Eversfrank Group invests in packaging line

The Eversfrank Group sets great importance to always using the most modern technologies for its production processes. For this reason, modernization and automation activities are regularly carried out at all locations.  On the one hand, this reduces the workload of the production staff, and on the other, customers can be offered more advanced and sustainable print products.

As part of these measures, a new technical system was installed at the Meldorf site at the end of 2021 which will make a decisive contribution to relieving the processing lines of the printing presses of internal logistics processes. This investment involves a fully automatic pallet packaging system from Mosca, as well as conveyor technology from Blume Rollen.

This new technical addition enriches the production process with new functions.  In the future, with a pallet throughput of up to 75 pallets/hour, strapping and wrapping programs can be configured and specifically adapted to each pallet and product.

The integrated weighing station, which is equipped with the latest scanning technology, documents the actual weights on the delivery papers and meaningfully rounds off the goods tracking system.

Before the investment in the packaging line, the pallets with the finished printed products were covered with wooden frames or Euro pallets and then sealed with steel strapping. The new line now uses recyclable cardboard covers and PET strapping throughout and thus gets by with significantly more sustainable materials. The machine also saves up to 40% of packaging film per pallet. The reason for this is that the line has a rotary winder with pre-stretching device that stretches the film by up to 400%. This means that from now on, less packaging material has to be procured and transported. This is also very beneficial to the environment.

Overall, it can be stated that the new investment brings numerous advantages that will certainly pay off in the future.
