Packaging and Food & Beverage Technology

Packaging and Food Industry

High performance, flexible automation is in demand

The demands on your machines and equipment are permanently increasing: smaller lot sizes, more flexible product and format changes, as well as higher production speed. Modular machines and equipment with an integrated automation system that is just as modular provide more cost efficiency and flexibility.

 

For more efficiency: integrated complete solution

 

Integrated complete solutions are the core of SIGMATEK's expertise: Process and motion control with integrated Safety and drive technology, as well as robotics. Our software supports the mechatronic approach and in doing so, makes your life easier. With our industry know-how in primary and secondary packaging, the food and beverage, as well as pharmaceutical industries, we find the best and most efficient solution for you.

Packed Fast

Packed Fast

Up to 350 mini chocolates per minute are packed in portions with metal/paper foil by Lareka. The compact SIGMATEK system is easy to expand and maintain.

Separate, Count, Feed ...

Separate, Count, Feed ...

Work with 800 cycles per minute with the friction feeder "Motion Feeder" from RonTech. With the integrated solution, the hard and software engineering is reduced considerably.

The Right HMI

The Right HMI

For control, visualization and operation, a wide range of HMIs are available to choose from. There are also panels that are sealed against spray water with front-side IP65 protection.

Open System Solution with Multiple Axes

Open System Solution with Multiple Axes

... for transporting and supplying up to 500 bars per minute from Greymans Paktech. The openness of SIGMATEK systems makes is easy to integrate third-party systems as required.

Hard Real-time

Hard Real-time

Hundreds of I/Os and several synchronously operating axes communicate with the compact cartoning machine from Rackupack in hard real time over the VARAN bus. Per minute, up to 1,800 individual products can be packed into 225 units of 8 pieces each.

Automation Compactly Packaged

Automation Compactly Packaged

Feed system from hmh Hiddink: With a compact system solution, a control and servo drives can be integrated into the machine making an external control cabinet unnecessary.

Whether producing, dosing, filling, forming, cutting, sealing, labeling, stamping, sorting, inlaying, boxing or palletizing - for individual packaging machines, complex systems or packaging lines – the extensive SIGMATEK system toolkit supports modular, open and OMAC PackML-compliant machine concepts:

Your Benefits with us as Your Automation Partner

The wide selection of our scalable hardware components enable a flexible and customer-specific configuration of the automation system, which thanks to its compactness, saves space in the control cabinet. With high-performance processors, I/O response times under 100 µs, IP65 HMIs, integrated Safety and energy efficient drive technology, your machines are well equipped. The high demands on dynamics, acceleration, start/stop cycles and perfect synchronization of the individual process and motion sequences can be perfectly coordinated using real-time Ethernet.

Our integrated engineering platform LASAL (IEC 61131-3-Standard) makes mechatronic engineering possible. Object-oriented programming with graphic representation provides clear and modular software design.

Predefined industry-specific function components such as printmark control, decoiler or robot kinematics provide engineering efficiency. FDA requirements on machines in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries can be met with LASAL. With web and VNC servers, remote access with smartphones or tablets is possible. Comfortable software updates with USB boot sticks reduce maintenance.

The high transmission rate of real-time Ethernet communication with the VARAN bus results in increased performance, higher precision and reliability. Different network topologies provide freedom in project development.

One system supplier provides you with the advantage of having only one contact partner for all automation tasks. As a mid-sized, owner-operated company, we can quickly and flexibly react to  market demands. With our many years of industry experience and extensive engineering know-how, we are able to put you ahead of the market.

Thanks to the open system architecture, you can easily include production and packaging systems equipped with our automation systems in production lines. Vision systems, robots and Pick & Place units can be seamlessly integrated.
