Cases (McBride & Südzucker) 24 The Palcut solution – get the full potential 26 out of your palletising


Is your palletising as efficient as it could be?

As a manufacturing company, palletising and transportation of your products are crucial to the flow, efficiency, and finances of your business. At Palcut, we are constantly striving for new standards within packaging to optimise your palletising. We have summarised our recommendations and selected cases and aim to maximise your potential by optimising your uptime, increasing your efficiency and reducing your costs.

WHY ANTI-SLIP PAPER? Optimise your transportation with anti-slip paper Say goodbye to frustration, transportation damage and financial losses. Unstable and unsecure transport is a thing of the past. With our anti-slip paper, your products are stable and secure during transport. The friction coating ensures that your products remain on the pallet – all the way from production to the end customer. The paper is used between the product layers on the pallet and can be delivered as pre-cut sheets or in reels – depending on the type of paper and your specific requirements. Palcut’s anti-slip paper is approved and certified by ISEGA in Germany for safe use with food, as long as the contact is secondary and therefore not in direct contact with the food. We take social responsibility by exclusively using FSC® certified paper, among other actions.

Antim®

The paper that keeps your products stable on the pallet Antim® ensures the ultimate stability of your products in the warehouse and all the way to the customer. The paper has a slip angle of over 50° (according to the TAPPI 815 standard), which means that your products will stay on the pallet, virtually regardless of terrain and speed.

WHERE CAN YOU USE ANTIM®? Antim® is our bestseller, as the paper provides an efficient solution to most challenges. What’s more, Antim® is especially suitable for heavy, slippery or bulky items.

Antim® X

The paper that ensures secure transportation Antim® X has a slip angle of over 45° and a coating applied in diagonal stripes. The paper ensures stable pallets in the warehouse, during transportation, as well as in the shops. Antim® X is our most affordable paper, since we have saved on the coating. Therefore, it is a sensible choice if you do not require stabilisation for heavy items and strong friction is not necessary.

WHERE CAN YOU USE ANTIM® X? The friction coating on Antim® X is applied in diagonal stripes, which means that the paper can handle the same challenges as Antim® but is recommended for lighter items.

Tilt test

Antim® makes a difference

We have tested our Antim® interlayer sheets to illustrate the difference between transportation with and without the popular anti-slip paper. We placed eight boxes weighing 15 kilos each in four layers on a pallet. Firstly, we conducted a test where we tilted the load without interlayer sheets between the layers of the pallet. Then, we performed a test with two interlayer sheets and finally a test with four sheets. The results were as follows:

Without Antim®

18°

19°

2 Antim® sheets

22.5°

4 Antim® sheets

21°

26.3°

It may not sound like much, with a difference of 7.3° from not using interlayer sheets to using interlayer sheets between all layers, but it can make the difference between damaged and undamaged goods. If you think that a tilt of 19° is sufficient for your needs, and your goods are rarely damaged or shifted on the pallet during transport, then consider this additional benefit of interlayer sheets: By using interlayer sheets, you can achieve significant cost savings on stretch foil. With the developments in recycled packaging, it will be cheaper and easier to recycle paper than plastic. The more layers of interlayer sheets you place in your load, the less wraps of stretch foil you will require.

From lost boxes to a doubling of production speed It is not necessarily the external transportation on the lorries that is the problem. It could just as easily be the short internal distances that present challenges for the stability of pallets with several product layers. This was the case for a food producer in the USA, where trucks in the warehouse had to drive slowly from point A to B in order to prevent boxes of food from falling off. If they had used the self-driving robots, they would have had to run after them and pick up the boxes. Antim® interlayer sheets between the top four layers of boxes was the solution that resulted in the manufacturer doubling the daily production rate from 1,000 to 2,000 pallets.

BONUS WITH BASE SHEETS When you use paper from Palcut as a base sheet, you reduce the pressure of the load and strengthen both the capacity and stability. It does not take much before the stretch foil loses its grip on the pallet when there is no base sheet: If you have a load that slips and the stretch foil comes off the pallet, then there is no longer contact between the products and the pallet, which can result in it tipping over or collapsing. If you add a base sheet, it creates friction that allows for better contact. You will also be able to prevent unevenness from boxes placed with one side in one of the pallet's grooves. You also benefit financially and environmentally when you use Antim® or Antim® X interlayer sheets to strengthen the load by saving up to 30% on stretch foil.

Liquim® GOLD

Avoid leakages and minimise losses The paper’s liquid-resistant barrier and double-sided anti-slip coating ensures the ultimate stability of your products at the warehouse and all the way to the customer.

WHERE CAN YOU USE LIQUIM® GOLD? Liquim® GOLD is ideal for products such as bulk bags, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. There should not be any slippages, since leakage in one unit often results in the entire pallet being discarded, which can cause huge financial losses. If a leak were to occur, the liquid-resistant barrier would prevent the leak from spreading. NOTE: Please be aware that the dark side of the paper best repels water.

Liquim® SILVER

Prevent condensation from affecting the pallet’s stability The paper’s liquid-resistant barrier and one-sided anti-slip coating makes the paper especially suitable for transport where condensation can occur.

