BEUMER stretch hood A receives strong feedback

Published by
World Cement,

The BEUMER Group has unveiled its refinement of the proven high-capacity packaging system at the "interpack 2014" trade fair in the form of the new BEUMER stretch hood A.

Since then the intralogistics provider has received excellent customer feedback regarding the packaging system. The specialists optimised the new BEUMER stretch hood A in respect to function, economy and ergonomics.

"Our new BEUMER stretch hood A makes things really easy for the operator", is how Volker Feldmeyer, Business Development Manager in the BEUMER Group, sums up the product.

"After closely scrutinising the needs of customers in the market together with sales, our developers came to the question: How can we develop a packaging system that meets user expectations, while working at the highest level and excelling against the competitor products", explains Feldmeyer. "To this end, we brought not only customers but also packaging and pallet manufacturers on board".

The aim for BEUMER involved developing a packaging system that is even more user friendly. That means a specially developed BEUMER Group Human Machine Interface (HMI), a touch panel with optimised user interface and graphic navigation, is used. Video sequences show operators how easily the machine can be handled. This easily understandable and intuitive interaction concept helps them to define much more efficient workflows at the machine. The BEUMER stretch hood A removes the need for a platform or steps. Any maintenance work that is required can be done from the ground without entering the machine, thereby improving safety and making work easier. And because sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor for companies - especially due to rising energy and raw material costs - BEUMER has opted for low electricity and compressed air use in the technology's application.
