YOUR BEST SOLUTION FOR THE BIG SIZES

YOUR BEST SOLUTION FOR THE BIG SIZES

In the last few years the tiles sector has reached new horizons, redefining new qualitative and dimensional limits.

In a short time, the standard sizes have been overtaken by the big sizes, obliging consequently, the manufacturers to renew or enlarge their products range in order to satisfy the growth in demand.

Marpak (OMS Group) a leading company in the end of line and packaging solutions, in synergy with the OMS’ R&D department, makes a leap forward, ahead of time, developing new self-sizing packaging lines to process new dimensions.The first line has been created for CERAMICA FONDOVALLE (Modena, Italy), a leading company in high quality porcelain-stoneware tiles and slabs production and distribution.

The challenge was hard. Produce a single plant able to run different sizes. 3600mm X 1750mm for the crate palletized products and 3200mm X 800mm for the rack-palletized slabs with height up to 2mts and a weight up to 3, 5 tons.

Totally provided by Marpak, the line is composed by different in-line machines able to run, automatically, a random production. The first part of the line includes dedicated loading areas, followed by horizontal 06 and vertical 08 strapping machines, tasked of ensuring at the rack, the fragile and precious slabs, while an automatic corner applicator device, protects the edges.

The second part of the line is dedicated to protect the products from external factors. Composed by loading areas for all the other products, it includes self-sizing machines AT05+AT04 able to cover, with a protection film, 5 sides of the packages. A special thermo-shrinking machine FT54 warm the film, creating a solid and strong block.

This cutting-edge packaging line is able to reach a productivity of 20 packs per hour.

The result in terms of protection and aesthetics makes the MARPAK line, your best choice for the big sizes.

OMS GROUP, a matter of packaging.

NEW STRAPPING SYSTEM
December 2, 2019

NEW STRAPPING SYSTEM

Our distributor, Gordian Strapping, has supplied a new vertical plastic strapping machine and slat conveyor to Wienerberger at their plant in Ewhurst.

Wienerberger is the world’s largest producer of bricks, and the No. 1 producer of clay roof tiles in Europe, with 229 plants in 27 countries.

The Ewhurst factory required a new strapping machine to replace an ageing system that had reached the end of its working life. The site also needed a new slat conveyor underneath the stretch hooding machine to replace the previous conveyor that had not proven to be robust enough for the demanding environment of a clay brick factory.

Gordian installed an OMS TS300 vertical strapping machine, equipped with the latest generation TR2000 strapping head, along with a test rig and a spare strapping head. The spare head can be introduced into the line in the event of a breakdown, or to allow production to continue while another head is serviced off-line on the test rig.

The OMS TR2000 Head, which can apply a max. tension of 7000N (700kg) is designed for use with Polyester Strapping (PET) and is proven through- out the building products industry. It features quick-change modular parts that can be swapped out within 5 minutes in the event of a fault, there- by minimizing downtime. Heat Seal technology means that the head can be quickly adjusted to suit different strap specifications, and a major service is only required every 200,000 cycles. The strapping machine is equipped with an OMS PBTR Turntable Jumbo Strap Dispenser holding 7 coils of strap. With 4,500m of strap on each coil, rather than 1,500m on a standard coil of strap, downtime due to coil changes is kept to a minimum.

Gordian is as an existing supplier to Wienerberger with a proven track record of installing and maintaining strapping and stretch hooding equipment. With 16 highly trained service engineers based across the UK, Gordian is well placed to offer after sales service and support.

Pinguin Lutosa

Pinguin Lutosa

Gordian Strapping LTD, our distributor in the U.K. has provided Pinguin Lutosa with a sistematic solution at their site of King’s Lynn.

Pinguin Lutosa, a leading frozen vegetable processor boasts some of the best automated packing facilities in Europe. The Kings Lynn site is a state of the art production and packing site with capacity to produce over 120,000 tonnes of product p.a. Gordian has integrated a AVR 900 automatic pallet ring wrapper into Pinguin’s packaging line.

The machine replaced an ageing rotary arm wrapper and is part of a programme of upgrades to the automated packaging facility at Kings Lynn. It was essential that the Ring Wrapper matched the footprint of the old machine and was compatible with the existing conveyor and safety systems.

It was also vital for the new machine to overcome the costly issue of loose film tails which can lead to rejection of pallets by automated warehousing systems. Rapid installation over a weekend was critical to ensure minimum disruption to the freezing of fresh vegetable produce.

Pinguin Lutosa has the AVR 900 Ring Wrappers in operation at their site in Belgium and had no hesitation in installing another machine in the UK.

AVR900 + ADV system
July 17, 2018

AVR900 + ADV system

AVR900 is an automatic rotating ring wrapping machine.

Is it suitable for all applications where high production rates are required especially in the beverage sector so it can be easily inserted into packaging lines.

The rotating ring designed without sliding electrical contacts guarantees: less maintenance, reduced electrical consumption, drastic reduction of overheating and risks of electric shock consequently a greater overall safety of the machine.

This model can be equipped with one or two pre-stretch reels of film and allows the wrapping cycle to be started and stopped at any palletized load height. Rotation takes place by means of a high-strength belt whose speed is adjustable directly from the operator panel.

At the end of cycle the film is not heat-sealed (thus avoiding emission of harmful fumes) but through a system patented by “OMS” where the queue of film is positioned under the previous wrap to ensure a perfect finish.

Another system developed and patented is the pre-stretching carriage: it guarantees a stretching ratio of film up to 300%, without the use of additional motor or electrical contacts.

This results in greater reliability of packaging, load stability, reduced film consumption and maintenance.

AVR900 can be equipped with top-sheet device which allows the wrap of pallet dust or water proof ensuring a complete packaging on five sides.

OMS has also developed a fundamental and useful accessory for all companies wishing to put their brand on the packaged product; this option is integrated into a special reel holder unit where roll of advertising band is positioned. Results a saving of time for the application and protection of its own brand within the same packaging.

The advertising band can be applied at any point of the packaging thanks to a special ring vertical reading system, programmable according to required height.

A very small space available to install three strapping machines

This model of strapping machine has been purchased by an important multinational corporation of the United States.

Their first necessity was to have an implant made of two lines that could manage a very high productive performance per hour.

For this Company it was also very important to stick to all the security restrictions they had in their plant and to manage in the best way possible the limited space of the site of installation of such a complex implant.

OMS supplied an impant made of:

Three strapping machines model 082 that had two mobile strapping heads TR14HD equipped with a special device that allows to insert corner perimetral protections.

This configuration grants the maximum flexibility and productive capacity in function of the type of the product that needs to be packed.

Perimetral systems, devices and muting photocells to manage the security of the whole implant.

Centering and rotation device, transport of the pallets designed in particular according to the space available.
