    With our new FLEXsystems we have developed a very flexible modular-based system for thermoforming which consists of our FLEX products:
      • FLEX PACKING TABLE

      • The FLEX Packing Table transfers the stacked products from the out conveyor of the thermoforming machine and down to packaging level, which eliminates the need of a packing platform.

        The height of the packing conveyor can be adjusted to fit the height of the operator, in order to secure ergonomically correct working conditions.

        Process overview
        • Infeed buffer
        • Handling & bring down
        • Buffer packing

        Datasheet & options
        The FLEX Packing Table is easily integrated, with its infeed buffer and height adjustable packing height and options like telescopic conveyors and much more.
        Download our brochure and read our complete datasheet and options for the FLEX Packing Table.
      • FLEXSTACKER

      • The FLEX Stacker combines stacks of thermoformed parts to a predefined stack length and delivers them on a conveyor belt ready for packing.

        Process overview
        • Infeed buffer
        • Handling & stacking
        • Buffer for packing
      • FLEXSLEEVER

      • FLEXsleever is our newest member of the KILDE family. More than 40 years of experience with production automation went in to the design and development of this new solution for the thermoforming industry.

        The FLEXsleever stacks thermoformed parts to stacks of a predefined height, seals them in foil bags (Sleeving) and delivers them on a conveyor belt ready for packing.

        The FLEXsleever can be integrated seamlessly into your existing production line, where the infeed of the FLEXsleever receives the thermoformed units ready for handling and stacking. From here the units are sealed in foil bags (Sleeved) and ready for packaging.

        The FLEXsleever can handle between 597 and 1578 stacks per hour, depending on your production capacity and needs.

        Datasheet - Max sleeved stacks/hour
        1 stack per bag = 597 stacks/hour
        2 stacks per bag = 1019 stacks/hour
        4 stacks per bag = 1578 stacks/hour

        Options

        • Intermediate buffer conveyor belt
        • Transverse pusher for automatic removal of test parts
        • Printer
        • Format set; For every new product, for unsleeved operation and for removal of excess foil
      • FLEX PAD INSERTER

      • Due to the fact that the PAD INSERTER unit and the dispenser unit can be placed virtually anywhere, the solution is very flexible. The PAD INSERTER unit can be built in-line with the thermoforming machine or placed in an outside line. The dispenser unit can be placed close to the absorber padding unit - even on another floor.

        The PAD INSERTER as standard, offers 4 rows of absorber pads. They are cut into the required length and are placed on the conveyor.

        A Scara robot with a suction head picks up the pads and places them in the trays. Different suction heads cover different trays. As an option the suction head can rotate 90° if required. The cycle is 30 pick-ups per minute.

        The PAD INSERTER unit can be fitted with glue applicator heads. The glue is sprayed on the trays just before the absorber pads are placed.

        If the absorber pads are welded into the trays, the unit can be fitted with an ultrasonic welder. The pads are placed and welded to the tray by the suction head in one operation.

        Process overview
        • Unrolling
        • Cutting
        • Placement & fixing

        Datasheet & options
        The dispenser unit handles as standard 4 x Ø1200mm rolls with a width of 75 – 150 mm.

        When the rolls are empty a loading system replaces the empty rolls. You can reload the system with new rolls during normal operation.

        The new absorber rolls are welded together with the ends of the remaining absorber lengths. A buffer system ensures that the PAD INSERTER unit runs continuously during refill.

        Download our brochure and read our complete datasheet and options for the FLEX Pad Inserter.
      • OCTOPUS

      • The OCTOPUS is our fully automated machine, for stacking thermoformed parts to stacks of a predefined length. After being stacked, the parts are sealed in foil bags (Sleeved). The OCTOPUS erects cardboard boxes and packs the sleeved units into the boxes.

        From here, the boxes are palletised and ready for shipping!

        Process overview
        • Handling & stacking
        • sleeving
        • box erecting
        • packing
        • palletising

        Datasheet & options
        Want to know more about the OCTOPUS? Download our brochure from the link box and read more about the data and options for our new OCTOPUS.

        OCTOPUS I
        OCTOPUS I is the smallest basic configuration of the OCTOPUS program. Even in the smallest execution it is possible to configure the robot cell to full functionality.

        All functions are performed by only one robot. Therefore the capacity is limited compared to that of OCTOPUS I HS and OCTOPUS II.

        We live in a dynamic world and sometimes the conditions, which existed at the time the machine was bought, change. Options which are deselected when buying an OCTOPUS I can later be integrated without significant extra costs.

        OCTOPUS I HS

        OCTOPUS I HS is, besides the robot, equipped with a unit, which picks the parts from the buffer conveyor, makes the double stacking and feeds the parts to the sleeving unit.

        Thus robot capacity is freed meaning that OCTOPUS I HS is much faster than OCTOPUS I

        Furthermore OCTOPUS I HS has the advantage compared to OCTOPUS I that there is only one simple tool, which is placed on the infeed side. Thus the costs in connection with introduction of new products are reduced.

        OCTOPUS II
        OCTOPUS II is equipped with two robots carrying out all handling tasks. OCTOPUS II is the product of the OCTOPUS family, which offers the highest degree of flexibility and the highest number of functions.

        In addition to the functions, which are offered by OCTOPUS I HS, OCTOPUS II is able to rotate the parts in the stacking tower. This function is used for turning the products according to the specified packaging pattern.

        By rotating the parts it is possible to work with packaging patterns in cartons and gitterboxes where some of the stacks are turned in order to optimise use of space.
      • KILDE MOVER

      • The KILDEMOVER is an AIV(Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle), which fully automatic handles and transports goods and materials. Unlike an AGV (Autonomous Guided Vehicle) the KILDEMOVER makes no use of magnets or other signaling devices in floors/walls which saves you up to 15% deployment costs. The basis unit is an ADEPT LYNX from the company Omron, one of the world’s leading producers of AIV’s. By means of intelligent software and laser technology, the KILDEMOVER can safely self-navigate at the workplace among permanent or moveable obstacles, crowded, peopled environments or other places where the space is cramped. With an integrated conveyor our standard model of the KILDEMOVER can automatize receipt and delivery of goods, boxes and other units. The opportunity for integration of an AVI in your company are numerous and therefore we design custom-made solutions together with our customers, thereby securing stabile CE-approved solutions.
