SIG has partnered with ProLeiT, automation and process control systems, to offer producers advanced production technology and integrated software for food, beverage and dairy producers.

ProLeiT’s specialty is Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), so that manufacturers can automate and control their production processes. 

IoT is increasing

The partnership allows both companies to combine their expertise for the joint development of MES products for the food and beverage industry. 

Digitization is an important issue for all companies today, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is constantly increasing in scope and relevance​,” said Thomas Wunderlich, VP, sales, dairies, beverages, ProLeiT. 

It’s crucial for us to work with partners who develop technologies and strategies together with us when implementing application scenarios. We look forward to opening a new chapter in MES development together with SIG​." 

Daryoush Sangi, head of production engineering and strategic partnerships, SIG, added the company is continually working to deliver smarter filling lines and technical services. 

Using IoT-enabled systems, data and automation, it is transforming filling plants into intelligent, connected factories to increase OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), flexibility and reduce filling costs. 

Robotic Magazine

For example, SIG has developed a Robotic Magazine (R-CAM) for high speed lines, which can fill up to 24,000 carton packs per hour.

R-CAM consists of a pallet magazine and an unpacking station. The pallet magazine has space for a Euro pallet, industrial pallet or Australian pallet. Once the pallet is inside the magazine, a scanner reads the pallet pattern to detect how the shipping boxes are loaded on the pallet and a gripper arm moves the shipping box to the unpacking station. 

The robotic magazine includes an internal buffer to ensure production can run smoothly even when a new pallet is being loaded into the magazine. It can hold up to 20 shipping boxes of carton sleeves.
