BEUMER Group will be showcasing its conveyor systems, warehouse management system and extensive customer support at the upcoming Powtech 2014 trade fair for process engineering, analytics and powder and bulk material handling.

BEUMER Group, a full-line supplier for filling, palletising and packaging technology will be presenting its complete expertise at the trade fair. BEUMER’s solutions are tailored to each customer’s specific application, operating environment and handling requirement because these factors influence the behaviour of powders and bulk materials in conjunction with certain materials. For instance, the particles’ size and form, bulk weight, compressibility, cohesive strength, moisture, oil content and type of reaction to atmospheric conditions can affect the flow behaviour, which in turn has a significant effect on the correct design of conveyor systems and filling, palletising and packaging equipment.

BEUMER therefore, plans, builds and installs systems that are matched to the user’s individual requirements down to the last detail, delivering all filling, palletising and packaging equipment from a single source as a systems supplier.

Belt conveyors

BEUMER’s belt conveyors offer economical and sustainable solutions for the conveying of bulk materials with options including curved belt systems featuring an open design as troughed conveyors or in an enclosed design as tubular belt conveyors. These belt conveyors can be optimally matched to the environment, overcoming long distances as well as large height differences by ensuring their optimum line through the terrain and tight horizontal and vertical curves.

BEUMER’s customisation expertise allows the company to combine individual machines and systems using intelligent automation for greater efficiency.

Fillpac bagging system

BEUMER’s fillpac bagging system can be incorporated flexibly into existing packaging lines. Equipped with a calibration-capable scale, fillpac always achieves accurate filling quantities thanks to the electronic weighing unit. Special software enables the weigher to communicate continuously with the filling spouts, enabling users to get the most out of their packaging lines, as it is not necessary to reject bags with incorrect weights from the process.

Paletpac layer palletiser

The BEUMER paletpac high-performance layer palletiser has been completely revamped to stack paper, PE and PP bags on different sized pallets with assured flexibility, accuracy and stability. Redesigned for more efficiency, the paletpac benefits users with improved accessibility, shorter installation time, greater flexibility and lower costs. The palletiser can be fitted with a double belt turning mechanism, allowing bags filled with bulk materials with special flow behaviour to be stacked on pallets gently, quickly and accurately. BEUMER’s paletpac can be easily retrofitted to existing machines.

Robotpac articulated robot

BEUMER’s robotpac is a space-saving, fully automatic articulated robot capable of performing complex palletising and de-palletising tasks reliably and efficiently. A new machine has been added to BEUMER’s stretchhood series for efficient packaging of palletised stacks.

Warehouse management system

BEUMER has also developed a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) designed to meet the main requirements of the bulk materials industry, such as the storage of sensitive substances, batch tracking, and space-saving and cost-efficient warehouse management. Key features of BEUMER’s WMS include an interface to all common ERP systems; warehouse management, material flow system and process control of individual machines; and continuous overview of production and storage facilities at all times, matching them to prevailing requirements.

Powtech 2014 will be held from September 30 to October 2 in Nuremberg. BEUMER will be exhibiting at Powtech 2014 in Hall 1, Booth 135.
