the pallet, the latter is transferred to the storage area.
The machines can handle up to 3 incoming product lines and the same number of pallet stations.
Finally, the “standard” model can be fitted with a set of optionals for fully-automated processing, e.g. semi-automatic or automatic pallet change and special collators. Turning to the gripper systems utilised, the most common are: mechanical pick & place (standard) and vacuum pick & place (optional).
Microline automatic flow wrappers epitomise the quality and attention to detail that have always been a distinguishing feature of products manufactured by the company from Bologna. Over the years, Microline has developed various horizontal packaging solutions in response to customer requirements, the standout example being the FLOW WRAP 1000: a multi-pack bundler for AFH rolls.
In these difficult times, versatility plays a key role in overcoming difficulties and allowing firms to carry on competing at global level. The ability to adapt quickly to change is permanently bred into Microline’s DNA and the company has also applied this concept to the wide range of machines it offers.
The know-how and experience Microline has built-up over the years has made it a major player in the tissue market as well as in the food, cotton and cosmetics sectors. Microline offers complete lines for the food industry including conveyor belts, collation systems and outer packaging for coffee, tea, sugar, rice, bakery products, pasta, milk, yoghurt, ice-cream, etc
Microline's Tissue industry solutions have always been a feather in the cap of this Emilia-Romagna-based company. We supply high performing, top quality machines manufactured to the highest technological standards for this sector, using first-rate materials and components.
This coming 16th to 18th March Miami will be hosting Tissue World 2022. A stage upon which Microline intends to play a leading role, encouraged by its growing reputation in the Tissue sector that allows it to meet the entire needs of businesses of different types and sizes.
ML shrink wrappers are sturdy, flexible machines designed for packing products of different shapes and sizes in groups using two rolls of film (one upper and one lower). The machine uses heat-sealable and heat-shrinkable polyethylene plastic film (LDPE) to form a heat-shrinkable bundle.
Microline's AL series of wrapping machines are greatly appreciated by the Tissue sector for their efficiency: this machine range is designed for the horizontal packaging of products using plastic film wrapping material, which can be neutral or printed polyolefin (POF) or polyethylene (LDPE or MDPE).
