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).
AL80 and FAST WRAP1250 spearhead Microline’s production range for paper roll packaging. The machines offer a continuous operating cycle, which ensures higher performance, lower energy consumption and better efficiency for optimum management of different product sizes.
The increasing popularity of non-woven products on the market led Microline to develop specific solutions to manage wrapping stages. This material is often converted in a similar way to folded products typical of the tissue sector, such as napkins and table cloths
Wrapping systems for cotton pads (for make-up removal) and cotton buds make up a significant part of the Microline product range. We have designed a side-loading case packing machine combined with a pick & place feeding system for make-up removal pads.
Microline offers a full portfolio of products for secondary packaging. These offer the same technology and attention to detail that customers have come to expect from our primary packaging machinery, with the added advantage that our case packers and palletisers can be adapted to a vast range of products.
The packaging world has been abuzz with news of Industry 4.0 for years, and particularly technologies for line automation and remote assistance. Few companies can boast Microline’s experience in this field. This Emilia-Romagna-based company has always put its customers first and foremost, seeking the best ways to ensure prompt and ongoing support.
Numerous factors have contributed to the market success of the AL80. This roll packaging unit is an ideal blend of strength and performance. Its packaging material requirements have been cut by using very fine film and a packaging process without any waste trimmings.
