Emerson & Renwick has received an order for a special purpose converting and packaging line. The brief from the client was to eliminate manual handling of the substrate, and provide the capability to manufacture two totally distinct products on the same machine, one being a web product, the second being produced by a die cutting process.
The web process will consist of slitting and rewinding a 2.2m width web which will then be automatically wrapped, weighed and packaged into boxes. As the handling and unloading of the slit reels is critical to the packaging operation, they will be automatically unloaded by a motorized reel ejection system from a cantilevered reel bar onto a conveyor system.
The die cutting process involves cutting the product into squares, then transferring the material by conveyor into a compactor which automatically weighs and bags it ready for palletizing.
