A new combination of Italian passion and creativity together with strategy and technical support was created, when Amotek joined the German company OPTIMA Packaging group GmbH in 1999. The tissue bagging machines’ solutions offered cover kitchen and toilet rolls for low and high performance line outputs, multiple formats of prepacked facial tissue and interfolded tissue products, as well as industrial toilet rolls. Packaging solutions for nonwovens and consumer products are also part of the company’s portfolio.
New sustainable machine generation
Everyone knows the PB182 model as Amotek’s top machine in the tissue industry. It is the right bagging machine for tissue rolls offering the possibility to work in both single and dual lane configurations. Nevertheless, Amotek breathed from the market the need to have additional choices. Therefore, Amotek introduced a new machine generation of PB192 models during the last Tissue World Milan exhibition. Technical and technological innovations are paired together to reach a wider configuration flexibility (PB192 FLEX) and higher performances (PB192 DUAL). The flexible machine setting from single to double lane, the quick and easy size changeover, and best performances at products output up to 150 ppm (productivity realistically increased by 30% at same lapse compared to PB182) are undoubtedly the main innovations. In parallel to the birth of the PB192 series, relevant improvements in terms of monitoring and saving consumptions have been reached and are now successfully adopted on all Amotek baggers.
Monitoring. With an incorporated computer technology into machines, more data are easily displayed on a wider, higher resolution smart panel and can be consulted directly by the operator. This information from the system allows the customers to understand what is going on with the machine, by analyzing the production phases and being able to act promptly in the precise area, in case of alarms. The artificial intelligence is also able to remind the main maintenance activities, automatically recommended, granting an easy care system. This technology is really appreciated from most of the customers that visited Amotek booth, it is also responding to the parameters of Industry 4.0, which is being requested even more in the Italian market.
Saving consumption. Air and energy consumption can be monitored in real time, helping to furtherly understand if an air loss occurred accidentally. Servomotors that allow the saving and reuse of the accrued energy during braking and stopping phases generate about 85% of the movement.
Style. Last but not least, Amotek offers a new smart baggers generation with the possibility to choose a renewed charming style and sturdier frame.
