In its repack area, Müller receives products including its Müller Corner ranges in single-flavour cases and repacks them into the mixed-flavour cases favoured by many smaller retail outlets. Space is at a premium, so a small footprint was an important requirement.
Versatility was also essential, as the machine has to handle many different sizes of tray, and it was also crucial for the machine operator to be able to select the required tray size quickly and easily.
The compact Linkx A3 tray erector, which can handle almost any type of board tray blank up to A3 size, features a touchscreen interface for size changes. It uses Siemens servo drives and controls for all major motion axes. It can achieve a throughput of 40 trays a minute, even with the largest trays.
