Format change detection with RFID
The quality requirements of globally leading manufacturers of premium chocolate include not only raw materials and manufacturing processes, but also product packaging. Perfectly packaged chocolate bars without a single defect are a must. Frequent format changeovers are a particular challenge. LoeschPack has met this challenge elegantly with their newest version of the two-stage version of the LTM-DUO fold wrapping machine.
This relies on format changeover parts with a fixed stop and proven Balluff RFID for automatic interchangeable part detection. The benefits are passed to the user, who profits from extremely short setup times and significantly improved machine flexibility in format changeover.
Christoph Krombholz, Marketing Manager at LoeschPack, says: „The packaging machine doesn‘t start until all the components are in their correct location. This makes misplacements virtually impossible.“
