The essence of efficiency
Just how much of a dry section can you get into one block? In our opinion, all of it! The proof is ErgoBloc D – the compact efficiency package that handles all steps from the individual container to the finished pallet. How is that possible? By taking several proven Krones machines and combining them in a new way in one continuous line. This incorporates:
- Variopac Pro packer with attached shrink tunnel
- Accucase conveyor section
- Modulpal palletising system with Robobox grouping station and automatic layer pad handling
Three components in one block – that’s all you need for superb quality packing, grouping and palletising of containers.
Increased efficiencyThe ErgoBloc D dispenses with buffer and conveyor sections almost completely. Instead, it concentrates squarely on functions that add value and condenses them into a unique efficiency package.
Economy in all areasThe dry section block operates in the smallest of spaces with a minimal staff requirement and low energy consumption. What is more, the ingenious machine technology reduces spare parts requirements, permits the use of particularly thin films and ensures the entire block enjoys a long service life.
Although the dry section block performs to the highest standards, in all other aspects, it cleverly represents an exercise in modesty. While it scores conclusively with its high level of efficiency, reliable operation and outstanding user-friendliness, it requires little material and energy to run, is quick and easy to maintain and adapts flexibly to all new types of packaging. And because it has virtually no need of conveyor or buffer sections, you’re assured shorter routes and more space in your production hall!
The automated layer pad feed enhances the high efficiency of the system. Feeding the layer pads in beneath the shutter gripper head ensures rapid layering. Two variants are available: Either flat layer pad sheets or layer pads from rolls can be processed. The layer pad pallets are automatically fed via the pallet conveyor.
Variopac Pro – tried and tested and now even betterOpenClose
As a true classic, the Variopac Pro has already sold in its thousands. But as it is always possible to make something that’s already good even better, the packaging star has received a number of ingenious new features for its role in the ErgoBloc D:
Quick-change handling parts now increase availability, while improved temperature control reduces energy consumption in the shrink tunnel by around 15 per cent. In addition, the servo driven cutters handle films of up to 25 μm in thickness, thereby opening up huge potential for savings.
