This demostrates an automatic
packing solution supplied to the UK facility of a large and well known
global beverage company. Packing unstable stacks like this is always
difficult but, unlike most other tea producers, the tea bags are
supplied individually and not linked together - making it particularly
demanding. The flowrapper is fully integrated by us into the IMA tea
bag making machine and operation is automatic with no full time
Designing special infeeds for
flowrappers is standard practice for us and they can be fitted to your
existing flowrapper together with internal upgrade and modernisation,
or to any of our used flowrappers, or to our Series 1000 new machines.
Integrating the flowrapper, both physically and electronically, with
the IMA tea bag manufacturing machine was performed by our own expert
engineers with minimal resource required from IMA.
Recently Ilapak themselves approached us to repeat the excercise
for one of their customers. By shipping one of their SMART machines
directly to us we could integrate the necessary automation prior to final installation. In many ways
Ilapak and midasmotion are competitors but by working together like this, all parties, including the customer, receive the best possible solution.
