Shemesh Automation introduces new buckets packaging line

USA – Automated packaging solutions provider, Shemesh Automation has launched BuckIT TKS25, a complete turnkey buckets line that offers advantages to its customers’ production.

The BuckIT TKS25 packaging line is completely automated and is described as the “ultimate feature-heavy, complete end-to-end packaging line” for liquid and solid products in buckets.

Across its applications, the line produces up to 25 buckets per minute with a 3,500ml volume, and can handle many different bucket specifications, loads and final products.

The line encompasses design, manufacturing, integration, installation, servicing, parts, delivery and training.

This results in “streamlined processes” and the removal of traditional bottlenecks associated with complex packaging lines.

Shai Shemesh, president of Shemesh Automation, said: “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.

“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.”

The line requires two operators and it features low changeover downtime, raw materials waste and space requirement on the factory floor – leading to ongoing cost savings.

He added: “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.”

In January this year, the company introduced a complete robotics-enhanced packaging line for cosmetics.

Shemesh Automation says that TKS-C60 is designed to handle the entire packaging process—feeding, filling, capping, labeling, 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.

It consists of three ABB Delta Robots for product unscrambling, multi-capping, and case packing, respectively, as well as an integrated advanced vision system.

The line features two lanes and is reportedly capable of packaging different products on the same line by setting up the requisite recipes through a smart HMI screen – a feature expected to improve flexibility.

This is said to be compounded by its ability to identify screw caps, snap-on caps, pump/spray caps, and various other cap types of differing dimensions, alongside the potential to install pucks loaders and unloaders for shaped products.

Its linear feed, as opposed to a rotary one, is expected to smoothen the changeover and cleaning process, with fewer parts to navigate.
