The BEUMER Group is showcasing several new solutions at CeMAT 2014, the world’s leading trade fair for intralogistics.

To be held in Hanover from May 19 to 23, CeMAT 2014 will see the BEUMER Group presenting a number of new solutions including a belt tray sorter equipped with new modules and functions, a more efficient drive system with significantly increased efficiency and a completely redesigned machine in its stretch hood series.

Visitors to the trade show will be able to see the 40m long BS 7 BT belt tray sorter in action with BEUMER equipping the machine with a variety of modules and functions to demonstrate how it can accommodate users’ individual requirements.

BEUMER and Danish company Crisplant a/s, another member of the BEUMER Group, are among the world's leading suppliers of sorting and distribution equipment. At its trade fair booth, BEUMER will be showcasing its comprehensive expertise, including fully automatic sortation systems such as the double-density tilt-tray sorter and the Crisplant LS-4000 high-speed loop sorter. These are used throughout the world in postal and distribution centres and enable goods to be sorted quickly and gently. The cross-belt and tilt-tray sorters provide a high level of benefit for the user.

In the area of high-performance sorters the BEUMER Group has developed the new OptiDrive, an efficient force-fit drive system, which offers an extremely economical alternative to conventional asynchronous linear motors.

The BEUMER Group supplies filling, palletising and packaging equipment from a single source. The BEUMER fillpac, for example, can be incorporated flexibly into existing packaging lines. The bagging machine is equipped with a calibratable weigher. The electronic weighing unit ensures that the fillpac always achieves accurate filling quantities. Special software enables the weigher to communicate continuously with the filling spouts, enabling users to get the best out of their packaging lines, as it is not necessary to reject bags with incorrect weights from the process.

BEUMER has completely revamped the BEUMER paletpac high-performance layer palletisers in order to stack paper, PE and PP bags on different sized pallets flexibly, accurately and stably, and now even more efficiently. Users benefit from improved accessibility, shorter installation time, greater flexibility and lower costs. The palletiser can be fitted with a rotary clamp or double belt turning device, which allows bags filled with bulk materials with special flow behaviour to be stacked on pallets gently, quickly and accurately. BEUMER’s Customer Support specialists can easily retrofit existing palletisers with this solution.

BEUMER also offers the robotpac, a space-saving, fully automatic articulated robot, which is able to perform complex palletising and depalletising tasks reliably and efficiently. Containers such as bags, cartons, boxes, canisters and trays can be stacked safely and economically. BEUMER has developed appropriate, flexibly exchangeable gripper systems for every packaged product.

BEUMER has also added a new machine to its stretch hood series for efficient packaging of palletised stacks, redesigning the high-performance packaging system with more optimised components.

In the field of conveying and loading equipment BEUMER provides information on belt conveyor systems with horizontal and vertical curves, belt bucket elevators, heavy-duty belt bucket elevators for particularly large delivery rates and heights, and steel cell conveyors fitted with chains or belts for clinker.

Visitors to the trade fair will also learn about BEUMER Customer Support, which ensures that the user’s systems have a high level of availability, and optimises existing machinery with the latest software updates. Located all over the world, the support experts provide professional repair and maintenance, deliver spare parts and carry out customer training.

BEUMER will be presenting their solutions at the CeMAT 2014 in Hall 27, Booth H32.
