Intelligent Direct Handling (IDH)

Handling system for biscuits and crackers with picker technology based on linear motors
Submitted by: Syntegon Packaging Systems AG
The submission is ready for the market but has not yet been introduced (prototype).

What the jury said:

Grouping unsorted long-life bakery products such as biscuits and crackers from a feed belt to the packaging machine currently requires a lot of space, whether this is done with grouping belt combinations or pick-and-place solutions. The innovative use of linear technology drastically reduces this space requirement and enables outputs of up to 1,250 pieces per minute in a fraction of the area. Despite the compact arrangement, there is a high degree of variability with regard to formats, pack patterns and line layouts.
