The food industry is one of Elettric80's core businesses. Deeply diversified in regards to the types of installations, products and factories, the food industry requires systems with a high degree of flexibility for automation.
From this point of view, the know-how and the features of the solutions designed by Elettric80 offer specific benefits to the food industry. Our robotic palletizers are directly connected to the packaging lines and are integrated with our laser guided vehicles for pallet handling of finished products, thus reducing the need for manual forklifts.
Often multiple lines can be run by one or two wrappers and labellers, reducing the complexity of the system. This element increases flexibility while simultaneously offering the possibility of adding additional production lines in the future.
With our full range of robotic palletization islands, Turbo Eagle, Condor, and Dragon, we can handle all kinds of applications based on the size, speed of the line, and the products to be treated.
The LGVs for warehouse automation are vehicles for single pallets, capable of handling the wide range of SKUs. Based on the application, we use the most suitable shelving unit configurations: drive-in, selective and with shuttles.
In addition to providing end-to-end line systems, all the way up to the truck loading, Elettric80 improves the performance of our customers' lines by bringing packaging materials to the line when required.
Our SMART Decision Maker software, SDM, automatically manages product storage, and uses several segregation rules to efficiently manage storage space; for example, it is possible to define SKU-based rules to store the product by expiry date or to automatically separate a given commodity into refrigerated areas or dedicated areas for allergenic ingredients.
The compatibility of Elettric80’s solutions with the food industry is one of the reasons Tetra Pak has chosen Elettric80 as a global partner.
