Actuators for the packaging industry
Among the application fields of electric linear actuators, as devices used for handlings automation, there is also the packaging industry, with different kinds of linear movements along the production line.
The main solutions proposed by MecVel regard:
- Automated format changeover: regulation of the position of the rollers according to the product processed or the kind of packaging
- Guiding systems: control of the direction of the goods on the conveyor belt during diverting and packaging
- End of line solutions: loading/unloading of baskets with finished or raw material
The duty cycle optimization is fundamental to minimize downtime and increase production in the packaging sector, as it might be in many other industrial fields. Consequentially, the automation of the whole production chain increases the overall line capacity. MecVel products automate the chain and the several working stations along the production line, from the raw material processing to the finished product packaging.
If efficiency is measured in productivity, the electric linear actuator at the service of these systems must be fast and high-performance, demonstrating to process in an effective way different products in terms of shape, weight, and material.
Safety and reliability are two more features at the basis of the electric linear actuators development, as important as the flexibility given by MecVel tailoring service, which can configure each product to tailor it according to the kind of packaging.
Moreover, using an electric system instead of a hydraulic or pneumatic one allows this industrial field to be eco-sustainable and non-polluting.
MecVel actuators are reliable, performing, and eco-friendly! They are then the perfect tool for automation in the packaging sector!
