The show will be the global launch of a new, innovative extension to our present offer, suited for the food and fast moving consumer goods industries. Feedback from field test tells us the new product will set radically new standards.
FlexLink will also for the first time be showing the latest development in high capacity balancing of production flows. The new DMT™ technology, for diverting, merging and balancing flows at as high rates as 1,000 products per minute, is capable of handling a large variety of products. The balancing is made in a continuous motion, gently also for sensitive products and with substantial improvements on the line throughput. The cream of the cake is that changeovers between different product sizes are practically eliminated.
At the booth, FlexLink will show case Youtilize®, the production efficiency toolbox. Youtilize is a suite of functions helping operators, production engineers and management to improve production efficiency by monitoring line efficiency, conveyor and equipment in real time. It provides accurate measures on production, fact based data on bottle necks and root causes – all necessary for minimizing the total cost of ownership.
