Before the cartoning of the primary packaging, a main application in secondary packaging, the conveyor logistics needed for transport in and out must also be safeguarded. Dynamic, efficient and flexible solutionsfor safe automation are required in order to be competitive.
At the exact moment when covers and flaps on plants must be opened, there are other flaps that should be protected, to avoid contact with high temperatures, for example, such as those that occur while stretch shrink wrapping. http://www.pilz.com Product connectivity and a flexible series connection of safety sensors and control technology not only enable maximum safety for operators, but also ensure the efficiency of the packaging machine.
We offer safe automation solutions for secondary packaging, whether it’s a question of safety sensors, safe small controllers or operating mode selector switches. You can rely on our high level of customer orientation and specialist knowledge of the standards. We’re happy to support you with your requirements.
Increase safety on carton erector
With optical detection on the carton magazine or carton infeed on carton erectors, the TÜV SÜD-certified solution for PL d / SIL 2 prevents an operator from reaching into the machine through the empty material infeed opening and injuring themself. While there is sufficient packaging in the magazine, the opening is covered and it is impossible to reach into the danger zone while the packaging plant is running. As a result, the packaging acts as natural protection and secures the movable guard. If the number of cartons in the magazine reaches or falls below the defined minimum, this will be detected by two optical sensors, which shut down the outputs via the safe small controller PNOZmulti 2 or the modular safety relays myPNOZ. The machine is in stop mode until packaging is again in place.
The combination of optical sensors and safety controller gives companies in the packaging industry an automated solution when it comes to safely monitoring the carton infeed. If the safety circuit is to be created using configuration software, you automate using PNOZmulti 2. The modular safety relays myPNOZ are configured via the hardware sequence. http://www.pilz.de We’ll be happy to advise you on the right solution for you.
