Mucho más que la suma de sus partes
Beckum, 13. October 2017

Ohorongo Cement opta por el suministro de una tercera línea de embalaje de BEUMER:

La empresa Ohorongo Cement (PTY) Ltd., filial de Schwenk Zement KG, es el único fabricante de cemento en el país africano de Namibia. Su misión es cubrir la demanda nacional de cemento de primera calidad. Hasta ahora, la empresa había utilizado dos líneas de embalaje para transportar el material de forma rápida y sobre todo segura sobre las superficies de carga de los camiones, permitiendo la entrega a clientes a miles de kilómetros de distancia. Esto, sin embargo, ya no era suficiente. Para aumentar el rendimiento del cemento, a veces muy fino, BEUMER Group suministró e instaló una tercera línea fabricada completamente por ellos, haciéndolo además con un margen de tiempo muy ajustado.

El pueblo más cercano es Otavi, a 20 kilómetros de distancia, y más al norte se halla Tsumeb. Solo una carretera atraviesa la vasta superficie entre ambos lugares. Precisamente en esta región rica en piedra caliza de Namibia, Otjozondjupa, Schwenk Zement ha construido una fábrica. Ohorongo Cement, o simplemente Ohorongo, está a cargo de esta fábrica. Esta filial cien por cien propiedad de Schwenk Zement fabrica cinco cementos diferentes, algunos de ellos de muy fina calidad. "Nuestro material es de muy buena calidad", subraya el jefe de fábrica Manfred Pirker.

Apostando por el socio correcto

Tras la fabricación del clinker, éste es molido transformándose en cemento. A continuación, o bien se lleva directamente como material a granel a un vehículo-silo, o en sacos grandes de 2.000 kilos a un camión, o bien se llena en sacos. "En esta fábrica empleamos sacos de 50 kilos", explica Pirker. "Tras el llenado se apilan sobre las paletas y se cubren con un film estirable." La fábrica contaba hasta la fecha con dos líneas de embalaje, para cada una de las cuales BEUMER Group suministró e instaló hace años un paletizador por capas de alto rendimiento del tipo BEUMER paletpac® y sistemas de embalaje de la serie BEUMER stretch hood®. "Con el tiempo, sin embargo, no pudimos hacer frente a la creciente demanda de cemento", comenta Pirker. "Teníamos que aumentar de forma urgente nuestro rendimiento."

Con las dos líneas de embalaje disponibles, Ohorongo había tenido muy buenas experiencias. Por lo que los responsables también tenían claro que, como socio para el suministro y montaje de la tercera línea de embalaje, la única opción viable era BEUMER Group, el proveedor completo de técnica de ensacado, paletización y embalaje. "Nos ha convencido el impecable servicio técnico y la asistencia in situ a lo largo de los años", informa Pirker.

Una cuestión ineludible

A finales de 2014 se recibió en Beckum, la sede central de BEUMER Group en Alemania, la solicitud de oferta de Namibia. Ambas empresas se pusieron pronto de acuerdo sobre el volumen y los plazos y firmaron de forma inmediata el contrato. El mismo incluía, al contrario que en el caso de las dos primeras líneas de embalaje, un sistema de envasado BEUMER fillpac®. "A principios de 2015 emprendimos el proyecto", rememora Hermann Krumkamp, Senior Project Manager en BEUMER Group. "Tuvimos que tener en cuenta, entre otras cosas, las condiciones climáticas dominantes en la zona. En pleno verano, las temperaturas diarias pueden alcanzar hasta los 40 grados y más en las regiones desérticas. Esto puede influir tanto en las propiedades de fluidez del cemento, como también en la elasticidad del film estirable", explica Krumkamp. Las máquinas debían configurarse conforme a estas condiciones. Además, los ingenieros tuvieron que acomodar la instalación en el nuevo anexo creado para la nave de embalaje existente. En agosto llegaron los contenedores con las máquinas a Ohorongo Cement. "Pero tuvimos que esperar para empezar con el montaje hasta que el nuevo edificio para la tercera línea de embalaje estuviera totalmente acabado", comenta Krumkamp. En noviembre empezaron los especialistas con el montaje de las máquinas.

