Combi FCE 150R: the new DS Smith Packaging Systems machine

As a world premiere, DS Smith Packaging Systems will present at Interpack 2017 its new Combi FCE 150R machine, a full new technology for packaging end of line.
The Combi FCE 150R is a forming, packing and closing cases machine with a new robotic mandrel case former. Compare to the market existing offer, this machine allows an easier utilization and a faster production. High speed, high efficiency, forming repeatability and consistency, improving box performance and new box shapes are some of the quantifiable benefits.

The Combi FCE 150R is composed by four major parts: one mandrel case former infeed, one case filler entry packer infeed, one top case sealer outfeed and one top case closer.

 There are many points which make this machine revolutionary and especially different. Combining a robotic mandrel case former with a high speed robotic packing and a closing unit in a compact line, DS Smith Packaging Systems guarantee full benefits of its mandrel forming technology. 

 MATERIAL COST SAVING
- Higher case compression strength through precision forming and fluting integrity
-  Lower recycle paper combination – right weighting
-  Potential for case sizing optimization
-  Centering technology
-  Prevention from using inserts
-  Less waste

 LOGISTICS COST SAVING

-  Use of flat instead of folded blanks - up to 25% more blanks on pallet
- Improved box consistency allowing for less case over sizing. This often leads to bring more cases on pallet

 IMPROVED END OF LINE PACKAGING EFFICIENCY

-  Less waste
-  High speed
-  Less down time
-  Quicker changeover – first box perfect, no need for fine tuning
-  Precise case forming
-  Improved top or side casing
-  Improved top case sealing
-  Improved palettization

 IMPROVED BOX QUALITY PERCEPTION

-  Easy and excellent product differentiation through new box shapes
-  Easy SRP design forming – open pack, large side windows, 2 piece design etc…

On the technical side, the Combi FCE 150R offers a large number of key strengths:

  • formed case outfeed on two separate side lines
  • gluing from  top to bottom
  • single glue guns
  • Integrated glue tank
  • colour light coding for automatic diagnostic (time saving for the operator )
  • integrated electrical cabinets
  • integration of insert (option)
  • remote connection
  • Full automatic settings for change over
  • Lower blank loading height
  • friendly maintenance
  • low air consumption
