When effectiveness and flexibility become a hallmark
Interfolded products form a Tissue sector niche characterised by specific dynamics that bring particular challenges - also from a technological perspective - to the various supply chain stakeholders. They are products like wipes, paper towels and hospital paper rolls that are used in very diverse settings. They are used, for example, in the Ho.Re.Ca industry, in bars and restaurants, but also in medical settings and business locations. In any case, these products are, by definition, very delicate and require adequate know-how in order to handle and package them in an optimum manner. Thanks to its great experience in this sector, Microline is able to provide the right solution whatever the type of product, for both primary and secondary packaging. As a matter of fact, Microline machines can be configured as groups and systems able to simultaneously ensure both the proper orientation and gentle handling of the product.
The “ROM” series as a privileged platform for the development of accessory units
One example is the feeding system developed specifically for packaging interfolded wipes intended for industrial use, which was studied to address the problems of poor balance of the overpacking, which has a convex base. The ROM 600 is the machine on which this innovative system was developed. It is the medium-speed version of the family of Microline machines dedicated to automatic case packing and succeeds in combining efficiency, sturdiness and practicality. ROM series machines handle case pick-up, erection and filling operations and close the case with an adhesive tape or hot melt system. The very many products that can be packaged include multi-purpose, industrial and hospital paper rolls. Once they have passed the upstream cutting station, these products can be automatically introduced into a divider to be arranged in collation patterns of up to 5 parallel lines. They are then grouped, stacked and inserted into the case according to the set configuration.
The case of interfolded hand wipes: gentle handling and outstanding performance
Let’s take a step back to the ROM case packer feeding phase, which is where Microline focuses its engineering efforts. In this specific case, the critical problem was due to the need to process packets of hand wipes with paper overpacking: a pack that has a convex base, making it particularly unstable. In addition, a paper wrapping of products that are also made of paper is by its very nature extremely delicate and susceptible to tearing. The special feeding system developed requires the products to arrive by means of the infeed conveyor (also designed by Microline) maintaining the same orientation for the whole of the transport phase, through to case packing. Thanks to a combination of mechanical systems and meticulous machine development, the system ensures not only the proper orientation, but also gentle handling of the packs. As the machine is able to process 120 pieces / minute, this result is achieved without compromises in terms of performance, making the unit an ideal solution for a fully-comprehensive packaging line including secondary packaging in cases.
Microline siempre al pie del cañón en materia de sostenibilidad. Es por esto que nuestras máquinas tienen un consumo energético optimizado y no generan residuos, con un ahorro de material de embalaje entre el 20% y el 30% mayor que el de las máquinas de la competencia
AL80 y FAST WRAP1250 son lo mejor de lo mejor de la producción Microline dedicada al embalaje de rollos de papel. Estas máquinas se caracterizan por un ciclo de funcionamiento continuo que garantiza mejores prestaciones, menores consumos energéticos y mayor eficiencia, dado que permiten la gestión de productos de diferentes tamaños
El cierre total de las empresas por la pandemia de Coronavirus en 2020 dio origen un lento proceso que ha comportado la carencia de materias primas y al aumento de los costes de la energía. Por lo tanto, en este período las empresas necesitan más que nunca soluciones sostenibles que les permitan ahorrar los recursos a disposición y evitar desperdicios
With its firm commitment to sustainability, Microline manufactures machinery that affords significant waste reduction and optimised energy consumption. Microline also believes strongly in the use of new environmentally-sustainable materials. For this reason, it has partnered with Slovenian company Di Mucci d.o.o.
