INDEVA® for the Beverage industry
24 June 2015
Beverage Industry needs maximum efficiency along the whole production line.
The Beverage industry is present in almost all countries of the world with plants where all production phases are carried out by means of automatic lines from blow moulding to filling, capping, labelling and at the end of the line also packaging either using shrinkwrappers or cardboard wrappers.
Although most companies are using modern automatic bottling lines, load handling is still carried out manually in most cases for lifting cardboard sheet packs to feed “Wrap around case packers”, or reels to be loaded on Shrinwrapping or Labelling machines .
Also Companies in the beverage industry, therefore, need manual load handling aids in order to safeguard their employees’ health and comply with all recent Regulations and Directives on ergonomics and safety in workplaces as well as improve overall productivity at the same time.
It is exactly for these tasks that large and small companies in the beverage industry install INDEVA® manipulators. Scaglia INDEVA®, in fact, is well known for our great expertise in designing reliable custom solutions with custom designed gripping tools to suit loads of different sizes, shapes and weights.
Sometimes an INDEVA® is installed to replace mere manual handling, but other times it replaces a traditional lifting equipment such as an hoists or a traditional industrial pneumatic manipulator.
An INDEVA® manipulator offer various advantages compared to traditional lifting equipment: it is 4 times faster than a hoist, it does not require to keep a button pressed all the time while handling the load and it moves to the speed required by the operator and not at a fixed speed. Compared to a pneumatic manipulator an INDEVA® allows for more precise movements and load positioning, with no impact and no inertia forces to oppose, thus resulting much more ergonomic, user friendly and fast.
An INDEVA® counter balances the load weight automatically and immediately with no need to select a different weight setting each time the load weight changes. For all these reasons an INDEVA® manipulator has been defined as an” extension of human arm”