Ensacado: ni tanto ni tan poco

Dado que el cemento fabricado aquí es especialmente fino, BEUMER Group instaló una máquina de llenado de tipo BEUMER fillpac® con ocho bocas de llenado giratorias que trabaja siguiendo el principio de llenado por turbina. "La particularidad aquí es el especial sistema electrónico de pesaje", explica Krumkamp. Ya que el ensacado se realiza según el principio del pesaje bruto, es decir, los sacos se pesan durante el proceso de llenado. Para este fin, el BEUMER fillpac® está dotado de un dispositivo de pesaje calibrable. El sistema electrónico de pesaje garantiza que la máquina alcance un grado de llenado siempre exacto. Un software especial permite compensar de forma permanente el peso entre las bocas de llenado y la báscula.

La turbina de llenado destaca por su rapidez y rendimiento.
Para seguir aumentando la eficacia del sistema de envasado, BEUMER Group incluyó además un depósito de fajos de sacos de última tecnología en el BEUMER bag placer®. Los servomotores accionan el colocador de sacos y el prensor aspirador de forma automática, con exactitud y de forma energéticamente eficiente. El sistema prensor y el colocador de sacos colocan los sacos de forma segura desde el fajo de sacos a la boca de llenado. Cada hora se colocan así 2.400 sacos con alta precisión.

Garantía de una paletización suave

Para posteriormente paletizar los sacos de forma totalmente automática, fiable y, sobre todo, rápida, BEUMER Group instaló un paletizador por capas modelo BEUMER paletpac® 3000. Esta instalación apila de forma exacta sacos de 50 kilos uno sobre otro en unidades de cinco sobre cada paleta. Krumkamp explica que "los sistemas fueron equipados con un dispositivo de giro de dos bandas transportadoras para posicionar los sacos rápidamente, de manera correcta y sin deformarlos. En lo que concierne a la exactitud de posicionamiento, éste ofrece una enorme ventaja frente a los procesos de giro convencionales." En su lugar, las dos bandas transportadoras paralelas que se emplean aquí son accionadas individualmente, a velocidades diferentes, girando los sacos rápidamente. También posicionan los sacos de forma muy cuidadosa. El dispositivo de giro de dos bandas transportadoras está dotado de un equipo de control "inteligente" que aprovecha las medidas y el peso de los sacos para posicionarlos con gran precisión, conforme a la configuración de capa seleccionada.

Embalado de forma segura y rápida

Las pilas de sacos acabadas llegan al sistema de embalaje BEUMER stretch hood® A mediante transportadores de rodillos. "Hemos rediseñado esta máquina de la serie BEUMER stretch hood® de forma intrínseca", explica Krumkamp. En comparación con las instalaciones ya existentes, el usuario puede manipularla de forma más segura y sencilla. Para facilitar el trabajo del personal de mantenimiento y obtener una mayor disponibilidad de la instalación, el nuevo sistema de embalaje no necesita ninguna plataforma. Los trabajos de mantenimiento, como por ejemplo el cambio de las cuchillas o de las barras de soldadura, se efectúan a nivel del suelo. El diseño compacto, que da como resultado una baja altura y un pequeño espacio en planta, es otro beneficio. "La BEUMER stretch hood® A es, por tanto, ideal para la nueva nave", comenta Pirker.

Un sistema de transporte del film, que funciona de un modo particularmente suave, permite introducir el capuchón, previamente confeccionado a medida y soldado, en la instalación. El cordón de soldadura del capuchón se enfría ya en su camino hasta la unidad de repliegue y estirado, lo que permite replegarlo sin pérdida de tiempo. Esto permite la eliminación de unidades de refrigeración que consumen energía y tiempos de enfriamiento poco eficientes. Así, las paletas pueden ser embaladas en un tiempo más corto. "Procesamos 60 paletas cada hora", comenta satisfecho Hermann Krumkamp. "En caso necesario podemos incluso aumentar esta cantidad."

Durante el embalaje, sin embargo, hubo que tener en cuenta algo más: "A diferencia de Alemania, en África el producto recorre no sólo algunos cientos de kilómetros, sino a menudo miles, sobre las superficies de carga del camión", informa Pirker. A ello se suman las altas temperaturas que ablandan el material del film. "Para contar con la seguridad necesaria, utilizamos films con un espesor de 80 y 100 micrómetros", explica Pirker.

