Syntegon presents flexible systems for cookies and bars, an Innovative Intelligent Direct Handling system that offers format flexibility for cookies and crackers, a high-speed bar system for maximum efficiency with new wireless HMI, and sustainable packaging for cookies and bars made of paper and mono-material.
The new Syntegon IDH is at the heart of a line that flexibly packages cookies and crackers in trays and flow wraps made of mono-material. A new pick-and-place technology with integrated linear motors ensures gentle product hand-ling. Linear motors also feature in various feeding modules in both lines to prevent product damage during handling and boost flexibility. In addition to gentle handling, the system for bars that will be on show offers high levels of sustainability and digitalization. The line is equipped with a paper-ON-form forming shoulder and wraps bars in paper before placing them in glueless formed cartons in the TTM1 topload cartoner with an integrated lock-style forming station. Moreover, Syntegon will present a new wireless Human Machine Interface (HMI) that allows operators to access all available information and digital services at any time.
Another solution launched at interpack is the new wireless HMI 4.0 – a new feature that boosts efficiency, especially in large, fully automated systems. It allows operators to control and monitor the entire line via a single interface.
