The “end of line” technology offered by OCME and Robopac for the Tissue sector continues to strengthen. These two long standing companies from the packaging machines sector, having signed an important company agreement last May, are today able to propose a series of technological solutions of excellence, with high added value for the paper industry.

A leadership that has consolidated further following the agreement between Robopac and Sacmi Packaging, regarding the end-of-line automation and handling of the finished product, which has passed under the control and management of Robopac. “Thanks to this partnership and the technologies available from Sacmi Packaging – says Enrico Aureli, CEO of OCME – our group expands and strengthens its end-of-line offer, particularly in the Tissue sector, but also in the Food, Home and Personal Care sector and Beverage.”

“As we had foreseen – says Carlotta Gatteschi, Vice-President of the OCME Board of Directors -the agreement with Robopac is allowing us to grow in terms of industrial culture, technological excellence, product quality and internationalism that represent the identity of our company.”

OCME has been operating since the 80s particularly in the Tissue sector, where it is recognized as a leading provider of end-of-line systems. Now, thanks to the integration with Robopac and the agreement between the Aureli family and Sacmi, it unites us in this specific market, with even greater force, as a single reference for palletizing, wrapping and handling systems from the packaging machine to the warehouse. More than 1,000 installations in over 100 different countries around the world guarantee the reliability, quality and efficiency proven in the field.

The OCME and Robopac integrated equipment available to the Tissue sector include handling systems for bundles and cartons; robotic and traditional palletizing systems; wrapping pallets with stretch film; pallet handling systems with laser guided vehicles (LGV); complete end-of-line and control systems with product tracking up to the warehouse.

The main products treated are: toilet paper and kitchen rolls in displays and bundles, napkins and handkerchiefs in cartons and industrial rolls. Our experience, accumulated over the years, allows us to guarantee maximum flexibility in dealing with different formats on the line, extreme care in handling packages in high-speed lines with any format, without damaging the packaging and managing product configurations on the pallet through a dedicated simulation software.

For the tissue production industry, OCME proposes integrated automation systems for the end-of-line

One of OCME’s strong points is the management of “double stack” (two pallets overlapped in the palletizing area and wrapped separately). This method allows a reduction in the handling and loading of our laser guided shuttles (LGV), while maintaining the separation of the individual stack thanks to independent wrapping, bringing an additional management flexibility to the warehouse.

Furthermore, the new motorized carbon layer gripper, designed and engineered exclusively for our Tissue customers, allows our palletizing robot a greater flexibility to manage complex pattern at high speed, modulating the grip without risk of product damage. At last, the palletizing program management is facilitated thanks to OCME’s “Program maker” software, provided with all our installations, to manage standard pattern and to create new patterns in a simple and intuitive way.

In order to meet the needs of the customer, OCME uses an internal network of engineers capable of realizing the best end-of-line layout through a dedicated study. In addition to providing the customer with machines and long-lasting configurations, OCME also offers a complete after-sales service which uses the latest augmented reality and remote connection technologies to quickly intervene if needed. In the DNA of OCME and Robopac there is the great ability to provide integrated services and added value systems, adapted to customer needs and designed to improve the key performance indicators of the customer.
