SYSTEM AVAILABILITY

BETTER PERFORMANCE, LESS DOWNTIME

All KOCH blister machines, cartoners and packaging lines feature a user-friendly design, are easy to operate, offer quick format changes and top packaging precision. We assist you in fully tapping into that potential and to keep the availability of your system on a consistently high level. From temporary production support in case of bottlenecks to a comprehensive production analysis of the entire packaging process with subsequent output optimization.

PRODUCTION ANALYSIS & OUTPUT OPTIMIZATION

When we conduct a production analysis, KOCH technicians use a standardized methodology to examine your packaging process and identify where it can be optimized. We will then develop proposed solutions and implement them. This could boost your output by up to 20%, make processes more efficient and stable and increase the run time of the machine.

SERVICE AGREEMENT

Custom KOCH service packages guarantee a high machine availability, e.g. through the preventative replacement of wear parts. Regular status reports keep you informed of the current performance of the systems and demonstrate optimization potentials regarding the effectiveness and the machine lifetime. Custom KOCH training courses grant your employees the necessary qualification. In addition, we support the test run of your systems until a fault-free, efficient production has resumed.

MACHINE MODERNIZATION

You want to bring your machines up to the latest technological standards and comply with country-specific track & trace guidelines? Use state-of-the-art technology to reduce maintenance costs? Increase machine safety as well as production and process reliability? Guarantee the availability of spare parts or regulate controller access? Our experts will analyze the current status of your machines, propose modernization measures and implement them in a way that disrupts your packaging process as little as possible.

 

SOME MODERNIZATION SERVICES AT A GLANCE:

  • Security updates: Consultation, hardware upgrades, updating the control technology, risk analysis & conformity assessment.
  • Automatic, reproducible setting of process pressures: Replacement of the handwheels for setting the preforming, forming and deforming pressure with electronic, proportional controllers. Process pressures are saved so they can be reproduced. When the format is changed, they can be called up via the Touch Control Panel.
  • Retrofitting to KeyPilot: Security keys to the machine system with tiered authorizations based on employee qualifications. Defined functions can be accessed via RFID – for individual systems or all KOCH packaging machines on site.
  • IPC-based controller: Replacing the previous controller with an IPC-based system with cutting edge Ethernet field bus technology and supplemental functions for greater productivity and flexibility.
  • Largely maintenance-free sealing unit: Installation of current KOCH sealing stations without hydraulic unit. For a faster, quieter and largely maintenance-free operation.
  • Servo motor drive for forming station & blister pack transfer: Use of a pneumatic infeed at the forming station and blister pack transfer with a servo motor-powered unit makes simpler and faster set-up processes possible with stored, format-specific parameters.
  • KOCH rebuild: Used KOCH packaging machines, up to date mechanically and electronically, with state-of-the-art IPC controller & easy operator guidance at the touchscreen. With comprehensive warranty upon request. Access to the complete KOCH Support + Services portfolio.

PRODUCTION SUPPORT

Our packaging professionals and service technicians will temporarily assist your production. For example in the first weeks following the commissioning of a new system, in case of bottlenecks caused by holidays or spikes in orders, when introducing shift work, or when using new format parts or new film. For as long as you need us. That's how we keep your production going and provide your employees valuable expertise.

MACHINE TRANSPORTS

Working with a competent logistics partner, we will move your machines on time: Within a production hall, to a new building at the same site or even across borders. Fast, precise and covered by insurance during the entire move. Includes an expert setup, inspection (modernization upon request) as well as re-commissioning and training of the new personnel.
