Benefits to you
Production instead of change-over
The trouble-free and automated processes increase your overalls equipment effectiveness: Even with comprehensive handling parts change-overs, you can start the new batch already after a mere 30-minutes intermediate stop!
Minimum personnel requirement
The UnitXpress modules perform many change-over processes fully automatically and all other processes are accelerated through proactive assistance systems. Even packers with numerous handling parts can be changed over within less than 30 minutes by only one operator and with reproducible results.
Less restrictions in the planning phase
The short change-over times make it possible to use the same product more often and to produce smaller batches. This comes in handy if you don't want to be bound to large storage capacities or if you would even like to realise a just-in-time production depending on the current demand.
New potentials for your brand
Have you limited your bottle sizes or designs due to long change-over times until now? With LineXpress, you can use a large range of packaging variants without running the risk of your production effectiveness suffering from this.
