Filling and Wrapping machine ARM
Last year, after opening a US sales office, company started working with Rockwell Automation. New supplier offered more accepted control solution for the US market and better support.
The ARM Filling and Wrapping Machine uses a complete, integrated control solution from Rockwell Automation, from the PLC down to the pushbuttons.
“Our machine, that is designed to fill and wrap butter, margarine and other edible fats in aluminum foil laminates or parchment paper, will normally be positioned in the middle of a processing line,” explains Karolis Samušis, CEO of AB FASA, “often followed by a conveyor, which takes the wrapped products onto secondary packaging stations and eventually on to pallets. Its primary strength is its simplicity. The machine is incredibly easy to use and is far less complex than other units available on the market. However, this simplicity is not at the sacrifice of flexibility as we believe we can offer one of the widest ranges of packaging sizes and formats on the market – from 8 to 1,000 g. It is also very stable and easy to maintain.
As well as the excellent support with Rocwell Automation, FASA have also optimised designs due to having a lower overall part count, thanks to integrated and optimised products that also save space in the control cabinet. This has also resulted in less overall wiring.
From a customer perspective, Karolis Samušis, concludes: “Rockwell Automation helped us from the very early stages and in an ongoing capacity, it is also able to offer better, quicker support in the US (and worldwide) with spares from local warehouses.”
