The Direct-Access-Technology allows direct access to the strap in the strap drive. The strap drive can be opened very quickly without tools by pressing an ergonomic control lever. The defective strap or a resulting disturbance can be easily dealt with in seconds. After closing the strap drive work can continue immediately.
The SMB mono-frame ensures high geometric precision of the functional modules to each other. The machine is clearly more resilient to external force (people, conveyer vehicles, etc.) than with conventional construction methods. The machine frame encloses the functionally relevant mono-frame additionally like a full face helmet.
The Anti-Strap-Loss-Function ensures that the strap no longer gets lost in the machine and is permanently available for the function modules. The machine is thus resilient to malfunction in the production process, which in turn increases the machine availability.
Work safety at high production speed is often achieved by means of safety devices. Alternatively, the SAO design combines all interests in one solution, i.e. work safety at high productivity via a safe design of the assembly group. Thus, eliminating inconvenient and cost-intensive protective devices becomes possible. Your advantage: Safe, direct operator access in case of product malfunctions during production actively reduces your accident quota and increases the productivity of your business.
The new strapping machines by SMB need up to 50% less energy than conventional machines.
Energy recovery, highly efficient drives, standard on-board voltage and also low-friction mechanical components are attributes of the new SMB technology.
During fully automatic processing, an exact and repeatable product movement is very important for high-quality packaging with strapping.
Some applications require precise positioning of the strapping band into a groove or recess, while others require different precisely coordinated alignment functions - some of them also during transport through the machine.
With the new Exact Product Path (EPP) technology, the SMB strapping machine is largely self-sufficient, the simplified settings are intuitively solved. In addition, the machine is robust against changing ambient conditions such as temperature or wear.
Contains all the features of SMB SMART TOUCH,
with the following additional benefits :
Easily save up to 5000 recipes and settings via USB
Effortless software update via USB
Integrated service messaging at every maintenance interval, including contact address
Extensive state analysis of the machine, e.g. I / O visualization including actual value display directly in the circuit diagram
Easy remote access via Ethernet, integrated web server
Technical documentation of the system can be displayed and retrieved
Compared to SMART TOUCH, this is the ideal foundation for preventive maintenance, advanced predictive maintenance, and future process improvements. So your systems are fit for all your future challenges.
For fully automatic production lines, there is an interruption during production time when the strapping band is empty, but the staff is not on site, resulting in significant downtimes at high costs.
In order to avoid this case, we developed the automatic change of the strapping band ASC – Automatic Strap Change – and presented this technology for the first time inside of the Krones Evolite on the occasion of the Interpack trade fair in 2011.
In addition, this technology provides the ability to automatically apply a second strap in the event of a fault which consequently improves the reliability of the entire system.
As of now, SMB ASC is available as an option for many SMB strapping machines.
The most important basis for perfect strapping is package compaction that is ideally adapted to the respective product. In the ICS - Intelligent Compression System, the parameters for this are set via sophisticated sensors or recipe information from the higher-level control system. The modules have a high performance for short cycle times and at the same time are very economical in energy consumption because they are electrically driven on the basis of GreenTech.
The most important thing for you as the operator is when your packaging machine runs as long as possible with high availability as at the beginning of the product life. This characteristic is achieved by simple and robust design, targeted selection of suitable materials and as few actuators as possible.
This enables us to clearly distinguish ourselves from the usual machines of our competitors. For you this means a noticeably higher Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
