Packaging Connections published the following piece about Shemesh’s complete robotics-enhanced bottling line for cosmetics products with the aim of reducing downtime, lowering expenses, and preventing the complexities of integrating machinery. You can read the original article here.
Shemesh has launched the TKS-C60 complete robotics-enhanced packaging line for cosmetics, which is designed to handle the entire packaging process—feeding, filling, capping, labelling, case packing and palletizing cosmetics products of all shapes and sizes.
The TKS-C60 ensures a seamless, uninterrupted bottling line for a range of products from creams and foundations to fragrances and nail polish at a rate of 60 bottles per minute. The line consists of five ABB Delta Robots – two on the product unscrambling station, two for accurate multi-capping and one for case packing – as well as an integrated advanced vision system. All manufactured by one team, to maximize productivity and minimize downtime.
This smart technology is manufactured from high grade, robust stainless steel. Two lanes offer greater flexibility, with the capability to pack different products on the same line simply by setting up the requisite recipes via a smart HMI screen.
The linear rather than rotary feed means there are fewer parts for faster and easier changeovers and cleaning. It can identify cap types of any dimension – screw caps, snap-on caps, pump/spray caps and more. For shaped products, the line can also include pucks loaders and unloaders as well – offering maximum flexibility.
Adapted to work with corrosive products as well as flammable liquids – such as nail polish remover- the TKS-C60 supports global manufacturing regulations, is Industry 4.0 ready and offers ATEX protection standards in explosive atmospheres.
Shai Shemesh, president of Shemesh Automation, says, “In developing the TKS-C60 we have poured years of engineering knowhow into solving a genuine pain point for our cosmetics customers: The ability to efficiently pack multiple product types with one smart line.”
He continued, “From consultation to design-and-build and ultimately service, we always aim to offer a one-stop-shop to our customers. The TKS-C60 is a fantastic example of how the ability to source an end-to-end packaging solution, enhanced by the very latest robotic technology, from one trusted supplier can unlock major savings for our customers in both time and money.”