Ohorongo puso en marcha la instalación en mayo de 2016. El jefe de fábrica, Manfred Pirker, se muestra visiblemente satisfecho: "Se ha creado una línea de embalaje confeccionada a la medida de nuestras necesidades." Esto sólo ha sido posible en tan corto plazo, porque todos han colaborado de forma intensiva en el proyecto. El fabricante de cemento quedó convencido con la sofisticada planificación técnica de BEUMER Group, el rápido desarrollo e implementación, así como la óptima adaptación de las instalaciones.

BEUMER Group to Install First ICS Baggage Handling System in the U.S. at San Francisco International Airport
Aarhus, 05. October 2017

BEUMER Group, a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems, has been awarded a contract by San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to install the first Individual Carrier System (ICS) for baggage handling in the US. A tote-based CrisBag® system from the Crisplant product platform will be installed within SFO’s soon-to-be-refurbished Terminal 1.

Choosing to deploy the first ICS baggage handling system in the US underlines SFO's role as a leading, innovative airport. Additionally, the optimised layout of the CrisBag® baggage handling system ensures 100% track and trace throughout the system. Using a single baggage handling system with centralised checked bag screening will improve efficiency of SFO Terminal 1. This allows greater flexibility for the airlines and will deliver a consolidated and optimised process for screening checked bags, to insure maximum utilisation of each EDS machine.

BEUMER Group’s CrisBag® totes were the first to be approved by the TSA for US-based, in-tote baggage screening, further enhancing efficiency. This certification applies for use in US airports and for US pre-border clearance when used with Morpho Detection’s CTX 9800 SEIO explosives detection system.

Terminal 1 inbound baggage handling will be further enhanced by 100% tracking and traceability at every stage which is provided by the CrisBag® system. The system will allow the handlers to off-load inbound baggage to the CrisBag® system near the gate positions, minimising tug traffic on the ramp.  Each arrival bag remains inside the same individually controlled tote from off-load at the gate to the claim device, ensuring on-time delivery of arrival bags.

The CrisBag® tote system features a unique start/stop function; the system only runs when a bag is being transported, which ensures a high level of energy efficiency, and low operational costs, which compliments the airport's industry leadership in sustainability.

Pioneering the use of ICS baggage handling in the US and choosing the innovative CrisBag® system ensures SFO will meet its commitment to efficiency, passenger experience, comfort and creativity. The CrisBag® tote-based baggage handling system is scheduled to be operational in SFO's Terminal 1 in 2020.

BEUMER Group to reveal the ultimate baggage handling system at Inter Airport 2017
Aarhus, 28. September 2017

BEUMER Group - a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems – will offer delegates at Inter Airport 2017 insights into the ultimate baggage handling system for visionary airports. The ultimate baggage handling system transforms the flow of baggage from a ‘push’ system into a ‘pull’ system. The transformation is enabled by the use of dynamic baggage storage and batch building. The dynamic baggage storage significantly increases efficiency by allowing batches of bags to be ‘pulled’ from storage for speed-loading onto ULDs. The system also uses speed-loading and automated handling of ULDs and dollys by use of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV).

A ground breaking new feature for ultimate baggage handling is the introduction of the Reclaim on Demand concept. The basic idea behind the concept is to give the passengers greater flexibility in deciding when to collect their baggage by introducing self-service pick-up kiosks. This feature not only helps to enhance security for reclaimed baggage, but it also allows passengers to spend time in a reclaim shopping area before collecting their bags.

Delegates will be invited to explore the ultimate baggage handling system through Augmented Reality (AR), and take a Virtual Reality (VR) tour through a CrisBag® Independent Carrier System (ICS).

BEUMER Group will also be showing how Big Data and Machine Learning can be used by airports;
Big data is the prerequisite for many new technologies like Predictive Analytics, 3D visualization and Machine Learning. BEUMER Group will demonstrate the advanced BG3D visualisation tool and show how Machine Learning offers a new approach to reading bag tags using neural networks.

In addition to highlighting the CrisBag system, which is part of BEUMER Group’s Crisplant product range, BEUMER will also introduce the extended capabilities of the BEUMER autover® ICS with the new autoca carrier.

