Shemesh Automation Launches buckets packaging line

Shemesh Automation launches BuckIT TKS25, a complete turnkey buckets line that offers advantages to its customers’ production throughput across many of the world’s key industries – from food and beverage to chemicals, paints, cosmetics, wet wipes, and more.

Shemesh’s BuckIt packaging line is completely automated and is the ultimate feature-heavy, complete end to end packaging line for liquid and solid products in buckets.

The line includes the following Shemesh-made machines:

  • Automatic buckets denester with vertical stack servo-driven magazine carousel
  • For wet wipes – SAS-J automatic buckets stuffer
  • Stratum-J gear-pumps buckets filling machine (servo piston, net weight, flow meter also available)
  • Sealpro-J conduction sealing machine for buckets
  • Automatic bucket lids denester with vertical stack servo-driven magazine carousel and bucket lids fastener
  • Carolus full wraparound buckets labeler with orientation
  • Relentless-M buckets case packing machine
  • Appolon robotic palletizer

Across its applications the line produces up to 25 buckets per minute with a 3,500-ml volume, and can handle many different bucket specifications, loads, and final products. As shown, it can also be modified for the packing of jumbo nonwoven wet wipes in buckets.

The key advantages of this line include having design, manufacturing, integration, installation, servicing, parts, delivery, and training all under one umbrella. This results in streamlined processes, the removal of traditional bottlenecks associated with complex packaging lines, and the support of Shemesh’s worldwide customer support and machinery service and repair model. Having one contract contact point providing all integral services to your business results in cost effective end-to-end solutions.

The line only requires two operators, from nested buckets to pallets of filled, sealed, capped, and labelled buckets in boxes, and it features low changeover downtime, raw materials waste, and space requirement on the factory floor – leading to ongoing cost savings when compared to other multi-supplier lines.

All of the machines in the line are Industry 4.0 ready (potentially tapping into endless possibilities through the use of near infinite data), have FDA-approved piping, banner sensors and Siemens PLC, HMI, and motors.

“With BuckIT TKS25, we offer our customers significant competitive advantages, but one of the absolute clearest is the ability to purchase entire production lines under the ‘one umbrella’ banner,” said Shai Shemesh, president of Shemesh Automation. “This means that all of our packaging production lines are created by experts who have come from one of the world’s most exciting and advanced technology sectors. Any ongoing technical support and repairs can also be covered by our engineers and partners, making us a worthy supplier for packaging production lines that will make measurable long-term differences to our customers’ products and profit margins.”
