Haver & Boecker has released what it is calling “a symphony of technologies” – a depalletiser, bag applicator and packer – all “perfectly matched, digitally interconnected, and centrally controlled” to ensure a consistent and steadily high-performing packing process.

The entire high-performance packing system is controlled automatically by the bags to be filled.

By scanning the QR code of an empty bag, the line receives the information on which product type is to be filled into this bag design. 

All components of the line, as well as the product supply, adjust automatically to this information and this type. 

The process: after scanning, the new AMICUS depalletiser picks up the specified bag stacks from the pallet and places them on the holding table at the RADIMAT.

The bag scanner in the RADIMAT reads the QR code for checking and for data transfer to the QUAT2RO System Monitoring. Next, the bags are automatically shot onto the spouts of the roto-packer automatically, then filled and convened.

Different types of bags can be used, which are provided with a QR code. The code contains the information with which product the bags are filled, and gives the entire process even more security.

The roto-packer can also be equipped with upgrades to allow for sealing the bag valves after filling.
