BEUMER will be exhibiting as a system supplier
At CeMAT (May 31 to June 3, Hanover) BEUMER will be demonstrating the company’s extensive expertise as a solution supplier not only for sorting and distribution equipment, but also for integrated packaging and intralogistics systems. To its highly efficient filling, palletizing and packaging installations, BEUMER supplies the matching components for implementing material flow systems for each particular sector. The customer gets everything from one source – including the software.
As a systems integrator, BEUMER supplies complete packaging lines. The company’s range includes, for example, the innovative Form-Fill-Seal system (FFS system), known as the BEUMER embapac and used particularly in the chemical industry. The BEUMER fillpac fills a range of materials, particularly those used in the construction materials industry, and can handle structures ranging from very fine to very coarse. Customers can obtain the powerful BEUMER paletpac layer palletizer for stacking the filled bags on pallets. These are equipped with a clamp or double-belt turning device, depending on the product requirements. The palletized goods can be efficiently secured with a stretch film using the proven, high-performance packaging equipment from the BEUMER stretch hood series. BEUMER will be showing this machine in action – with new and innovative features – to visitors to the exhibition stand in Hanover.
BEUMER is implementing sector-specific applications in the field of palletizing and packaging systems, and is enhancing its packaging lines to create complete intralogistics systems. This is done by fitting the lines with standardized components such as conveyor equipment or vehicle-based systems, a variety of handling solutions and manipulators such as robots, buffer and storage modules, as well as the appropriate software. The customer obtains the complete intralogistics system from one source, and therefore has a single, reliable point of contact. BEUMER will therefore be exhibiting at CeMAT as a system supplier for a wide range of industries.
Efficiently sorted and distributed
Efficient material flows are becoming ever more important in today’s e-commerce environment, because the supplier’s delivery promise is of crucial importance as online business keeps growing. The BEUMER Group supports mail-order companies and providers with both expertise and with powerful sorting and conveying technology. BEUMER is therefore showcasing models of a variety of solutions – such as the E-Tray Sorter – at the exhibition stand. Energy is supplied to this standard machine contactless. It is available with motor-driven tilt units in sizes BS 25 and BS 55. With the integreted diverter function, the tilt unit enables individually packaged goods to be discharged in two dimensions on both sides of the sorter. Since the tilting movement is independent of the sorter speed, the equipment runs significantly faster than comparable sorters.
A model of the BEUMER Belt Tray Sorter will also be on show. The supplier can fit this with a variety of modules and functions, depending on the application. With a contactless energy supply and a linear motor drive, it sorts goods and conveys them carefully and reliably to the correct destination, regardless of size, shape or the kind of surface. The modular design makes it possible to adapt the equipment ideally to the conditions of a particular building – and without restrictions on performance. A further model demonstrates the Crisplant LS-4000, a high-speed loop sorter used in postal and distribution centers. The cross-belt and tilt-tray sorters mean that the goods are handled quickly yet carefully.
Semi-automatic unloading equipment
Machine-supported bulk unloading of swap bodies rather than manual unloading can be used to increase the capacities of existing logistics centers. A significantly greater gate-throughput is therefore possible. BEUMER launched the first generation of a semi-automatic machine, the BEUMER Parcel Picker, on the market for this purpose, and will be showing it at CeMAT. This bulk unloading machine relieves workers of heavy physical work, increasing productivity at the same time. With this, the staff at postal and CEP companies can unload packages of varying sizes and weights, parcels and shipping units from swap bodies and full trailers, with high-performance. With an average spectrum of packages, and with an experienced operative working the equipment, throughputs of more than 2500 packages per hour can be achieved.
The BEUMER Group is an international leader in the manufacture of intralogistics systems for conveying, loading, palletising, packaging, sortation and distribution. Together with Crisplant a/s and Enexco Teknologies India Limited, the BEUMER Group employs 4,000 people worldwide, and achieves an annual turnover of about 680 million EUR. With its subsidiaries and sales agencies, the BEUMER Group serves customers around the globe, across a wide range of industries.
