Packaging designers are constantly thinking up remarkable new packaging solutions that not only protect the product but are also intended to awaken our impulse to buy at the point of sale. Only producers with the right mix of in-house production and suitable components from other suppliers can meet the needs of this market. To achieve the level of flexibility and reliability required, Beck Packautomaten has long relied on conveyor technology modules from MK.
The conveyors are designed to meet every requirement and the areas of use are multifaceted. From small and light products of just a few grams up to full rolls of carpet weighing up to 100kg per role, MK conveyors were able to demonstrate their strengths in every challenge. One of the biggest benefits of MK products is the variety of its system. Using the modular aluminium profile technology as the basis, every function of modern factory automation can be implemented with ease. “The system suits us very well,” says Marco Corrado, who was responsible for the design and feasibility study of the conveyor construction at Beck Packautomaten. “We can build the exact conveyor that we need, practically like you could with Lego.”
Beck can also use its MK conveyors for the most varied environmental conditions. Even with the abrasive contaminants produced when working with insulation boards, the MK products managed to operate effectively. And at the other end of the spectrum, Beck also uses MK conveyors for very clean environments with cleanroom conditions.
That is exactly what has brought MK so much success in the market for 50 years. On the one hand, MK offers a modular and sophisticated technical conveyor system based on its aluminium profile technology. On the other, it has a particular and distinct expertise in the area of conveyor technology for creating solutions that deviate from the standard. Another benefit of MK products for Beck Packautomaten are the proportionally low installation dimensions of the MK conveyors. The Beck machines are the most compact ones with their capabilities on the market. MK also supplies small and short conveyors with a tail diameter of 22mm or with a knife edge starting from a diameter of 10mm. “These small conveyors are perfect for us, because we can integrate them directly into the machines,” explains Corrado.
He concludes: “We have been very happy with the MK conveyors, and we look forward to relying on MK products for our machines in the future.”
