Beumer stretch hood A
Beumer has upgraded its stretch hood pallet packaging system. The stretch hood A includes an intuitive menu system on the machine control via a soft-touch panel, an ergonomically designed workplace for the operator and material-friendly transporting of the film in the machine. The company says the system also features improved system performance and needs less floor space.
The hood is accessible without a platform and steps, so maintenance work, such as changing the blades or the sealing bars, is handled at floor level. The operator opens a drawer, providing access to blades and sealing bars, and the machine is automatically brought to a standstill to protect the operator. This removes the need to move subassemblies to a maintenance position.
The operator can feed in the film without tools, which the company says will mean reductions to tooling and conversion times.
A film transport system feeds the previously created film hood into the system. On its way to the crimping and stretching unit, the sealing seam on the film hood cools down so that it can be crimped without losing time. This removes the need for a cooling unit and saves energy.
The operator panel uses pictograms to guide the user through the machine control menus. The panel also gives the operator access to all required training programs. The system is controlled by a Siemens SIMATIC S7-300.
The hood, which can be connected to existing conveying systems, uses energy-saving motors and has low compressed air requirements.
