The system planning includes consulting work and engineering of the production lines as well as providing the final offer.
The support includes extensive layout drawings as well as calculation of the machine speed and output, sleeving concepts, carton layouts, palletizing patterns, layer inserts and product sheets
The extensive A+F product range includes traypackers, tray and case erectors, packing and sleeving systems, robot palletizers, layer plate palletizers, conveying systems for products, cases and pallets
Additional purchases of system components are carefully selected and integrated. All are tested at the suppliers premises. Prior to delivery a final acceptance test is performed
Customers can choose from a large variety of PLC control systems
Experienced project managers are assigned to be the key contact for the customer during the lifetime of the project. He will manage all dates, sample materials and final test of the equipment amongst other things
Key system components will be commissioned at A+F and an acceptance test is done with the customer.
Set up and commissioning at the customer’s facilities is done or supervised by experienced A+F service technicians. At the end a final acceptance test is performed to complete the project.
A+F has more than 40 years of experience building machinery and providing plant engineering services for end of line packaging.
Providing complete end of line solutions is a prominent feature of A+F.
More than 40 years of experience in customized line and plant engineering has put its marks on A+F. The company plans and manufactures packaging lines or large parts of complete plants. Taking product specific requirements into account, these services are provided to a large number of industries
Engineering of the line usually starts with the filler and the primary product transport and buffer systems. These are followed by the packaging machines, coding systems, conveying, transport systems for primary product, carton transport with buffering function (if required), optional shrinkwrap stations for cartons, palletizers, pallet wrappers and marking as well as feeding the packed system to storage and stacking systems
Very important when combining the individual system components are central control systems. Here item numbers, best before dates, batch numbers and unit quantities are generated and send to the system components. At the end all necessary information has to be printed on the product lable on the palett
A+F is integrating the various systems, processing the different data formats. Integration of non A+F system components is daily business
A+F offers complete end of line systems, including consulting services, engineering, installation, production start and final acceptance test.
