Horizontal storage system STORETEQ S-200 in Holzbronn
Time saving, transparency, and cost control - storage systems solve logistics. The STORETEQ S-200 and S-500 are our proven solutions in storage technology and offer numerous advantages for production. The material flow will be optimized and material consumption will be reduced.
HOMAG will show the maximum flexibility for the transport of different panel materials even with the “smallest” of the horizontal storage systems in Holzbronn. The reason for this is the combination of the storage system STORETEQ S-200 with the suction traverse ST71 in X-geometry. The suction traverse offers extraordinary possibilities for the material transport
Transport mistakes and relating false stocks are virtually excluded. The ejector technology of the suction traverse provides for an economical energy consumption. The air flow is individually adjustable with selective points to each panel specialty. The calculated panel parameters are automatically stored in the system and recalled in the case of need.
Panels are stored into and removed from the horizontal storage, collated, or transferred to the connected operating machine quickly, fully automatic and precisely. Panel saws can easily be integrated via standard interfaces. Furthermore, by using horizontal storage systems, different transport systems can be combined through which additional operating machines will be integrated, or offcuts could be returned into the storage. In brief: The storage decides and organizes the logistics so that operating machines can run optimally. Idle times are avoided due to a continuous material flow.
The decisive competition advantage by the use of a storage system arises through the factors time, transparency, and cost control. Outstanding characteristics are process safety, material overview, offcut management, and the structured process. On top of that, horizontal storages offer much leeway in combination with operating machines and in panel variety. They are the perfect solution for an efficient production.
Advantages of the STORETEQ S-200:
- High material variety with one storage system
- Quality and speed will be increased
- Logistical processes become more transparent
- A constant material overview is ensured
- Material consumption is optimized up to offcut parts
woodStore7 - Storage Management System for a transparent information and material flow
With woodStore, HOMAG equips its storage systems with an intelligent control system. It is the brain of each storage system and optimizes all processes in the storage. woodStore links the purchase system to the order processing, manages offcuts, and optimizes all material movements. With its modules, the storage control calculates a storage organization that best fits customer's demands.
In version 7, HOMAG continues focusing on operator convenience, safety and process optimization with woodStore. The different tools offer solutions for more optimization in the material management in the whole system storage - operating machine and, at the same time, strengthen the user safety. Particularly noteworthy is the “mobile operation”. Using it, customers have the opportunity to operate the storage mobile. Storing and removal orders, for example, can be directly controlled from the mobile application, a tablet, smartphone, etc. Different messages, such as production lists are also available, or you can get information about the various statistics that are provided by the storage.
The decisive advantage for the customer - clearly the flexibility. Where formerly all actions had to be carried out directly at a storage terminal, now, only access to the company’s wireless LAN is necessary to use the mobile operation.
Noteworthy in this context is the production analysis integrated into woodStore7. Adjusted to customer's specific production conditions, the woodStore Analyzer evaluates the whole storage movements and presents on this base how efficiently the storage works. The associated "expert system" generates different strategies on the base of this evaluation and gives tips on how to optimize the efficiency of the storage.
Carcass press CABTEQ S-200 in Holzbronn
CABTEQ is the perfect assembly aide for pressing of carcass furniture. The press has a wide range of applications, whether in furniture production, object and shopfitting, or in industrial special production.
The practice-oriented machine design makes our presses especially space saving. So, the CABTEQ S-200 fits into every workshop. Its pressing lamellas work as a unit, they are placed on rubbers and suspended. Pressure is very evenly distributed due to the fact that the pressing lamellas simultaneously impinge on the carcass. Tolerances in the carcass are better absorbed. Dense carcasses are produced, which are precisely pressed and perfectly rectangular.
Operation is simple and doesn’t require prior knowledge. You only have to place the carcass into the press and press the start button. This will start the press process. Assemble, connect and start.
Two speeds provide particular efficiency. One approaching speed (rapid speed) and a pressing speed. The lamellas run from their starting position towards the pressing position shortly in front of the carcass by pressing the button for rapid speed. Then it is switched to pressing speed. The rapid speed enables more pressed carcasses per shift.
Advantages of the CABTEQ S-200:
- Space saving by practice-oriented design
- Intuitive operation
- Dense, precisely pressed carcasses
- Avoidance of compressed air
- Plug & Play
Cardboard-box Cutting Machine PAQTEQ C-250 in Schopfloch
The cardboard cutting machine PAQTEQ C-250 enables individual, customized carton packaging for products - just in time. This creates an optimum in product protection and saves a lot of space, since from now on, it is being produced economically instead of expensively stored.
The cardboard-box cutting machine PAQTEQ C-250 process automatically endless corrugated paper to exactly fitting folding cartons. In this process the endless cardboard may of course vary in width and paper quality. A huge advantage for the user, since the time-consuming resetting of endless cardboard is omitted. Furthermore, all endless cardboard stacks are equipped with an intelligent rest length management. The end of the carton web is automatically recognized in the magazine chute and displayed to the operator via the machine control. The operator will then decide whether he will immediately carry out the necessary stack change or whether the cardboard-box cutting machine continues for the time being, and the stack change will be effected at a later time, more favorable for production. In this case, the control will automatically take cardboard webs of the next larger width from another magazine chute. So, the cycle of packaging does not have to be interrupted unintentionally. Thus, a fitting “tailor-made suit” is manufactured for each product just in time, as individually as it may be.
The machine cuts, perforates and grooves in serial production as well efficient and reliable as in batch size 1 production. This is possible because the PAQTEQ C-250 works according to the so called single point principle and resets automatically as needed within short time. Furthermore, it is possible to execute grooving and cutting in running direction of corrugated paper feed, and also transversal to running direction.
Up to 12 different cardboard typed - that vary in thickness, width and print (printed or not printed) - can be provided by different feeding systems. This leads to a high variety in packaging with low offcuts and the corresponding material saving. Data provision is effected via different entry possibilities, from manually up to automatic 3D scan.
Operation of a cardboard cutting machine is fun. The operating concept powerTouch and the PAQTEQ control intelliCut enable a very easy machine operation. A time consuming training is not necessary. A positive side effect of a PAQTEQ C-250: According to customer statements, operators are bubbling with creativity in regard to new packaging possibilities. Another source of inspiration to further optimize packaging is the PAQTEQ shop with more than 230 possible cardboard cuttings.
The PAQTEQ shop is a modern service tool exclusively available for users. Packaging designs can be ordered with only a few clicks. All packaging designs can easily be down loaded and directly assumed to the control. In addition, the cutting programs are equipped with essential performance indications and are visualized in 2D and 3D in the shop as well as directly in the machine. This too, makes the operation of the machine enormously easier.
The machine software intelliCut is easy to understand and operate. A graphic cutting pattern display with 3D carton graphic facilitates the handling. Cutting programs for more than 230 carton types can be found in the vksshop.com for both machines.
Cuttings already existing in PAQTEQ, are automatically updated. The correct packaging design can immediately be accessed in the machine.
Advantages of the PAQTEQ C-250:
- Individuality - transports the own demand to the customer
- Product protection - packed professionally and safe
- Space-saving - cost-efficient production instead of expensive storing
