October 16, 2018 — Honeywell Intelligrated showcased its connected solutions for automated palletizing equipment in end-of-line manufacturing environments at PACK EXPO International booth S-2560. By leveraging data from machine-level sensors, the company provides real-time equipment monitoring, diagnostics and asset-level insights.
These connected solutions analyze real-time and historic data to detect equipment conditions that could impact performance — such as excess motor vibration,temperature fluctuations or underutilization trends — and provide real-time alerts to help fix critical issues before they affect the entire production process.
Connected offerings may also improve palletizer utilization and throughput rates, uncovering opportunities for improvement. The system monitors run times to reveal when systems are idle, underutilized or not hitting target throughput rates, and allows operators to identify the root causes, make the necessary corrections and resolve barriers to palletizer productivity.
The Honeywell Intelligrated booth demonstration at PACK EXPO features the Alvey 890i palletizer, capable of handling a range of packaging types, in a variety of stacking patterns. An touch-screen interface offers access to diagnostics. Safety features and a maintenance- friendly design enable performance in food, beverage and consumer packaged goods operations.
