A new world first for liquid paints
Known as the “Lavelli A21” (after its creator Luigi Lavelli), the two twin machines conceived in unison with Tecnopails' client, are specifically designed to produce the ultimate packaging solution and effectively minimise any operator's actions to that of just placing a lid, with latch, onto a container. The operation of packing the ready-stacked lids—currently the only action remaining for an operator to handle—has also been predesigned to be fully integrated into the existing system using IoT and industry 4.0 technology.
The system utilises two stations, where operators can load lids and latches in a totally safe environment, even whilst the machine is in motion. The machine then automatically assembles both lid and latch, pairs them, and then uniformly stacks them. The smart system is programmed to automatically detect the orientation, in which any handle has been positioned, eliminating the necessity for the latches to be stored in a precise order by the operator. Additionally, each machine comes equipped with a user-friendly touch screen to facilitate the GUI interface.
