MARPAK & OMS Group: Your Best Solution for Big Formats

In the last few years, the tiles sector reached new horizons, redefining new qualitative and dimensional limits. In a short time, the standard formats have been overtaken by the big ones, obliging consequently the manufacturers to renew or enlarge their products range in order to satisfy the growth in demand. MARPAK/IT (OMS Group), leading company in the end of line and packaging solutions, in synergy with the OMS R&D department, makes a leap forward, ahead of time, developing new self-sizing packaging lines to process new formats.

The first line has been developed for CERAMICA FONDOVALLE, Modena/IT, a leading company in production and distribution of high-quality porcelain-stoneware tiles and slabs. The challenge was hard: to develop a single plant able to run different formats, 3600 mm x 1750 mm for the crate palletized products and 3200 mm x 800 mm for the rack-palletized slabs with a height up to 2 m and a weight up to 3,5 t. Totally provided by MARPAK, the line is composed of different in-line machines able to run automatically a random production. The first part of the line includes dedicated loading areas, followed by horizontal and vertical strapping machines, tasked of ensuring at the rack, the fragile and precious slabs, while an automatic corner applicator device, protects the edges.

The second part of the line is dedicated to protect the products from external factors. Composed by loading areas for all the other products, it includes self-sizing machines able to cover, with a protection film, 5 sides of the packages. A special thermo-shrinking machine heats up the film, deceloping a solid and strong block. This cutting-edge packaging line is able to reach a productivity of 20 packs per hour. The result in terms of protection and aesthetics makes the MARPAK line, your best choice for the big sizes.
