Zone-driven conveying solution for cookie producer

05 March 2017

A strategic focus for a cookie producer in the Netherlands is on optimisation which has led the company to implement lean and efficient processes and to invest in intelligent automation solutions. 

The company has invested in intelligent material handling solutions, supplied by Technisch Buro West-Brabant (TBWB), which was asked to design an automation concept with built-in flexibility for the producers palletising operations, which had, traditionally, been performed manually which resulted in a bottleneck for shipping operations.

Biscuit boxes exiting more than ten production lines needed to be processed faster, increasing the palletising capacity to 3,000 boxes per hour. For the transportation of biscuit boxes from the different production lines to the palletisers, the project required a large number of roller conveyors along with automatic palletisers and vertical lifts, which were supplied by Qimarox.

Using Interroll’s latest generation of conveyor modules, TBWB reported the 24V roller conveyors were not only easy to install, but also provided ongoing energy savings for the customer due to the decentralised, zone-driven conveying concept. For inclines and declines, Interroll belt conveyors were used. From the controls side, the new MultiControl allowed fast and easy setup and smooth integration with the PLC.
