Telmotor’s specialized consulting and assistance, combined with the high performance of Siemens products, have allowed Agripak, leader in the production of plastic processing machinery, to obtain a state-of-the-art system in terms of total safety.
The security system, developed by Telmotor, as Distributor Solution Partner for the Digital Factory and Process Industries and Drives Divisions of Siemens, intervenes to limit the speed of the rollers on the machines, in case of protections opening.
The Agripak exigency and the solution proposed :
The primary requirement of Agripak was to find a highly qualified technical support, with which to achieve a solid and lasting partnership over time.
Telmotor was once again confirmed not as a mere supplier of products, but as a solution developer, able to guarantee its interlocutors highly specialized service and advice in any context of application.
The customer was offered a package of Siemens solutions, from motors to the PLC, to the HMI up to the drives and LD with the addition of extended safety for all the inverters of the G120 family.
The safety extended to all the inverters of the Sinamics G120 family was also integrated.
Security that was then extended, with additional license, to the opening of the machine repairs with Safety Limited Speed (SLs).
In this way, in the case of any machine-protection mechanical maintenance, the Sls is duly activated for all the inverters, thus bringing motors to the due slow safety speed.
La consulenza e assistenza specializzata di Telmotor, unita alle alte prestazioni dei prodotti Siemens, hanno permesso ad Agripak, specializzata nella produzione di macchinari per la lavorazione della plastica, di ottenere un sistema all’avanguardia e in totale sicurezza.
Il sistema di sicurezza, messo a punto da Telmotor, in qualità di Distributore Solution Partner per le Divisioni Digital Factory e Process Industries and Drives di Siemens, interviene per limitare la velocità dei rulli sulle macchine, in caso di apertura delle protezioni.
L’esigenza di Agripak e la soluzione proposta :
L’esigenza primaria di Agripak era di trovare un supporto tecnico altamente qualificato, con il quale realizzare una partnership solida e duratura nel tempo.
Telmotor si è confermata ancora una volta non unsemplice fornitore di prodotti, bensì uno sviluppatore di soluzioni, capace di garantire ai propri interlocutori servizio e consulenza altamente specializzati in qualsiasi contesto di applicazione.
Al cliente è stato proposto un pacchetto di soluzioni Siemens, dai motori al Plc, all’Hmi fino agli azionamenti e LD con l’aggiunta delle safety estese per tutti gli inverter della famiglia G120.
Integrata è anche la sicurezza estesa a tutti gli inverter della famiglia Sinamics G120.
Sicurezza che è poi stata estesa, con licenza aggiuntiva, all’apertura dei ripari macchina con Safety Limited Speed (Sls).
In questo modo, nel caso di una qualsiasi manutenzione meccanica di protezione della macchina, si attiva per tutti gli inverter la Sls, grazie alla quale i motori vengono portati a una velocità lenta di sicurezza.
ZERO WASTE. BIG IMPACT
AGRIPAK greener processes for sustainability and re-cycling in plastics
This EPS (Semi-expanded/foamed PS) DISH TRAY for PIZZA TAKE AWAY is a simple “greener” example.
Made from semi-expanded PS material, it features insulating plus : the pizza keeps warmer and crunchy, for longer and your hands do not burn when handling it during transport.
The reliefs on the bottom of the tray are in fact specially designed for a perfect pizza ventilation.
While the side ribs grant a greater mechanical resistance when stacking more trays, allowing at the same time the steam to escape, thus avoiding the formation of water drops inside the pizza container itself.
It is ready-to-use, unlike the pizza cardboard that requires time to be assembled.
It is easily washable and re-usable at home, or it can be 100% recycled to produce other EPS pizza plates or other EPS items. Therefore perfectly responsive to the concept of Packaging “Circular Economy”.
And really GREAT the ECOLOGICAL IMPACT when compared to the cardboard box for takeaway pizza now in use. This last in fact becomes easily dirty and oil soaked with no possibility of being recycled, but with billions of not-reusable pieces ending-up in landfills yearly, in the world.
So for “warmer” information on our AGRIPAK greener technology , do not hesitate to contact us.
Our experts will be pleased to introduce you to what nowadays recognized as an important “Regenerative System” towards Plastics Sustainability and Re-cycling.
OPEN DAYS May 21 to 31st

AGRIPAK Monofilament Line for Structural Fiber TEST-RUNS
Come to see AGRIPAK Monofilament Extrusion line for the production of structural polymer fiber for reinforced concrete, designed to improve the durability and mechanical properties of concrete.
Such type of innovative fiber reduces, and in some cases even totally eliminate, cracking caused by shrinkage, increasing resistance to flexion, ductility and resistance to wear in concrete, likewise allowing a very high workability of the shotcrete-jets in action.
So multiple and various the final applications of this structural fiber : flooring, paving, coverage, prefabrication, etc.
The extrusion line that will be displayed is suitable to run up to 300 kg/h of PP and 400 kg/h of PET (with proper accessories) and the fiber diameter 0.5 mm (the diameter and shape of the fiber can be modified by installing a dedicated spinneret).