WHERE CAN YOU USE LIQUIM® SILVER? Liquim® SILVER is suitable for transportation in humid environments, or where fluctuating temperatures cause condensation. While condensation can destroy conventional interlayer sheets and significantly impair the stability of the pallet, Liquim® SILVER ensures that the sheet retains its strength and keeps the pallet stable all the way to the customer. The one-sided coating can also help to facilitate palletising when products need to be moved and repositioned, as well as with manual palletising. The downward-facing coating ensures stability while the upward-facing side allows for a full range of movement. NOTE: Please be aware that the dark side of the paper best repels water.

Condensation does not have to be a source of frustration An example of the effect of Liquim® SILVER

In Southern Europe, summers are very hot. However, the spring water, which is pumped from underground and poured into bottles is no more than six degrees. When the water bottles are shipped to the supermarkets, it is on lorries where the temperature easily reaches 45 -50 degrees. Such a change in temperature results in condensation forming immediately. The condensation runs down into the corrugated cardboard, which is conventionally used for shipping water bottles, and dissolves it so that it is destroyed, compromising the stability of the entire pallet. If you replace the cardboard with Liquim® SILVER, condensation will settle on the paper and soak in after some time, but the liquid will remain in the paper so that it can become dry again without being destroyed. Therefore, the stability is not affected.


Liquim® BRONZE

Prevent moisture from pallets from penetrating products The paper’s liquid-resistant core makes it suitable for protecting your products against moisture from pallets, while being completely plastic-free.

WHERE CAN YOU USE LIQUIM® BRONZE? Liquim® BRONZE is for the environmentally-conscious company that requires interlayer sheets with a liquid-resistant function and would also like to reduce plastic consumption. Liquim® BRONZE is ideal as a base sheet, as it reduces the moisture from wet pallets penetrating through the paper and into your products. NOTE: Please be aware that the dark side of the paper best repels water.

Sheet dispensers

Simplify your workflow and change reels in a split second

Unnecessary downtime in production is inefficient and expensive. With our fully automatic sheet dispenser you get a unique machine to dispense interlayer sheets for palletising. Just relax. A Palcut sheet dispenser is not just another machine in your production. A sheet dispenser from Palcut ensures lightning-fast workflows and less downtime so you can reduce your costs from day one.

THE SHEET DISPENSER YOUR PRODUCTION WILL NEVER AGAIN WANT TO BE WITHOUT Palcut 800 and Palcut 1200 are our fully automatic sheet dispensers, which quickly and precisely cut interlayer sheets directly from a paper reel with anti-slip paper. The sheet dispenser always ensures that only one sheet at a time is ready for collection, which eliminates spontaneous production stoppages resulting from incorrect lifting when the robot collects multiple sheets and/or drops excess sheets. Palcut 800 and Palcut 1200 indicate the maximum reel width of each respective sheet dispenser. A sheet dispenser is especially suitable for companies with a high sheet consumption or where automatic palletising units must run continuously. A Palcut sheet dispenser accommodates your production and pallet sizes – even if they vary from day to day or hour to hour. Downtime and production stoppages are a thing of the past, and your production speed can be kept at a steady pace. By fully automatic we mean fully automatic, and the advantages are many:

18

you avoid picking up more than one sheet at a time

you have automatic switching between 15 pre-programmed sheet sizes – changing sheet sizes is as easy as pressing a button or via an external signal from the palletising control system

you optimise the robot’s working speed, since the collection height is fixed

you reduce the number of production stoppages by up to 90%

you get extremely user-friendly operation

you get easy integration with the palletising control system


INTEGRATION OF THE SHEET DISPENSER Both Palcut 800 and Palcut 1200 can be positioned for a custom fit in your production. The sheet dispenser can be integrated as either stand-alone, partially inside the robot's working area or completely inside the robot's work area/cell.

BASE DISPENSER – PRECISE PLACEMENT OF BASE SHEETS EVERY TIME A Palcut base dispenser automatically applies base sheets to your pallets as they pass the line on the way to palletising. The system increases capacity in the palletising process, as the bottom sheet is already on the pallet. Therefore, there is no need for a pickand-place system – the paper is applied in-line without process stoppage. The system requires little space and has been developed to be compatible with all types of pallets.

CUSTOM SHEET DISPENSER SOLUTIONS Every customer is unique, and it really shows when you look at companies' different needs for palletising. All items have particular characteristics and must be handled accordingly. Our task is to make your palletising run smoothly, regardless of whether you are a brewery or a toilet paper manufacturer. We have over 20 years of experience with custom solutions in existing palletising lines and have tried a bit of everything over the years. 70% of Palcut’s sheet dispensers are tailored to the different needs of our customers, because unique needs require unique solutions.

Find out more about the sheet dispensers on our website or ask for our sheet dispenser brochure.

Put an end to costly production stoppages Every time your palletising robot drops an interlayer sheet and causes a production stoppage, it results in economic loss. Do you have an overview of how big they can become?

