Filling process 4.0

Maintenance during operation

The rotary filling line meets strict safety requirements and increases production capacity
The CFT Group (CTF) designs and builds production lines and turnkey systems primarily for the food and beverage industry. One of its customers, Menz & Gasser, which specializes in producing and packaging preserves and honey in portions for hotels, restaurants and catering, had CFT develop a rotary filling plant to a very high specification. For this project, the CFT Group relied on motion control solutions from Siemens.
The plant was to meet strict safety requirements and increase production capacities, while being exceptionally user-friendly. Key elements were extremely easy maintenance of the machines, ideally during operation. To achieve this, CFT turned to motion control solutions from the Siemens portfolio. This ensured that not only were the customer’s strict safety requirements satisfied but the cost for planning and commissioning each individual machine could be reduced by approximately 30 percent due to the Siemens technology.
Precise control of the torque and speed allows employees to complete minor interventions on the machine while it is still running