The new design allows the autoca to transport a wider range of baggage sizes. This enables the autover system to carry standard and Out-Of-Gauge (OOG) bags on the same line and at the same speed. The new autoca can also transport CrisBag totes to allow for baggage to be transferred seamlessly between the autover and CrisBag systems within an airport.

BEUMER Group will be on Stand 1050, Hall A5 at Inter Airport 2017, Munich, 10-13 October.

Aarhus, 12. September 2017

BEUMER Group, a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling system, has been awarded the contract by airport owners, Swedavia, to design, supply and install a new CrisStore® dynamic Early Baggage Storage (EBS) system at Arlanda Airport, Sweden. The CrisStore® will be integrated in the airport's Terminal 5 while maintaining live operation of the baggage handling system.

The contract is part of Arlanda Airport’s plan to increase capacity from 21 million passengers per year to 36 million passengers per year by 2050. BEUMER Group’s CrisStore® system will be installed during the early phase of the airport’s extensive expansion and reorganization of the terminal building and baggage handling system.

“Arlanda has ambitious plans to become the preferred Scandinavian hub,” explains Bert Rasmusson, Swedavia BHS Project manager of the Arlanda development project. “One of the airport's key criteria, therefore, was to implement state-of-the-art technology in the new EBS. This will ensure maximum availability now and support further expansion by providing the easy scalability and compatibility with future systems.”

The CrisStore® rack-based storage system will provide over 1500 bag positions and enable Arlanda to improve the capacity, accuracy and security of the EBS system. As a module-based solution, using CrisBag® totes, CrisStore offers the required level of redundancy within the limited space available. The system has the flexibility to fit within the confines of low headroom and to adapt to the airport’s longer-term BHS requirements.

BEUMER Group's Johan Rajczyk, International Sales Manager, comments, “A joint simulation of the BHS has already been carried out by Arlanda Airport and BEUMER Group. This has confirmed that the system will provide the planned capacity following the integration of the new EBS with Arlanda's legacy Crisplant tilt-tray sorter.”

The high-level controls for Arlanda's baggage handling system have also recently been upgraded to BEUMER Group's Airport Software Suite. This modular control system provides the ability to handle the storage of bags based on the flight number. It also enables handlers to retrieve individual bags on demand.

The combination of the updated controls and CrisStore’s flexibility will enable the EBS to support the handling of over-size totes for out-of-gauge baggage. It will also allow Arlanda to implement future plans to batch-build bags for speed-loading onto a ULD or trolleys.

Una solución económicamente convincente
Aarhus, 17. August 2017

El fabricante de cemento Aalborg Portland A/S opta por un Pipe Conveyor de BEUMER Group:

La fabricación del cemento consume mucha energía. Para el funcionamiento rentable y duradero de su planta principal en Dinamarca, Aalborg Portland A/S utiliza combustibles y materias primas alternativos para alimentar el calcinador y el quemador. La división AFR Systems (Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials) de BEUMER Group da soporte al fabricante y elabora soluciones individuales de un solo proveedor, que permiten el transporte, almacenamiento y la dosificación de varios materiales. Los innovadores Pipe Conveyor son el equipo clave de estas instalaciones: estos sistemas de transporte cerrados transportan los combustibles y materias primas de manera ecológica, sin emisión de polvo y con poco consumo de energía.

Aalborg Portland es una filial del grupo italiano Cementir S.p.A. Este grupo es uno de los principales fabricantes y exportadores líderes de cemento a nivel mundial. Además de su planta principal en Aalborg, el grupo tiene filiales de producción también en China, Egipto, Malasia, Italia, Turquía y en los Estados Unidos, así como numerosas oficinas de venta y distribución.

Combustibles secundarios en lugar de primarios

La fabricación de cemento siempre ha necesitado mucha energía. Para evitar los combustibles primarios como el carbón, el gas o el petróleo, y conseguir una producción más rentable y duradera, Aalborg Portland utiliza combustibles alternativos para el proceso de combustión en el calcinador desde hace varios años.
"En 2014 hemos decidido optimizar y ampliar el sistema existente", dice Ole Strøm Hansen, el Director de proyecto de Aalborg Portland. Hasta entonces, el fabricante de cemento utilizaba largas líneas de transporte neumáticas para transportar el combustible hacia los dos calcinadores. Pero el productor no estaba satisfecho con esta solución: necesitaba muchísimo mantenimiento y estaba sujeta a averías. "Además queríamos aumentar la capacidad de nuestra líneas de transporte hasta 20 toneladas por hora y calcinador", explica O. Hansen.