PALCUT SOLUTION COMPLETELY ELIMINATED INEFFECTIVE PRODUCTION TIME The following case is an example of how even a few minutes of downtime in palletising can add up to significant economic losses. Dropped sheets that caused a stoppage of the entire palletising plant had gradually come to be an everyday occurrence with a customer. The challenge was a robot that regularly took more than one sheet from the sheet magazine and then dropped it, so it had to be manually removed and the entire plant had to shut down for 2.5 minutes each time. It happened at least four times daily, which meant that the palletising plant did not produce for 10 minutes every day. With 220 production days in a year, it equals 36 hours and 40 minutes of inefficient production time. The customer reports that an inefficient production hour costs them 250,000 DKK, calculated on the value of the products coming through the production line in one hour of normal operation. With a Palcut solution ensuring delivery of a single sheet at a time, the customer has no more unwanted production stoppages. Every year since installation, they have managed to palletise extra sales products for a total value of 9,166,167 DKK.


Time is money – so put it to better use than on changeovers and replenishments Different items typically require different sheet sizes in palletising, and the changeover between sheet sizes takes time. The following case is a good example of how a Palcut solution saved the customer an enormous amount of changeover time when products were not being palletised. Different items and three different sheet sizes needed adjustment every three weeks. That might not sound like a problem – the challenge was that a single adjustment took an average of 30 minutes while the palletising system was stopped. Therefore, the installation of a Palcut solution offered great improvements, as the customer could now change sheet sizes without switching off the entire plant. Annually, this solution has saved the customer eight hours of production downtime, which corresponds to 1/3 daily production of 33,333 units, that the customer can now produce additionally. In the customer's previous setup, large quantities of corrugated cardboard were also used. Production runs around the clock, and the sheet magazine had to be filled every three hours. A refill took 2 minutes, and during that time, the plant was idle. Therefore, every day there were 16 minutes of downtime in their palletising. The Palcut solution has meant that the customer can now palletise 14 more minutes a day, which corresponds to approximately five extra palletised pallets per day.

21



Save storage space and the environment Many manufacturing companies lack storage space, and packaging materials are some of the items that take up the most space. By replacing traditional interlayer sheets with a Palcut solution, you will not only get more space in your warehouse, but you will also achieve large environmental savings.

PALCUT SOLUTION REDUCED 51 FULLY PACKED LORRIES TO 8 The following case is a good example of a customer who has experienced great improvements in terms of space and saved a significant amount of CO2 by installing a Palcut solution in their palletising line. Annually, the customer used 1.2 million sheets of corrugated cardboard in their palletising plant. These were delivered with 700 sheets on each pallet with a weight of 0.276 kilos per sheet. So, every year approximately 1,700 pallets were delivered, corresponding to 51 full-load deliveries by lorry. With the installation of a Palcut solution and switching to a sheet weight of 0.138 kilos, the customer has reduced their packaging consumption from 332 tonnes to 166 tonnes per year. By replacing corrugated cardboard with anti-slip sheets from a reel, the number of delivered pallets has reduced from 1,700 to 240. This reduction corresponds to 43 fewer full-load deliveries. According to the customer's request to always have materials for 2 weeks in stock, the Palcut solution has also resulted in the materials only taking up 11 pallets in the warehouse instead of the previous 76. This is because there are 7 times as many interlayer sheets on a reel compared to a pallet with corrugated paper. The achieved reduction in packaging is 166 tonnes of paper, which corresponds to 66 tonnes of CO2.

From 51 full-load deliveries to only 8 per year From 332 to 166 tonnes of packaging per year From 1,700 to 240 pallets per year Savings of 66 tonnes of CO2 per year

CASE

A specially designed machine solution eliminated machine stoppages and frustration at McBride Denmark

Dropped sheets and machine jams several times a day – this scenario had become everyday life for McBride in Holstebro before they had a Palcut solution installed. They used a traditional sheet magazine solution with pre-cut non-slip pallet sheets on their palletising line. The problem was that the robot far too often picked up too many sheets, and that the lower one was either placed askew on the pallet or fell all the way off. It triggered a machine stoppage every single time, much to the employees’ frustration, and it became expensive in the long run. McBride decided to replace their problematic solution with a fully automatic sheet dispenser from Palcut, but space was tight, since it had to fit in the existing palletising plant. A unique, specially designed machine solution is what now enables McBride to be free from both machine downtime and employee frustration. According to team leader Dennis Lago Hansen, the result is an increase in the company's productivity and a substantial financial gain.

CASE

Anti-slip paper makes it possible to comply with strict German transport requirements

Production stoppages due to lost sheets and lack of flexibility in the palletising process was what made German Südzucker go to Palcut. With a fully automatic sheet dispenser, the switch between full and half-pallets is now seamless and has boosted efficiency. In addition, stability during transportation has significantly improved after Südzucker started using Antim® anti-slip interlayer sheets. Sugar is a difficult product to transport, because it is easily displaced during transportation, but with Antim®, transportation today is much more stable and secure. “We have been able to do away with a large number of storage spaces for the different sheet sizes", says Markus Obermaier from Südzucker, which, in addition to increased efficiency and stability, can add more storage space to the list of benefits of switching to a Palcut sheet dispenser. Another important thing that has made life easier for Südzucker is that the pallets now meet the strict German requirements for load securing on the highways.
