Hiperbaric launches new HPP Automation machine at SIAL Paris 2022
Its latest technology promises to increase productivity, cost savings, traceability and operator safety.
The company has more than 20 years of experience in design, manufacture and marketing of High Pressure Processing (HPP) industrial equipment for food and beverages. It also designs, manufactures and supplies tailor-made, flexible and personalised solutions for automating HPP equipment. These services cover automation, material handling and industry 4.0.
As a post-packaging process, HPP requires packaged products to be loaded into baskets, which is often done manually. Pre-feeders and robotic unload solutions allow manufacturers to make this process more efficient, while also reducing heavy loading, which can result in injuries and labour costs.
Material handling is known to be tedious, labour-intensive and repetitive. Companies can therefore optimise production, improve efficiency, and promote operator safety by using custom carriers, carrier carts, elevators, turntables, tote-dumpers, pre-feeders, and dryers.
RFID tags and Data Matrix codes placed on the HPP baskets can help manufacturers track inventory, automate setup, and provide strict traceability and reliability, ensuring that all products are processed.
Throughputs can also be increased with shaker conveyors, robotic case packers, and robotic pick & place systems. After HPP, shaker conveyors remove the excess water on the packaging. Robotics can then pick single or multiple items to pack single or multiple cases per cycle.
Unique Selling Points
- Maximises production productivity by increasing throughput, production line speed and efficiency
- Reduces overall labour costs by 60% by moving from a manual batch process to an automated process
- Increases safety by preventing operator injuries that could occur with manual, repetitive movements