The line is fed by a 90 mm single screw extruder and the stretching godets are composed by 7 rolls having diameter 190 mm and width 400 mm.
At the end of the line is installed a specially engineered crimping system to improve the grip of the fiber.

This new machine permits to seal the 4 sides and the 4 corners of the sheets already die cut after the extrusion process… video.
By our specifically designed plastic filaments combined with Graphene you can easily 3D print also “electrically conductive components”.
A great choice so to 3D print components that include electronics, with no need to add any circuitry after printing , cause you can print graphene wiring during your own creation 3D printing build-process.
Thanks to its main tech-properties of “high strength” and “superior conductivity”, the graphene filament extrudable by our new line has a wide range of applications :
in the everyday interface devices (i.e. : leds, touch sensors, low-voltage circuitry, sensing for proximity, position, acceleration, humidity or fluid levels measurement, etc.)
in the electronics (i.e. : digital interfaces, game and music controllers, wearable electronics, etc)
in the electromagnetic and radiofrequency shielding (i.e. : hospital equipment, telecommunications, etc.)
in high-strength mechanical/functional tooling (i.e. hooks, drilling tool, etc.).
Agripak, nata a fine degli anni Novanta come società di engineering, si è affermata come una tra le aziende leader nella progettazione, produzione e installazione di macchinari di estrusione e termoformatura per la lavorazione della plastica. Negli ultimi quattro anni si è dedicata in modo particolare alle enormi potenzialità offerte dall’ Industry 4.0, sviluppando un sistema di interfaccia PLC / Cloud chiamato BI-Box (Business Intelligence Box). Si tratta di un dispositivo customizzato da Agripak e “cucito su misura” sulle necessità delle aziende clienti.
In questo processo – spiega Massimo Terragni, Technical Director di Agripak – “Telmotor si è distinto come fornitore all’avanguardia, attento alle nostre necessità e richieste, e ci ha permesso di distinguerci, di conseguenza, con i nostri clienti per la professionalità e la rapidità della risposta alle loro esigenze. Per questo motivo, in uno scenario in continua evoluzione come quello dell’Industry 4.0, Agripak ha deciso di avere Telmotor al proprio fianco”.
Born as an engineering company in the late nineties, AGRIPAK has successfully established itself as one of the leader-companies in the design, manufacture and installation of extrusion- and thermoforming-machinery for plastics processing. Over the past four years AGRIPAK has been especially focused on the enormous and well-known potential offered by Industry 4.0: the proud result, an innovative interface-system PLC/Cloud called BI-Box (Business Intelligence Box) now integrated in an AGRIPAK customized device, that can be easily “tailor-made” to any specific client’s companies exigency.
In this development process – says Eng. Massimo Terragni / AGRIPAK Technical Director – “Telmotor has distinguished itself as a pioneer provider, attentive to our needs and requests : therefore giving us the opportunity to differentiate ourselves for the professionalism and rapid response to our customers demands. For this reason, in a continuous evolving scenario like that of Industry 4.0, AGRIPAK has chosen Telmotor.”.
EXTRUSION: Refining processes through ongoing development of technologies
In recent months we have been refining innovative technologies to be applied to our extrusion lines range. A special focus was given to the homogeneous foaming of both compact and hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheet, with the main goal of improving more and more the intrinsic combination of “performance+appearance” of the end-product itself.
Resulting in greater cost-savings in terms of raw material.
It was proved that density reduction in compact-sheet brings to faster cycled time in thermoforming, with many production advantages. Overall when talking about last generation high-speed thermoforming machines as the new form-cut-stack GN800 series (recently born from a successful co-engineered project by AGRIPAK and GN Thermoforming, and first worldwide presented at the last K2016 Show held on Oct’16 in Dusseldorf/Germany).
As for the hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheet, the foaming actually allows to obtain a visible smoother-surface and a higher thermo-insulation. This last property can be further enhanced by a subsequent side-sealing of the hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheet itself : as proved by the tests done on some hollow side-sealed sheets, sealed by our AGRIPAK dedicated downstream machinery.
On this purpose, our downstream machinery range extended, and we are now presenting on market another special dedicated machine for linear & corner-sealing: so to side-seal hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheets and bubble-guard sheets up to 10mm thickness. Perfect for box-pallet-sleeves with sealed-perimeter manufacturing, with the advantage of several time re-use and no-risk of inner-hollow-section contamination.
Our team of experts, with multi-decade worldwide experience in the plastics, is available for a major focus on any plastics market production request. On demand : customized turn-key project-analysis and targeted machinery offers can be provided. So starting from the resin up-to any smarter plastics end-product wished : containers, sheets, box-pallets, logistic-boxes, fruit/vegetable boxes, fish/meat boxes, re-usable boxes, etc.
Many the smart and innovative technologies that AGRIPAK will showcase at this coming CHINAPLAS2017 Show, Guangzhou, CHINA (May 16-19th).
