For decades, conveyors have been used as a staple machine in various material handling processes. And as times changed, demands grew, so did the need for different types of conveyor systems. And these days, with industries leaning towards automated processes, conveyors are now a critical part of automation systems! They are most commonly used in industries that are required to:
- handle bulk materials – such as the food processing industry
- transport heavy machinery, for instance – construction companies
- move large volumes of resources from one place to another.
Precision in seven layers
Worldwide, up to 2.5 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day. Much of this is prepared from coffee powder capsule portions in coffee machines. Due to the necessary oxygen barrier to prevent ageing of the coffee due to oxidation, these capsule portions consist of either aluminium or a plastic composite foil with an integrated oxygen barrier. Since 2015, the latter have been produced by Greiner Packaging in Kremsmünster, Austria (Fig.1). For this purpose, a sustainable production concept was developed together with the peripheral equipment manufacturer motan and the Austrian agent Luger. With this concept, the punching waste left over after punching out the deep-drawn capsule bodies is completely fed back into the 7‑layer extrusion line in accordance with all quality limits.
A.B.S. flex containers can be found, where bulk goods have to be stored quickly, efficiently and reliably. This includes the plastics and recycling industry, in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well as in the food, feed and confectionery sectors. As an international manufacturer, A.B.S. has installed over 50,000 silos across the world.
