Total efficiency for the food & packaging industries – FlexLink shows how at Scanpack.

News   •   Oct 05, 2015 08:30 CEST

The aims on reducing production cost, increasing the speed of new product introductions and the management of fluctuating demands are well known to brand owners and producers in the competitive food and dairy industries. On top of this is the aims of consumer and brand protection by means of food safety and good working conditions.

At Scanpack, Scandinavia’s leading packaging exhibition, FlexLink will demonstrate solutions and know-how from the bread, cheese and dairy industries. The unique combination of tools for efficient production flow, the new hygienically designed conveyor platform and refined functions are examples of where the requirements of manufacturers and consumers meet.

Hygienically designed conveyor platforms Visitors will experience the new generation of hygienically designed modular wide belt conveyors, the WLXH. It is suited for processes where there is direct contact with food and brings new levels of hygiene and efficiency to the work floor. The design complies to the EHEDG design guidelines and simplifies the risk analysis according to HACCP.

Consumer safety and product shelf life starts with the product and the production.FlexLink’s solutions are designed for consistent cleaning results, easy access during cleaning and short drying time. Integrated cleaning-in-place (CIP) solutions bring cleaning processes to new levels of consistence and easiness.

Visitors will be demonstrated also the complete range of state of the art conveyor platforms for the packaging process and downstream to carton handling and end-of-line with structures in stainless steel or aluminum.

Complete solutions
FlexLink offers turnkey solutions including pre-studies, solutions design, layouts, integration and after sales services. To manufacturers requiring efficient production systems will be demonstrated 3D production flow simulations – for early verification of the systems design and capacity.

“Customers from the food industries give us strong feedback, emphasizing the users’ perspectives on efficiency and production cleanliness. We look forward meeting the industry at Scanpack” comments Mattias Byström, Managing Director of FlexLink.

Emballage 2014 – FlexLink shows how to reduce manufacturer’s total cost

News   •   Nov 17, 2014 08:00 CET

“A close dialogue with major brand owners and food manufacturers was an essential element in the development of our new wide conveyor platform, WLX. Users of the new platform see the end result in operational efficiency and good product safety. From our side, we are particularly happy with the feedback we get and the immediate strong sales” comments Tommy Karlsson, Innovation Manager at FlexLink.

Improved cleanliness, less cleaning time

The new wide belt conveyor (WLX) is clean, safe, and silent and the ergonomics are well served for. Pockets and crevices which collect dirt have been eliminated and the design is made safe for operators thanks to minimal openings and the absence of sharp points and edges.

An example of the good operator ergonomics is that the conveyor platform is equipped with an integrated chain lifting function, providing easy access to the interior of the conveyor. All parts are designed for quick and efficient cleaning, meaning the time needed for cleaning is minimized, less operators are required and the cleaning results meet the highest demands.

Attention has been paid to ensure the noise level is low, providing great benefit to the factory environment. 

Once installed, downtime of the conveyor is minimal due to the robust design, in addition to minimal power, water and detergent consumption, all helping to lower the total cost of ownership.

“In 2015, we will launch the next step of this development enabling even higher levels of hygiene and food safety applicable for direct food contact in accordance with the EHEDG guidelines” Tommy adds.

Less investment per installation

The performance of the X65 conveyor platform offers substantial benefits compared to the industry standards of today. Göran Abbestam, Product Manager at FlexLink explains: "The doubled strength of the conveyor has a dramatic effect on the service life and maintenance intervals. In addition, line layouts can be made simpler as fewer drives and transfers are required and the maximum conveyor length is considerably increased. For the factories, this means less complexity and a lower cost of installation."

The X65 conveyor is designed for low friction, low power consumption and a long service life. In addition, FlexLink is introducing new high efficient drive technology to further reduce power consumption. Dependent on the application and choice of drive unit, power consumption is 8-44% less compared to previous high efficiency drive units by FlexLink.

Maintenance intervals for X65 conveyors can be more than double that of the standards of today. The speed capacity is also the double compared to previous conveyor generations – 120 m/min – a capacity that meets tomorrow’s higher requirements on line speed and reduced cost per produced unit.

Reduced engineering time

The FlexLink Design Tool make the design work efficient and its embedded simulation capability verifies the line capacity and function at an early stage. With a smart drag and drop functionality, three dimensional layouts with real life appearance are safely and quickly made. Underlying documentation such as spare parts lists is automatically connected.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Innovation and Sustainability are the keys for FlexLink´s mission to increase manufacturers’ production efficiency. “All our development activities are geared towards making our customers’ production processes as efficient and sustainable, thus profitable, as can be – from the design phase throughout the service life” concludes Tommy Karlsson.
