Food and Dairy Industry

AUTEFA Solutions develops intralogistic solutions for complex requirements in the field of “food & dairy”.
The key element of these interconnected installation concepts are multi-line and high performance palletizers for central and decentral palletizing tasks (shrinked packs, cartons, trays, plastic containers, bags, cans, barrels etc.)
By multifunctional, fully automatically adjustable forked gripper heads a large number of client-specific layer patterns can be realized.
The material flow is visualized by proven software during the entire process. Machine function and process data are clearly displayed at any time.

Fully automatic sorting installation

The AUTEFA Solutions fully automatic sorting installation has been developed for companies which produce products sort by sort and deliver it mixed in a carton or tray. The repacking process is working according to pre-selected mixing patterns. The automatic sorting installation enables the mixing of Tetra packs sizes from 0,2 l – 1,0 l. With special gripper systems also glass bottles and plastic containers can be handled. By means of exchangeable gripper heads arrangements of 2 x 6 / 2 x 8 / 3 x 9 can be created. The tracking of product data to customers ERP system can be included as well as the machine data recording.

Palletizing system

The AUTEFA Solutions palletizing system is a 2-, 3- or 4- axis modular robot system in portal frame design for palletizing. Individual packs, rows or whole layers can be handled. Also depalletizing of tangible packages is possible.

With the modular system application-specific, custom-made solutions can be generated.

Depending on the required task and performance more robots can be used. For every needed palletizing task various gripper heads can be used as forked gripper heads, clamp gripper, vacuum gripper heads etc. For each specific application, the optimal product range solution will be selected.

Additional tasks as empty pallet and intermediate layer handling can be integrated into the system.

Intermediate Bottle Storage System

Intermediate Bottle Storage System – IBSS for buffering of empty plastic containers. Balancing the different capacity and availability between blow moulder and filler to increase the capacity of the entire line.

  • Dynamic buffer system for oriented PET /HDPE bottles and containers between blow moulder and palletizers or fillers.
  • Storing capacity from 5 min. up to several days.

Bulk glass sweep-off Depalletizer 

The AUTEFA Solutions bulk glass sweep-off Depalletizer takes-off round, oval and square glass, plastic containers and cans of intermediate layers.

Containers are taken directly from the pallet to the bottle exit and moved into the filling process.

Depending on the requested machine capacity, the handling of intermediate layers, trays and pallets can be integrated directly into the take-off head or carried out by a separate robot unit.
