SKAKO semi–automatic packaging machine 20 December 2021

SKAKO Vibration has announced that it has optimised its compact weighing and packing system, which can be used to fill different kinds of carton boxes and plastic or steel returnable boxes (KLTs)

SKAKO’s system consists of a vibrating storage feeder; a vibrating feeder; a chute system with accumulation possibility; a table with integrated load cells; and an integrated sample/check weighing platform. It can be configured in different sizes and supplied with a lift and tip unit. The lift tipper can be configured according to the customer’s specific container/containers.

The system is especially suited for short and medium size production badges, as it is easy to operate and reprogramme. The SKAKO packing machine has a compact, single floor, design, allowing it to be placed in a limited floor space without the need for extra ceiling height. The machine also has an open construction, which makes the process both accessible and easily monitored. This is important for the fastener and automotive industry, which usually operates with many different items, thus has the need to be able to switch from one to another, without the risk of getting them mixed up.

SKAKO Vibration A.S has been manufacturing light to medium duty vibratory feeders and screens since 1963. The hardware industry is a significant and growing part of SKAKO’s business – especially feeding, weighing and dosing equipment for heat treatment lines. Therefore the semi-automatic system for the packing industry fits perfectly and SKAKO´s know-how could be used.
