WRAPAROUND CASE PACKER HIGHLIGHTS SECONDARY SYSTEMS EXPERTISE

Long renowned for its high-speed automatic bagging systems, Kockums will showcase its newly expanded repertoire of secondary packaging lines on Stand 75 at AUSPACK 2017.

This new range of packaging systems includes: wraparound packers, pick and place robotic packers, carton and tray erectors, carton closers, tray, pad, and film shrink wrappers, palletisers and multi-packers for continuous packing of bottles, jars, pots and similar products.

The IWA wraparound case packer is an intermittent motion machine able to pack pouches, bags, bottles, jars, cans, and boxes into a single- or double-faced shelf-ready carton.

Kockums will supply the unit with an individually designed product infeed system to meet customer requirements, and this includes the option for a dual infeed to handle two different products.

The unique dual servo-driven case transfer system allows the case length to be selected from the operator interface screen, removing the need for time-consuming manual size change adjustments.  And an optional rotating HMI system allows the operator to control from either side of the machine.

This machine can be supplied to create either an internal or external minor flap. Full-size guard doors on both sides of the machine offer complete access for operator intervention. Fully automatic adjusting product guides guarantee higher reliability and precision when changing to a new carton size.

As with any machinery supplied by Kockums, support is a major part of the package, as the company’s CEO, Francois Steyn points out. “It’s all well and good to import the latest European machine for that expansion project but Australia is a long way away from Europe and they wake up when we go home,” he says.

“Relying on support from afar has been a source of frustration to many customers in our industry. At Kockums we realise that having delivered a very sophisticated piece of machinery to a customer, we have an obligation to support the customer and help them to get ready to run and maintain their new investment, “ he adds.

The company operates a partnership programme that allows customers to select the most appropriate level of support to suit their unique operation. Services include operator and maintenance training, regular scheduled preventive maintenance, remote assistance, spare parts, and breakdown support as required.

“Our engineers are specifically trained on the machines we supply, and our aim is to have the ability to solve 90% of all issues without contacting the OEM,” says Francois Steyn.
