Conveyor control system


HEUFT synchron TXI

Standstills ruled out: a conveyor control system with vision.

The overall efficiency of your filling line leaves much to be desired even though the individual machines function optimally? Then there is probably a problem with the container flow between the devices. The HEUFT synchron conveyor control system puts things right. It accelerates the containers smoothly, closes gaps, optimises the conveyor speed and increases the efficiency of the complete line.


Conveyor control system

Closing gaps and preventing jams:  regulating the conveyor speed.

Without pressure, gentle and efficient:  the HEUFT synchron TXI implements a regulated bottle flow in real time.  The conveyor control system always knows about its current status in an intelligent and foresighted way.  Thus it can close gaps gently and prevent jams in good time.


It regulates the conveyor speed harmoniously and accelerates the containers smoothly and without impact pressure for this.  This protects the bottles and conveyors, reduces noise and increases the efficiency of the complete line.



Electronic block operation

Supplying master machines continuously:  single-lane blocking and laning.

Rinser, filler and labeller:  the bottles have to be one behind the other without gaps before they enter master machines such as these.  The HEUFT synchron TXI considers the single-lane line sections as a whole in order to ensure this.


It follows the individual positions of the bottles, links the calculated results and in this way achieves a carefully controlled bottle flow.  Gaps are closed gently without creating new ones.  Whether the effective electronic blocking of two master machines or the dynamic laning of the bottles:  the HEUFT synchron TXI even copes with demanding tasks effortlessly.



Regulating the buffer sections

Avoiding standstills:  controlling the mass transport.

Foresighted, in good time and effective:  the HEUFT synchron TXI stops malfunctions in the mass transport before they can spread to the single-lane line sector.  It controls the buffer sections with vision.  This effectively prevents blockages and standstills of the master machines.


Optimal operating conditions are the result when this is integrated into the control system.  For example specifically regulating the speed of the washing machine not only avoids stops but also prevents the spreading of lye.  This safeguards the product quality sustainably.  The bottles are transported smoothly and without pressure being applied to them in the buffer sections controlled by the HEUFT synchron TXI.  Gaps in the mass transport are closed gently.  In this way full utilisation is always guaranteed.



Container laning

Dividing up the bottle flow:  reliable container distribution.

Controlled, gentle and quiet:  the HEUFT traxx and HEUFT XY laning systems, which are perfectly coordinated with the conveyor control system, take over the bottles which have been precisely laned onto up to four lanes by the HEUFT synchron TXI.  They even take unstable empty and full bottles to the correct lane in an upright position and without falling over.  And this occurs with minimum noise emission.




Controlling centrally:  one platform for all requirements.

Precise, network-compatible and cross-system:  the HEUFT SPECTRUM TX forms the basis for different technologies, modules and functions.  The devices of the generation of the same name can be exactly adapted to individual requirements on site and retrofitted at any time due to this universal platform.


A cross-system component equality of 70 per cent ensures a high availability of spare parts.  The central HEUFT SPECTRUM TX control unit creates a high level of precision during continuous product tracking and quality assurance due to its multiprocessing capability.  A future-proof network connection ensures reliable remote maintenance and production data acquisition for optimum efficiency and productivity.  In-house developed hardware and software and its own operating system ensure computing power and offer no opportunity for viruses or malware.



Operating HEUFT systems reliably:  graphical user interface with practical tools.

Clear, helpful and specific:  the HEUFT PILOT graphical user interface convinces due to an easy to understand, multilingual menu structure with extensive auxiliary tools.  Therefore the reliable operation of the HEUFT SPECTRUM TX systems is not difficult.


Important information and clear error messages with service notes provide the respective user with specific support.  This avoids incorrect adjustments and shortens standstills e.g. during brand changes.  Password protected operator levels adapted to the respective area of responsibility also contribute to this.  Also integrated:  a complete online user manual and a tool for the uncomplicated identification and direct ordering of spare parts.


Network technologies

Networking everything:  online connection for increased efficiency and quality.

Information transmission in real time, production data acquisition, line analysis and remote maintenance:  networking is the answer!


HEUFT systems have future-proof network interfaces (Gigabit Ethernet and TCP / IP) for an online connection via the Internet and the database interface (SQL / DDE) for top line efficiency and an optimum quality management with considerably faster and easier workflows.  Therefore production data, shift records, productivity faults and HACCP limit value analyses are available network-wide.  The result:  early identification of quality and efficiency problems.  The firewall protected direct connection to the HEUFT TeleService makes competent remote maintenance possible all around the clock.
