The cooperation between this company (one of the biggest multinationals active in the coffee market) and Universal Pack begins in 1977 with the purchasing of a stand-alone machine for granular coffee, for the English division of the company.
The project we cover today involves the development of a complete line to package granular coffee mixes in sachets and automatically insert them into pre-glued cartons.
The purchaser needed a solution allowing for the best available flexibility, output, and compliance with the requirements of the food industry.
Universal Pack’s project fulfilled all requirements. It is based on the following aspects:
Advanced reel management system with titanium reel shaft for easy lifting and carrying (it weighs less than 15kg) The dosing system can be removed and positioned at a comfortable height to facilitate cleaning and size changeovers
A customized sachet transfer system has been developed to keep primary and secondary packaging in separated environments
Thanks to a Universal Pack patent- ed system, you can minimise the volume of cases by positioning sachets on their edges
Adjustments and size changeovers are performed without using tools. To guarantee the utmost precision at any speed, the lines have been equipped with single-lane check weighing cells with an accuracy of up to 1/1000 of gram, with direct feedback to the dosing unit
Monoblock integrated line for maximum OEE: all the electronics on the line are integrated in order to manage states, commands, configurations and data storage from one single access point
Universal Pack cartoning machines offer total visibility of cartons, both from the front side and the rear side of the machine. This exclusive and unique feature makes adjustments and size changeovers particularly easy since it is possible to visually “follow” the product during all stages of production
Moreover, Universal Pack cartoner has a high carton magazine capacity even in a very small footprint (magazine is 1,5 meters long). www.unirersalpack.it
