Bruchsal, Cologne, Anuga FoodTec 2015: In modern production
plants, packaging often needs to be turned in several different
directions. Trans-Tech Hysek has made this its specialism. The
company manufactures turners that rotate products and packaging
into the correct position during the production process. The feed
system is powered by mechatronic drive units made by SEWEURODRIVE.
All kinds of beverages need to be turned upside down in some form or
other in the filling plants, be it for hygiene reasons, to print the container
or for packaging purposes. Trans-Tech Hysek in Kissing, near
Augsburg, produces turners for this purpose. These are hollowed-out
plastic bodies with an internal design that carries on conveying the cans
at the same speed while also turning them. The block-shaped turners
are installed on the production lines and can be removed and replaced
with ease for other product runs. The FLEXTWIST turner is even able to
process cans of varying sizes at one and the same time without any
need to change over the format mechanically.
Trans-Tech Hysek installs drives from SEW-EURODRIVE in the
packaging feed mechanism or in larger turner units such as the
FLEXTWIST product line. The company is making greater use of
compact and economical MOVIGEAR® mechatronic drive units. Gear
unit, motor and drive electronics are integrated in a single, compact
housing. The mechatronic units are very energy-efficient and have a
high overload capacity. Despite having an optimum low continuous
power rating, the MOVIGEAR® drives can start up a plant effortlessly –
even after it has been out of action for a lengthy period. MOVIGEAR ®
also ensures the levels of safety necessary in food and beverage
production. The motor and electronics do not require fans and are fully
measures, including surface protection categories OS1, 2 and 3 and the
