EMMEBI announces the successful installation and commissioning of a fully automated basket handling, de-stacking & packing line at Inex in Brisbane.

We used the most innovative technologies to achieve optimum production efficiency and to facilitate end-to-end material flow from the extrusion area to the shipping and warehouse area.

The full baskets coming from the ageing ovens are unloaded by an automatic system, the layers of profiles are de-stacked and distributed automatically over to the packing station on roller and chain conveyors. The system automatically returns the empty baskets back to their starting-out points.

In the packing area, the single profiles are packed to form a small bundle which is  then wrapped by using stretch film. Subsequently, the various packages will form a master bundle to be eventually wrapped with stretch film. The peculiarity of the system consists in allowing for the bundle to be loaded in a completely automatic way onto a timber base; it then carries on towards a strapping machine which binds the bundle together with the timber base. The strapped master bundle can then be conveyed to the shipping area.
