Grupo Argenta has once again relied on Innova Group technology to equip its new Factory 5 with two complete automated packaging lines. Argenta Factoría 5 is presented as one of the most technological production hubs of the ceramic group and also of the tile sector .
Total automation, industry 4.0 and sustainability come together in the packaging project with Innova, premiered at the end of 2021 in Vall d'Alba (Castellón),
The new factory in Argenta is dedicated to the manufacture of large-format rectified porcelain tiles, and in order to respond to its needs for high production and format specifications, Innova completed a project with two complete packaging lines of the Signature Argenta with the aim of total protection of your product .
With this double installation, Grupo Argenta now has 8 packaging lines with Innova, distributed among its different factories in Onda, Vilafamés and Vall d'Alba , in addition to other international projects.
Total automation of the end of line
At the end of the line at Factory 5, the entire process is fully automated: from the palletizing line, the load is transported by AGV vehicles to the packaging lines. Once the AGV deposits the pallet at the entrance of the respective line, a final packaging process begins that ensures the best support and protection for its transport over thousands of km. Once the pallet is packed and wrapped, it is again transported by AGV for its logistical storage. All without human intervention.
The Signature Argenta line combination
The project consisted of a double packaging station, with the combination of Signatura Argenta systems, as it was the same one chosen in all its packaging lines due to its maximum protection and fastening results.
- Input line for AGV
The inputs of both lines are adapted to the input of the pallet by AGV, which automatically communicates to the PLC of the packaging line the specific pallet and packaging format that must be applied for that type of pallet.
- Horizontal Strapping System with Edge protectors
The horizontal pallet strapping system compacts and holds the load horizontally at various heights. In the case of requiring edge protection by type of format, the system includes a edge protector applicator that places them prior to strapping.
- Ring wrapper system
Next, the Innova AWR Pro automatic wrapping machine performs the most complete clamping of the Argenta ceramic product. With a double film carriage system for greater speed, it compacts, holds and unites the merchandise with the pallet in a way that respects ceramic boxes.
- Stretch Hood lining system
Both lines have their own final pallet wrapping system for a faster packaging process. The Stretch Hood Pro System | S2 by Innova provides the Argenta product with total waterproof protection for indoor or outdoor storage. The Stretch Hood film is one of the most advanced on the market since it is a multilayer LLPDE film with barrier properties against rain, humidity, dust and an anti-UV filter.
- Output line and connection with AGV
An automatic weighing system is included in the outgoing transport line that weighs the already packed load and sends the information in real time to the labeling system.
The entire packaging station culminates in an external accumulation line for the collection of pallets by AGV and subsequent fully automated logistics classification.
More than technology partners
With the Argenta Factory 5 project, the relationship between Argenta and Innova is further strengthened as its technological partner at the end of the line. In fact, Argenta has communicated its "satisfaction with the results of the new project, in line with our production objectives and final load protection".
For Innova «it is a pride to provide packaging solutions for this large ceramic group. Our mission is to accompany and continue alongside Argenta on his technological path. Our vision is to continue working for a more connected and sustainable industry together with a partner with whom we share values and a passion for R&D, sustainability and people's talent."