El nuevo concepto permite transportar el Residue Derived Fuel (RFD) hasta el calcinador y el Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) hasta el quemador principal. La solución fue un sistema de transporte del combustible alternativo desde el almacén hasta la zona del horno rotatorio y la alimentación gravimétrica del calcinador y del quemador principal.
Los responsables decidieron acortar la línea de transporte neumática existente y sustituir la línea restante por un sistema de transporte mecánico, pero el fabricante quería también instalar una nueva línea de transporte completa para la dosificación del quemador principal, con una capacidad de hasta 10 toneladas por hora. "Hemos considerado alternativas con distintos sistemas de transporte mecánicos", recuerda O. Hansen. Al final, los daneses optaron por una solución completa de BEUMER Group, basada en la innovadora tecnología del Pipe Conveyor.

Una solución apropiada para cada caso

Con el fin de apoyar a los fabricantes de cemento en el campo de los combustibles y materias primas alternativos - en inglés los "Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials" - BEUMER Group ha creado una división completa dedicada a los sistemas AFR. "Con nuestros profundos conocimientos y nuestras soluciones a medida proporcionamos a nuestros clientes el apoyo necesario", dice Tomas Hrala, Director de proyecto de BEUMER Group. "No sólo tenemos muchos años de experiencia, sino también consideramos siempre los deseos de nuestros clientes." El especialista de sistemas es así capaz de suministrar e instalar cadenas de producción completas y personalizadas, desde la recepción y descarga de los vehículos hasta el almacenamiento, transporte y la dosificación de los combustibles sólidos. Todo el equipo procede así de una misma empresa y el usuario tiene un contacto único.

El Pipe Conveyor como pieza clave

"Por los diferentes tamaños de grano y composiciones de los combustibles alternativos se hacía necesario elaborar una solución de sistema individual para cada línea", explica Tomas Hrala. Para transportar los combustibles alternativos procesados desde la nave de almacén hasta el calcinador y el quemador principal, BEUMER Group realizó el suministro y el montaje de un Pipe Conveyor, la pieza clave de cada instalación, así como de todos sus equipos auxiliares. T. Hrala lo describe así: "Esta tecnología de transporte no sólo es ecológica y necesita un mantenimiento mínimo. Su construcción cerrada también protege el medio ambiente contra la caída de los productos transportados y el ruido. Otra ventaja es que no se forma polvo a lo largo de la línea de transporte en operación". Gracias a su adaptabilidad a las curvas, se necesitan muchas menos torres de transferencia en comparación con otros tipos de bandas transportadoras. Esto permite un ahorro sustancial de costes para el cliente y BEUMER Group puede personalizar un sistema para cada trazado.

Un sistema completo eficaz

El material para el horno se suministra en semirremolques de piso móvil. Los combustibles alternativos se descargan y almacenan en la estación de recepción. La alimentación de ambas líneas con producto a transportar ocurre desde la nave de almacén, mediante los fondos móviles modernizados por BEUMER Group. Todos los sistemas de transporte y sus equipos auxiliares están entrelazados para garantizar la alimentación de combustible constante. El Pipe Conveyor hasta el calcinador tiene un diámetro de 350 milímetros y una longitud de 135 m. Puede transportar 50 toneladas por hora hasta una tolva intermedia con un volumen de 35 metros cúbicos. Esta tolva, equipada con un activador y dos roscas transportadoras extractoras dobles, distribuye el material a dos líneas de dosificación y de transporte neumáticas que lo conducen a los dos calcinadores. Ambas líneas de transporte neumáticas hasta el calcinador están dotadas de alimentadores rotativos celulares y de ventiladores y han sido diseñadas y suministradas por BEUMER Group.

