Beverage: End of Line Packaging

End of Line Beverage Packaging

The end of the line is the final phase of product packaging. Conveyors, palletizers, forklifts and personnel converge in this area and activity is near constant. The flow of cases into this area and the flow of assembled pallets leaving the area must be closely regulated to prevent line slowdowns and stoppages. Safety measures must also be in place to protect personnel from accident or injury. 

Our industry knowledge and expertise in sensors, safety control, LED lighting and indicators allow us to offer solutions that solve many of the most difficult applications in the final packaging area. From sensors capable of detecting targets with vibrant graphics, clear, shiny packaging to offering the most comprehensive collection of safety products in the industry, including heavy-duty safety light curtains and expandable safety controllers, you can rely on products from Banner to improve your packaging processes and address all your machine safeguarding requirements.

Barcode Confirmation on Pallet
Barcode Confirmation on Pallet

In the beverage filling industry, barcode technology can provide many benefits when shipping products among multiple locations. Shipping containers such as shrink wrapped pallets can be labeled with barcodes in order to more easily identify which product is present and ready to be shipped. A sensing solution needs to be present to confirm that the final, shrink-wrapped product is labeled correctly and matches the content inside.

Safeguarding the Palletizer and Stretch Wrapper
Safeguarding the Palletizer and Stretch Wrapper

Safeguarding areas around the palletizers and stretch wrappers can prove to be difficult because it involves multiple hazards. A scalable safety controller can help manage hazards related to the palletizer and stretch wrapper while ensuring efficient safeguarding processes.

Enunciation of Safety Conditions with Visual Indication
