The performance of end-of-line packaging systems plays a key role in ensuring efficient production, capable of quickly adapting to market changes and improving the quality and sustainability of the final packaging of beverages, food, detergents, and chemical products.
SMI automatic palletizing systems from the APS ERGON range represent the ideal solution for managing an uninterrupted, optimized and flexible production flow, capable of quickly switching from one format to another, according to the consumers’ purchasing habits.
An example of this flexible technology is represented by the APS 4140 L ERGON palletizer, which stands out for the perfect synchronization between pallet loading, palletizing layer formation and interlayer insertion.
The new palletizer designed by SMI is a high-performance system equipped with two independent columns that perform the vertical movement for palletizing boxes, bundles, trays and packs in general with a production speed up to 140 packs per minute / 400 layers per hour (values can change according to the product): the first column is equipped with motorized belt, while the second with basket.
Moreover, the APS system is composed of pre-wired modules that can be configured on an individual basis, with advantages in terms of easy and quick installation and start-up, as well as versatility and capacity to adapt to any end-of-line logistic condition.
