OCME S.r.l will showcase their revolutionary new patented DryBlock system at their Parma Headquarters in September during their Open House. OCME S.r.l is a world-leading Italian manufacturer of packaging, filling, handling and palletising systems for the beverage and consumer products industries.
The DryBlock system combines the entire dry part of the production filling line into a single, integrated and synchronised monoblock. The system has various modules including a labeller, packaging machine (shrink wrapper, trayformer, wrap-around, pick and place) and a palletising module that typically consists of a layer forming unit and one or more robots or alternatively traditional palletisers.
The DryBlock system rationalises the product flow, leading to the elimination of accumulation, thereby minimising friction and contact between containers. This reduces the risk of damage to the product even when dealing with ultra-light, fragile, delicate and unstable containers.
The DryBlock system offers several benefits including increased efficiency, reduced cost with a single operator for the entire line, up to 36% reduction in energy consumption, substantial space reduction due to elimination of buffering/accumulation conveyors, noise reduction due to a reduction of components and accumulation and high level of flexibility with format changes automated for a wide range of bottle sizes and shapes. The system can also be retrofitted to a majority of existing lines, and integrated with a wide range of labellers or sleevers.
OCME S.r.l. is represented in Oceania by HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies .
