FBS (Feeding Bag System),
the new SIPLAUTOMATION machine

This is a bagging machine capable of packaging multi-batch cylindrical items in bags made of PE.
Characterised by the utmost flexibility, it can feed and pack items with diameters of Ø8 mm to Ø22 mm and lengths of 70 mm to 160 mm. The HMI allows the user to programme the length of the bag and the number of pieces that go into each one.
FBS can be used on a stand-alone basis (as shown in the video) or linked to another machine (screen-printing machine, assembly machine, moulding machine, etc.). FBS can be used for a variety of applications: writing instruments, cosmetics, pharma, biomedical, etc.; the ideal solution for anyone who needs to package cyildrical items.

SIPLAUTOMATION is capable of developing and building special machines for primary and secondary packaging dedicated to the food, pharma, biomedical, writing instruments and cosmetics sectors.

Our Special Machines

Here is a selection of pictures of machines built for just some of the applications for which they can be used.

Feeding bag system

The Feeding Bag system is an automatic feeding and bagging system, suitable for writing instruments, cosmetics and biomedical articles.
The system is capable of packaging different types of products, with different diameters and lengths, thanks to a rapid format change procedure. The operator can choose the quantity of product per bag on the touch screen.
This end of line can be connected to various types of automation: assembly, screen printing machines, etc.

Boxing Machine

This highly customised boxing machine, suitable for packaging 10 or 20 pcs, has been produced for the packaging of writing instruments (markers, ballpoint pens, propelling or mechanical pencils, highlighters), but this kind of machine can be used for all kinds of packaging. Safe use, proven quality in terms of materials and manufacturing process. Cutting-edge electronic and automation technologies allow complete control of operations throughout the process, ensuring the utmost accuracy and reliability.

XL-RO

Automatic folding machines to package envelopes in roll or wallet shape. High productivity, safe use, proven quality in terms of materials and manufacturing process (stainless steel), and compliance with the health and hygiene standards in force in the food sector. Cutting-edge electronic and automation technologies allow complete control of operations throughout the process, ensuring the utmost accuracy and reliability.

COMPATT

COMPATT is a wrap-around style compact and flexible case packer, shaping cases from flat cardboard. This machine meets the requirements of reduced overall dimensions, accessibility, an easy format change procedure and maximum reliability. With a compact and modern design, it is the ideal solution to work with a wide range of sizes. Full accessibility, with polycarbonate safety guards and noise level reducer fitted with safety microswitches. The movement of this automatic wrapping machine is driven by brushless motors to ensure high precision, controlled by Siemens Simotion Motion Control.

XL-BF1

The XL-BF1 TRAY-BOX-FILLING MACHINE is a primary packaging machine for use with a variety of packaging systems for application is different market areas (food, confectionery, dairy, dietetics, pharmaceuticals, toiletries, diagnostics, cosmetics, perfumery, stationery).

XL-SL

The XL-SL CASA PACKER has been designed to operate in the humid and aggressive environments typical of the food sector.
The machine is built on a base with stainless steel or aluminium frame and AISI 304 stainless steel panels that house moving parts that command the operations required. Case blanks are picked up from the magazine with suction cup systems that grip the box on two sides, make it up completely and then position it on the filling station. The machine is controlled by a PLC with an operator interface that can be used to configure the different formats.
The format change is quick and user-friendly.

Control & Inspection

SIPLAUTOMATION is capable of developing and building machines for product control and inspection. An example is our low-intensity X-ray control system, X- ISOBORDER.

our control and inspection machine

X-ISOBORDER

The X-ISOBORDER SYSTEM FOR PACKAGING INSPECTION uses x-ray technology for the inspection of productions in the invisible spectrum range, applying density verification.
It is suitable for the inspection of plastic, cardboard and aluminium packaging.
The system is made up of a low energy emission tube (< 30kV) placed over the conveyor while the line-scan sensor is placed just under the plane of motion.
Thanks to low energy radiation, no particular precautions or legal certification are necessary for use.
