HAVER & BOECKER will be exhibiting under the motto 'TIME TO INTEGRA' during ACHEMA 2015 at Stand 3.0/F38. Taking centre stage will be the newest generation INTEGRA® filling system for filling into tubular film bags with its complete new design and technical innovations. HAVER & BOECKER will also be showing systems from its subsidiary companies: a Type 84 automatic drum filler from Feige FILLING and a coaxial mixer from SOMMER.
The new HAVER & BOECKER INTEGRA FFS EDITION with its new design.
INTEGRA® stands for stationary, enclosed and complete packaging systems for filling cement, building products, minerals, chemical products, food and feed stuffs. The entire range of the new Form-Fill-Seal design will be ready for market by the end of this year. Here the largest system is designed for speeds of up to 3200 bags/hr.
In addition to speed, the INTEGRA® is also able to handle a broader range of fillable product types, weights, and packaging types and materials. Thus in addition to powders, granulates and micro-granulates, the system is also able to fill liquids and special products (such as flakes or products with pieces) into valve-type or plastic tubular film bags. Every type of packaging can be used independently of shape and material. The weight spectrum ranges from 1 to 50 kg bags and 2000 kg are possible with Big Bags.
The INTEGRA® FFS generation unit to be exhibited is an ISF1: an INTEGRA packing system for filling product into tubular film bags with a free-fall spout. This FFS system is ideal for filling micro-granulated, granulated and powder-type products into plastic bags with a weight of 5 to 25 kg at speeds up to 2200 bags/hr. The high-speed system was developed for filling mass bulk products and is characterised by its high flexibility, process reliability, minimum cleaning requirements and its ease of maintenance.
The ISF1 offers many technical innovations: a new maintenance-free full-bag gripper ensures reliable bag handling and automatic speed optimisation enables efficient results. A photocell within the material flow measures the flow properties. Using the recorded data the machine automatically and optimally sets the highest possible speed. Manual adjustments are no longer necessary.
During the development phase the HAVER & BOECKER experts placed much emphasis on reducing complexity with regards to components and used a new touch-panel to make operation and service easy. The ISF1 has as standard equipment a return spillage drawer that makes the machine especially easy to clean. Two large sized doors allow easy accessibility. Additional diagnostic LEDs allow the operator to see the condition of the system at a glance (blue = ongoing operation, red = fault, white = doors open).
As special equipment, HAVER & BOECKER offers a toolbox for spare parts and tools that is built-in beneath the machine. Thus the machine operator always has all the necessary items for maintenance and machine adjustment readily at hand. The use of servo-motors leads to energy savings.
