Vacuum filler 4.0
IFC – intelligent interface between the filler and the clipper
IFC - intelligent interface safeguards process
The patented IFC interface (Intelligent Filler Clipper Interface) provides clear advantages in production thanks to synchronised and intelligent machine communication. The interface replaces product and process settings of the Handtmann VF 800 and Poly-clip Clipper production line. After the start of the production process, the clipper is controlled in real time via clip signals from the filler. Malfunctions or misproductions due to operating errors are eliminated. A smooth process flow is ensured.
Safe production start
After the product data has been entered in the clipper, the VF 800 automatically calculates the optimum filling and portioning parameters. They are transferred to the clipper where the basic data for safely starting the filling process is calculated. If the operator changes the filling output while the system is running the overall process is automatically adapted.
Significant productivity increase
In addition to simplified operation and increased process reliability, the intelligent networking of the machines also leads to less wear and an increase in portioning capacity. This is achieved by means of the synchronisation and controlled overlapping of the portioning and clipping cycles in both machines. Due to cycle overlapping, maximum acceleration and deceleration of the drives (which leads to increased wear) is avoided and higher output is attained.
|Productivity increase through IFC interface using liver sausage production as an example:|
Clipped liver sausage, 125 g portion, 38 calibre
|Maximum achievable portioning capacity (with optimally coordinated parameters):||VF 800 + Poly-clip FCA without IFC: 163 portions/min.|
|VF 800 + Poly-clip FCA with IFC: 183 portions/min.|
|>> 10 % higher portioning capacity due to IFC interface|
up to 10 %
- Up to 10 % higher production capacity thanks to optimum vacuum filler and clipper synchronisation
- Safe production start through automatic calculation of the optimum filling and portioning Parameters
- Easy operation and setting of product parameters at the vacuum filler only guarantee process reliability
- Reduced mechanical wear due to controlled overlap of portioning and clipping cycles
- Low noise level of the production line
Applications and Product examples
Portioning and clipping for meat, dairy, convenience and more applications.
