Our automated systems are designed to the highest level of performance and safety

Each element of the processing line is used for the continuous processing of the raw materials and finished products in order to ensure the required level of productivity. Different elements and systems are available for the level of automation that is required all to ensure efficiency, safety & reliability.

Our experience ensures that we can supply the appropriate unit from a hopper feeder on the infeed to a moulding machine to complete computer controlled systems with many integrated process machines.

The highest level of performance is our objective:

  • Design and construction specific to customer requirements
  • Low maintenance design and components
  • User-friendly control stations
  • Standard mechanical and electrical components with worldwide supply
  • Internet access for online maintenance is available
  • Highest levels of safety systems

Where can we help you?

WEINIG Unstacking systems

The raw material supply is normally arranged in stacks of different sizes and formations. Different technical systems are available for individual layer removal appropriate to the material and type of stack:

Tilting systems using gravity to slide off the layers.
Lengthwise pushing systems to give a more controlled de-stack
Vacuum de-stacking of layers

WEINIG Separating systems

Separating systems are used to feed individual components to a following process:

Unscramblers are used for material to be separated normally following tilting systems in horizontal operations.
Flat separation of material to allow the creation of defined feeding of parts
Cross transfer with clamping for multiple widths and extreme cross sections, increased process security and often performance.

WEINIG Cross-Cut systems

Creation of multiple fixed lengths at the infeed during cross transport:

WEINIG Infeed systems

Feeding of parts to the processing machine from a horizontal cross transfer with buffer to a 90 degree feeding unit with accelerating roller unit to ensure controlled end to end feeding or with specified gaps.

Vertical hopper feeder manually loaded

WEINIG Inspection systems

Meeting each client's individual requirements means understanding each individual part so that the correct decision can be made during the processing operation. Safety inspections are mandatory in the case of safety related components!

Part specific inspection due to size, shape, moisture or other requirement can be done using automatic sensors and based on known values. Actions can then be carried out if needed, e.g. rotating, sorting out, cutting or marking of the part. 

Component specific application of marks, labels etc. can be made if needed.

Cross transfer systems with turning
Detection of end grain structure and turning
Moisture measuring with removal system
End impact stress grading equipment for checking of the modulus of elasticity
Inspection of important side with part turner
Metal detector
Spray marking systems for part or area highlighting
Manual system using fluorescent chalk with removal gate
Labelling systems

WEINIG Transfer, alignment and sorting systems

The requirement for continuous and efficient operation with perfect part tracking and distribution needs to be controlled at each transfer.

The benefit of this is demonstrated through maximized performance when a system is restarted following a fault caused by a work-piece.

Fixed or driven end fence
Spiral roller conveyor with driven end fence
Angled roller conveyor and driven end fence

WEINIG Cross transport systems

All parts whether still raw material or finished need to be conveyed depending on its stage of processing.  The largest range of solutions is available for lateral transport and often in conjuction with other tasks.

Flat topped roller chain with heavy duty plastic guides
Flat belt cross systems
Right angle transfer system
Inclined flat belt transfer
Inclined chain transfer with dogs for precise transfer

WEINIG Bundle forming and packaging systems

Bundle forming and packaging units are available depending on the output needed and the level of automation required. Systems with a low or high level of automation are available depending on the output needed and level of operator involvement. Bundles with different cross sections, lengths and weights can be formed.

Semi-automatic bundle forming station.
High speed automatic bundle forming station for battens
Automatic single or double building units for small to medium bundles
Integration of strapping and shrink foil systems

WEINIG Stacking systems

Stable  packages are important for safe transportation. These can be achieved on suitable products by using Weinig stacking systems achieving optimum sizes and weights. Additional stabilising parts can also be incorporated to separate layers or packages.  

Stackers are available for different:

  • Weights
  • Stack dimensions
  • Performance requirements
Offset layer formation
Stacker for bundles
Continuous stacking of single pieces
Automatic stabilising stick application

WEINIG Stacking and packing systems

Some materials and surfaces need careful handling and extra protection against environmental conditions during transport and storage. This can be provided with different coverings and packaging operations.

Automatic or semi-automatic foil covering
Finished pack strapping

WEINIG HighMech Systems

Following many years producing automated systems Weinig have a portfolio of standardised systems based on individual elements. These can be offered as ready designed units or tailored to suit a client's individual requirement. A small modification often leads to the perfect solution of the defined task.

WEINIG Specialist Solutions High Tech systems

Integration of multiple logically sequences production machines within an automated system

Specially designed solutions for specific products and conditions based on space or environment

Integration of special tasks by means of innovative materials, production procedures or processes

WEINIG Safety Concept

Responsibility to safety is equally important both to users and suppliers alike, with accompanying legislative directives that must be complied with.

WEINIG system concepts have all the necessary safety components and certifications needed, particular attention has been paid to user-friendly design and practical operation. Individual safety zones and safety systems including interlocked gates are included as a matter of course. Where appropriate in the event of malfunction diagnostic information can be displayed at the control console to allow fast location.

WEINIG Installation and Training

The true quality of a system design, no matter how well thought out is only really confirmed after installation and start up for the first time.  Our technicians are therefore responsible for any in-house testing needed and for the un-packing of the delivery to ensure that the set-up and hand-over on site can occur without any problems.

Our specialists can be scheduled on site in accordance with the progress. They can be arranged as agreed to ensure that their tasks are swiftly completed. Alternatively, a site manager function can be supplied if clients prefer or are able to carry out the installation themselves.

Introductory equipment and safety training of the operating staff is normally performed during the start-up phase.