"Diseñar esta instalación supuso un gran desafío" recuerda Tomas Hrala, el director de proyecto de BEUMER. El edificio donde se encuentran los calcinadores tiene una parte adicional, el "ático". Éste soporta tanto la estación de descarga del Pipe Conveyor como las tolvas intermedias y sus dos roscas transportadoras extractoras dobles, o también las dos básculas de cinta con el sistema de transporte neumático. "Se debía calcular la estática del ático de manera que no se sobrepase la transferencia de carga posible al edificio existente. Era necesario, al mismo tiempo, garantizar una altura de paso suficiente para los vehículos de la planta", explica T. Hrala.

La pieza clave de la línea hasta el quemador principal es un Pipe Conveyor con un diámetro de 200 milímetros y una longitud de 201 metros. Su capacidad de transporte alcanza doce toneladas por hora. Está equipado con un transportador rascador de residuos, para minimizar los trabajos de limpieza, y con un filtro de desempolvado. Para la alimentación del combustible desde el fondo móvil en la nave de almacén hasta el Pipe Conveyor se utiliza una rosca transportadora. El sistema de dosificación en el edificio del quemador principal se compone de una tolva intermedia con un volumen de diez metros cúbicos, también con activador y rosca transportadora extractora doble, y de una báscula de cinta. Existe también una línea de transporte neumática, con ventilador y alimentador rotativo celular.

Ole Strøm Hansen (Aalborg Portland) lo resume así: "Estamos muy satisfechos con ambos sistemas completos. Los sistemas de transporte y sus equipos están perfectamente entrelazados para garantizar una alimentación de combustibles constante". ¿Y qué dice BEUMER Group? "Hemos demostrado una vez más nuestra extensa competencia en el manejo de los combustibles alternativos en la industria del cemento y proporcionado a nuestros clientes todo el apoyo esperado", destaca T. Hrala.

BEUMER desarrolla un film que permite una apertura fácil y rápida, sin herramienta de corte

Con la BEUMER stretch hood A, la gama de productos de BEUMER Group tiene un sistema de embalaje con film estirable muy eficaz que se puede utilizar en numerosos sectores. El suministrador de sistemas ahora puede equiparlo con el nuevo capuchón de fácil apertura: esta innovación mundial permite a los empleos de filiales y centros logísticos que deben desembalar o re-empaquetar mercancía quitar el film de manera muy fácil y rápida, sin que sea necesario utilizar ninguna herramienta de corte.

Hasta ahora no existía un sistema de embalaje para paletas en el mercado que no requiriera abrir el film sin una herramienta de corte. Con el método de apertura convencional, el empleado corría riesgo de lastimar a si mismo o a sus compañeros o de dañar el producto. Esto puede resultar costoso para la empresa y aumentar el riesgo de accidentes. En los centros logísticos, el capuchón de apertura fácil simplifica el trabajo de los empleados, ahorrando mucho tiempo. Para lograrlo, BEUMER en cooperación con un prestigioso suministrador de film, desarrolló una tecnología que permite abrir el film a lo largo en una línea de rotura precisa en el centro, sin afectar a la función de seguridad del capuchón de film estirable. El operario puede así abrir el capuchón de manera muy fácil y rápida, sin necesidad de herramienta. Esto aumenta considerablemente la productividad del desembalaje. Este nuevo tipo de capuchón ha sido la idea de BEUMER. Desde hace décadas, una cooperación muy estrecha une el proveedor de máquinas y sistemas y el fabricante de films.

BEUMER Group at the POWTECH 2017

BEUMER Group will exhibit its high level of expertise as a single-source provider for filling, palletising and packaging technologies at POWTECH 2017. Considered the leading trade fair for processing, analysis, and handling of powder and bulk material, the show takes place from 26 to 28 September in Nuremberg, Germany. Conveying systems will also be featured, backed by the system supplier's comprehensive customer support team. Whether the systems are designed for building material, cement, or chemical products – BEUMER offers everything from one source.

The behaviour of powders and bulk material can change entirely according to operating conditions, handling methods and the intended use. It varies depending on the size and shape of the particles, bulk density, compressibility, cohesive strength, humidity, oil content and the kind of chemical reaction to the atmospheric conditions. This impacts the flow behaviour, which has a considerable influence on how the conveying, filling, palletising and packaging systems are to be designed. BEUMER Group designs, constructs and installs systems that are tailored in detail to the individual requirements of the user.

