Integrated packaging solutions

Multivac            Hall 5/ E23; 17/ A51

Multivac will present itself as an experienced manufacturer of automation solutions. The portfolio covers all types of automation tasks and levels of integration. With a holistic understanding of customers’ products and requirements, the processes for infeed, marking, quality inspection as well as cartooning and palletisation are also integrated in fully- automated solutions, in addition to packaging. This is why Multivac will display a complete line for packaging sliced goods at Interpack.

The R235 thermoforming packaging machine is specially designed for producing flat packs of sliced products. A quick-change system for the forming and sealing dies makes it easy to convert the machine to other pack formats. Various labelling and marking systems can also be integrated easily.

For loading of packs with sliced goods, two different loading systems will be showcased — the Multivac Horizontal Loader as well as Multivac Pick-and-Place system.


InnoDry Block

KHS Group                    Hall 13/ A31

The KHS Group will have compact and flexible systems on display. With its integrated buffer system, the newly developed KHS InnoDry Block permits accumulation-free, gentle pack conveying without the side guides otherwise required. This does away with the need for adjustment during format changeovers. The systems supplier from Dortmund will also be highlighting its new features in secondary packaging. To this end, at the trade show KHS Service will be presenting special conversions and its new service concept for packaging machines.

The KHS InnoDry Block combines a packaging machine with a palletiser and has a handle dispenser integrated into the packer. This setup is made possible by especially flexible buffer areas and the use of a highly dynamic handling system for layer formation which is being used in the blocked machine concept for the first time.


Stelda AR500 GT case sealer |Impel Services Hall 8B / G60

The Stelda range of case sealers from Impel Services, a part of the Welbound group, stand out for high-end automation delivered through a smartly designed and robust machine.

The on-demand-case-sealing (ODCS) feature provides flexibility to brands, where the market demands multiple SKUs.  Every box that can be sealed by the AR500 can be a different size — be it length width of height. The company will display the AR500 GT at Interpack 2017 with IIOT support (Industrial Internet of Things), where users will be able to access real-time production data even while they are on the move. Impel is a leading supplier of machines and solutions in South Asia. With the technical support of OEM partners like Nordson and Henkel, the company manufactures case sealing machines with multiple sealing technologies for markets requiring inline automation, flexibility and assurance of transit protection. The brand name STELDA stands for Security Tamper Evidence and Low Damages in Transit. The current portfolio includes preset and random case sealers with options of hotmelt glue, cold glue and self-adhesive tapes. Case erectors and case packers also come from the Stelda family of machines.

Zero-defect packaging

Heidelberg and Gallus Hall 13/ D75, E82

Heidelberg and its Swiss subsidiary Gallus will present a range of solutions and measures aimed at automating quality assurance and control, all integrated in the entire workflow and the participating machines in an intelligently networked production environment, under the motto ‘Smart Print Shop – Zero Defect Packaging’ at Interpack. These solutions and measures are designed to boost the international competitiveness of packaging producers by enabling reliable, productive, and economical production, especially of defect-free, high-quality folding cartons and labels in offset, digital, and flexo printing.

At Interpack, Heidelberg and Gallus will focus on the question of a colour management system that can span different sites and production methods; and the reduction of complexity, and therefore susceptibility, to defects as well as the means to safely and reliably identify incorrectly printed products without delay and remove them directly from the press or post-press process while production is underway. As part of this process, Heidelberg will show how a zero-defect principle can be implemented across the entire production process, from pre-press through press to post-press.
