Here is a report from our participation at interpack 2017.
Together with Coesia and our sister companies, FlexLink set up two fully functional production lines showcasing the filling processes and smart packaging at Interpack. The aseptic carton line by IPI and FlexLink ran a 10 min real production sequence every hour. FlexLink displayed the latest within narrow stainless steel conveyor systems. The Coesia Smart Factory Line was an integrated line that produced personalized gift boxes for the visitors with tea pouch samples, a hand cream tube and a power bank.
Line performance data in real time
Both production lines were monitored by FlexLink’s OEE tool which permits easy access to important line performance data, in real time. Bottlenecks and root causes are easily identified through utilization reports, trend analysis and comparison.
The virtual factory
The visitors could also enjoy a virtual walk inside the Coesia factory. Simulating your future production line enables you to verify and optimize system capacity, reducing investment risk.
Solutions for food and dairy
FlexLink displayed the company´s latest equipment for food production, the WLX conveyor, which has recently passed the 3-A qualification. This is unique among providers of conveyor systems. The modular wide belt conveyors with stainless steel beam are designed to fit into demanding primary and secondary packaging applications.
