Microline creates packaging system for delicate paper products
Microline has developed a unique feeding system for interfolded products to remain soft in the tissue industry and secondary packaging.
The system was developed on Microlines ROM 600, the medium-speed machine dedicated to automatic case packing. This machine handles case pick-up, erection and filling operations and close the case with adhesive tape or hot melt system, therefore combining efficiency, sturdiness and practicality.
Despite the system being uniquely developed on the ROM 600, it can be fitted to various other machines in the Microline product line-up. These machines can be configured to work simultaneously as groups to ensure proper orientation.
The result of this is that once the soft tissue has passed the upstream cutting station, the products can be automatically introduced into a divider to be arranged in collation patterns of up to five parallel lines. Tissues are then grouped, stacked and inserted into the correct case.
The machines ability to be concise and quick ensures that it can process 120 pieces per minute without compromising performance.
