Marchesini Group announces agenda for 2018 trade shows

The Marchesini Group is getting ready for Achema and two other important national events: Cosmopack, in Bologna 15–18 March and Ipack Ima, in Milan 29 May – 1 June

Farplus C

At Cosmopack, the Marchesini Group will have a spacious booth (hall 20, booth D53-54) where an innovative end-of-line jar packaging system and 5 stand alone machines by Dumek will be showcased.

A team of experts will welcome visitors to demonstrate the machines on show and to illustrate the potential of the group’s new cosmetic division, situated near its headquarters in Pianoro, which will also host Dumek machines.

This business unit is already up and running and will help to make the group even more competitive in a constantly growing marketplace.

The line exhibited will include two solutions that have been recently put on the market: MAV 60, an automatic alternated-motion machine, on which the carton is conveyed upright and Farplus C, an automatic wrapper, available in both the standard version with side guiding belts and in the optimised version to package cosmetics with guiding plates to allow for the dot-seal system.

Compared with the previous version, MAV 60 has a robotic product in-feed and a system that stands the carton upright. These new features improve speed and ergonomics.

The automatic in-feed also ensures precision and delicacy in handling the product, putting it very carefully into the carton, thus avoiding all possible damage. It also means unusually shaped products can be handled.

Farplus C too has a robotic product in-feed and a product bypass system outside the machine to ensure non-stop production, reaching 80 packages a minute.

Farplus C and MAV 60 are connected to each other by a Robocombi, which moves the incoming box onto the in-feed belt that conveys it to the end wrapping station.

Once on the belt, the carton is automatically positioned and is pushed against the film, which is wrapped around it by a comb drive. This type of movement means the exact position of the carton is known so that other processes can be carried out if necessary, plus it prevents the cartons from touching it each other.

The Dumek brand will also be represented by three turbo-emulsifiers, Turbo-mek, with capacity of 25, 200 and 600 litres, a Melter 120 and a homogeniser/dissolver TL 132.

The Turbo-mek vacuum turbo-emulsifiers are designed to process liquid and creamy products such as emulsions (cream and milk products), serums, oils, balms, gels and lotions.

All the functions required to ensure efficient operation of the turbo-emulsifiers are set to the working parameters, and are managed and programmed from the control panel with software developed in-house exploiting Dumek technologies.

Dumek has designed the Melter 120 to mix, distribute and store products and to aid the turbo-emulsifiers in one of the heating phases (watery or fatty).

The TL 132 unit dissolves and homogenises the product (with in-line or recirculation system), which is perfect for processing cold emulsions without using a vacuum.
