Crunchy puffed rice
At Ruebezahl Schokoladen GmbH up to 1,600 puffed rice bites of the "Sun Rice" brand are packaged each minute.
This highly flexible packaging system allows the product to be packed into trays as either individual bars or other variations at the same time.
High Speed Packaging
To safeguard the continuing success of the product, Ruebezahl Schokoladen GmbH has invested in a high-performance packaging line. The remit for Schubert Packaging Systems was: to ensure packaging at high speeds with an error tolerance of practically zero.
Two robots separate the trays which are fed from magazines and then positioned on the tray conveyor. Seven TLM F4 robot units (14 arms) progressively pick up the individual 1,600 per minute chocolate-coated puffed rice bites and place them accurately and orientated into the trays.
The patented Counterflow Principle guarantees that only completely filled trays will flow into a Heliflex storage system before they are packaged in a flow pack.
In the case of another packaging variation, the individual packing of puffed rice bites is made directly into a flow wrap. 1,200 accurately positioned and orientated products per minute are placed onto the conveyor chain of the flow wrapping machine running continously at up to 60 meters per minute.
Furthermore 500 puffed rice bars per minute are flow wrapped using the same procedure.PDF Download
