„Knauf Performance Materials Plant Neuburg a.d.Donau - PACPAL Palletizer 1 year in operation
As part of a plant modernization at the Knauf Performance Materials Plant Neuburg an der Donau with a layer palletizer of the PACPAL series from Claudius Peters Projects, the commissioning was successfully completed at the beginning of 2022. The new customized palletizer was integrated into the existing bagging and packaging line.
At the Neuburg a.d. Donau plant, Knauf fills the product Perlite from its own production in 21 to 150-liter bags with pack heights of up to 2300mm. The special challenge in this project was to guide the product flow of the existing two filling and palletizing lines via now one palletizing line and to handle the large differences in the full bag dimensions with one machine.
The existing downstream stretch wrapping line for load securing was connected with minimal conversion effort. Knauf Performance Materials and Claudius Peters Projects have jointly and successfully optimized the bagging lines and warehouse logistics in terms of flexibility, increased capacity reserve, space requirement and travel distances.
Plant manager Dieter Seibold is positive about the production result "Fine – everything is running smooth!"