With its belt conveyors, the system supplier provides economic and sustainable solutions for bulk material transport. The belt conveyors are able to negotiate curves and are designed either as open troughed belt conveyors or as closed Pipe Conveyors. Belt conveyors can be adapted optimally to the topography of the environment due to their ability to negotiate rough terrain, long distances and large differences in height. By overlapping narrow horizontal and vertical curves, belt conveyors fit seamlessly within existing terrain. BEUMER Group will also provide information on belt bucket elevators and high-capacity belt bucket elevators for particularly large delivery rates and heights.

As a single-source provider, BEUMER Group supplies and installs the packaging lines and adjusts them to the products of the customer. The BEUMER fillpac R filling machine fills bulk material from the building materials industry and other industrial pulverized goods into bags in an efficient and gentle way and with the required throughput. It can fill very fine to very coarse materials into different bag formats and types, such as valve bottom bags and flat valve bags. BEUMER Group has now complemented the rotary filling machine with a BEUMER bag placer and a ream magazine. This means that performance and efficiency can be further increased. The highly efficient form fill seal system BEUMER fillpac FFS is used in the chemical and petrochemical industries. It forms bags from a prefabricated tubular PE film and fills them with the product of the customer.The BEUMER bag tester is a new addition to the product range: The testing device is easy to transport and enables users to exactly determine the venting capacity of any type of valve bag and therefore their suitability – including all paper and plastic layers, and glued areas.

After filling, the bags are then stacked on pallets. For this, BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER paletpac high-capacity palletiser. It is incorporated into high-performance packaging lines to process even sensitive and valuable products as well as products with special flow characteristics in a gentle and efficient manner. Depending on the product requirements, it can be equipped with a clamp-type turning device or a twin-belt turning device. BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER robotpac, a space-saving articulated robot, for palletising cartons, boxes, canisters or trays. This fully automatic machine is able to solve even complex palletising and de-palletising challenges reliably and efficiently.

During transport, the palletised products must be secured on the pallet and protected against dust, rain or other atmospheric influences. The BEUMER stretch hood high capacity stretch hood system can be used for this. Compared to previous versions, the BEUMER stretch hood A now offers higher throughput, gentle transport of the film in the system and requires 40 percent less floor space. The systems supplier can now provide the system with a newly developed easy opening hood: it allows employees in retail stores and logistics centres to quickly and easily remove the film when unpacking or repacking the goods, without the use of any cutting tools.

Under the banner of Industry 4.0 BEUMER Group has developed the BEUMER Overall Operation Monitoring app, an application with which the customer's employees have all relevant indices of their packaging line displayed on their mobile devices at any time. The application shows the status quo of availability, performance and quality levels as well as the energy and compressed-air consumption. This ensures efficient operation of all systems. The program can be adapted to customer-specific requirements.

BEUMER Group awarded a second contract by Relais Colis for its second automated parcel sortation system
Aarhus, 12. July 2017

BEUMER Group, a leading global supplier of automated parcel and post distribution systems, has been awarded a second contract to design and integrate a new parcel sortation system at Relais Colis’ Sortation Centre in Genas, France. The new contract follows BEUMER’s installation of an almost identical automated parcel sortation system in Relais Colis’ Combs-La-Ville Hub which went into operation in April 2017.

The new cross-docking sortation system is based on an energy-efficient LS-4000 sorter which will provide Relais Colis with the flexibility to handle a wide range of parcel sizes. This ensures a highly efficient parcel delivery which enables an 8pm order cut-off time combined with next-day delivery to consumers throughout France.

BEUMER Group has designed the new system to fit into a more compact footprint than the Combs-La-Ville system due to the shape of the Genas Hub facility.

Jean-Sébastien Léridon, Managing Director of Relais Colis, explains; "BEUMER Group’s close partnership and co-operation resulted in the on-time delivery of the Combs-La-Ville system. This has given us the confidence to award the second contract for the Genas Hub to BEUMER Group. These automated systems are central to Relais Colis' business strategy to combine a higher delivery speed with a lower cost for all of our customers.”

