Insulation becomes more and more important.
It is highly noticeable that insulation has become a very important aspect in world’s environmental improvements. Willems also contributes to this topic. Due to the growing demand for insulation Willems supplied a robot for fully automatic handling of rolls of insulation. A robot stacks 4 rolls together, so a wrapping system can bundle these together as a pack of 4. After the wrapping process the rolls are turned 90 ° , so they are standing up. 2 robots have been supplied for a project in USA. Two robots for maximising the total capacity. The robot is designed with a special gripper to handle the rolls of insulation. A special roller conveyor system is designed to handle the stacked rolls.
Project has been executed with Fanuc robot and Allen Bradley plc.
Fanuc robot palletisers, in addition to Kawasaki!
We also supply Fanuc robots in addition to Kawasaki! This type of robot has been specially developed by Fanuc for palletising and is equipped with the most modern technology to amply meet the demands of the users. operators without any special skills can program the robot and operate it daily, after technicians of Willems Baling Equipment have imparted some basic understandings.Fanuc robot palletisers, in addition to Kawasaki!
New: Compressed bales packed in paper!
Sustainability is an important matter these days. As packaging, paper is a good alternative to plastic and other fossil-fuel derived materials. Paper is made out of renewable raw materials, biodegradable and fully recyclable.
We developed a new baler that is able to compress and pack bales in paper packaging. This machine is suited for packaging bales in both paper and in PE. Paper and plastic packaging protects the bale from physical harm and damage and keeps the compression ratio intact.
Just like the Willems flat foil balers, the paper bale is formed from a roll of paper using a forming shoulder. Having bales made from paper on roll instead of premade bags saves a lot of costs.New: Compressed bales packed in paper!
New: A Willems baler without hydraulics
Willems has developed a baler that can press and pack bales with electric motors instead of hydraulic. This baler has been developed for products that require less baling and pressing force, such as hay.
The baler is equipped with Motion control. Motion control is controlling a movement via a certain movement profile, whereby mechanical influences (friction, temperature, load, etc.) are adjusted in such a way that the same movement repeats itself over and over again.
Advantages of presses with electric motors are:
- The press consumes relatively little energy
- No periodic oil change required
- Machine is low in decibels
- Maintenance costs are low.
In summary, this is an energy-efficient and practical way to compress and package products with a low pressing force.New: A Willems baler without hydraulics
IPM Trade Fair Essen
From 24 to 27 January 2023, Willems Baling Equipment was attending the IPM Fair in Essen, Germany as exhibitor.