The new sortation system is part of a 40 million Euro transformation in the Relais Colis brand which includes launching new services, in addition to tripling turnover and driving a 25-fold increase in customer numbers within the next four years. “The specific purpose of this site is to be both a hub and a regional agency”, explains Sébastien Coelho, Relais Colis Transformation and Flow Manager. He continues, “The Lyon hub agency project is a result of the experience developed with Beumer when designing the sorter installed in Combs-La-Ville and is part of an innovative approach in order to design this new double-use machine.”

Airports have one year to comply with IATA Resolution 753
Aarhus, 11. July 2017

International Air Transport Association (IATA) Resolution 753 comes into effect in June 2018, giving airports just one year to ensure their baggage handling systems are compliant. The resolution aims to reduce the number of lost or delayed pieces of baggage by keeping track of them at every stage of their journey, by maintaining a strict ‘chain of custody’ as bags are handed over during the various phases of travel. This will lead to a better customer experience and reduce the costs involved in tracing, retrieving and delivering missing or delayed bags.

To comply with IATA Resolution 753, airports must monitor the acquisition and delivery of bags at the three specified events: aircraft loading, arrivals inject and transfers inject. IATA members have committed themselves to prove the chain of custody by: demonstrating delivery of baggage when custody changes, demonstrating acquisition of baggage when custody changes, providing an inventory of baggage upon departure of a flight and exchanging these events with other airlines as needed.

The resolution is already having a positive impact on the passenger experience at many airports. As we approach June 2018, airlines are launching systems that provide real time notification to passengers about their bags. Passenger service apps provide push messages when a passenger's bag has been checked and loaded, as well as providing the bag tag number and the reclaim carousel number when the passenger arrives at their destination.

The new regulations are driving investment in technology that not only enables compliance with the resolution, but also improves passenger experience. Over recent years, many airports have commissioned modern baggage handling systems, as they are able to track the progress of a bag through the airport. In BEUMER Group baggage handling systems, high level controls, scanners and the baggage reconciliation system can tell where the bag has been, which security level it scanned through and when it was discharged for loading. The data is kept in the information system from which the airport or airline can pull the necessary information to convey to the passenger.

Off-loading and passenger acquisition of inbound bags presents a major challenge. Off-loading for passenger reclaim puts great demand on automatic tag reading (ATR) technology, leading airports to adopt new approaches such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Video Coding Systems (VCS) that allow an operator to manually resolve tag reading from a remote location.

Another technology for tracking baggage efficiently is RFID tags, which offer a higher read rate. They are still readable even if crumpled or wet and the price for a tag can be justified by the reduction in baggage having to be routed for manual encoding, if it can’t be read automatically. The challenge is that the airline has to pay the higher cost per tag, but airports are the main beneficiary.

Airports are complex environments, with some having as many as 30 different scanner technologies and conveyors or claim carousels that are not designed for attaching scanner arrays, making it harder to establish that they have the infrastructure to support Resolution 753. Despite this, they must be able to demonstrate compliance by June 2018. Even with the challenges, IATA Resolution 753 should be welcomed by airlines, airports and travelers alike. It is driving investment in technologies that will accelerate the reduction in baggage mishandling rates, which have been falling since 2007. This means a tangible benefit for all parties: fewer passenger complaints, as well as faster reconciliation and flight readiness for departing flights.

Effectively shaping digital transformation
Beckum, 19. May 2017

What will the world of logistics look like in a couple of years? Will drones with stock orders fly through storehouses, will robots deliver ordered goods to the final customer and will truck drivers activate 3D printers in their trailers to manufacture the order during transport?

Logistics is one of the industries where the influence of the digital transformation process is particularly strong. This is because digital logistics offers considerable potential when it comes to costs and speed. The smart integration of digital technologies can especially make intralogistics more efficient and environmentally safe.

BEUMER Group takes an active part in shaping this change initiated by networking and digitalisation. In addition to know-how in terms of digital technologies and processes, a major challenge is to plan and realise digital innovation together with the customer. On the one hand, potential brought by digital innovation is to be anticipated in the existing product portfolio. On the other hand, the focus of digital transformation is set on new business segments opening up for BEUMER Group.

The customer is at the centre of all development of digital business models. Close and iterative co-ordination with and involvement of the customer is therefore a key prerequisite for digital transformation. For BEUMER Group's customers, this creates sustainable value for tomorrow's logistics.
