An innovative, adaptable packaging machine featuring an IO-Link solution

Rotzinger, a leading manufacturer of packaging and cosmetics machines, and CoreTigo, a provider of wireless industrial automation solutions, have announced a partnership. The integration of CoreTigo's IO-Link Wireless products and technology with Rotzinger's state-of-the-art packaging machines results in new, cutting-edge features that enhance versatility, productivity and durability.

The Swiss Rotzinger Group's mission is to constantly optimize its customers' production flow by offering cutting-edge solutions, services and software for a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food. At the request of a major food manufacturer, Rotzinger developed an adaptable secondary packaging machine. The machine had to meet stringent throughput criteria, and be able to handle a wide range of packaging and product variants. The machine is based on an intelligent multi-carrier conveyor, responsible for carrying out various operations on the products, while constantly operating at high speed. For such a complex task, cables were not an option, nor were conventional wireless solutions. By using CoreTigo's IO-Link Wireless products, specially designed for wireless control and monitoring in industrial automation, Rotzinger can now wirelessly control the grippers on the carts without the need for external robots, cables or other equipment.

The machine's innovative design has reduced changeover time and footprint, and maximized capacity and versatility to handle multiple product and packaging types. The result is greater durability, with the machine requiring less energy, space and parts. The number of machines is also reduced, as a single machine can handle different products and packaging models. 

"We're delighted to partner with CoreTigo and integrate their products and IO-Link Wireless technology into our packaging machines, says Andreas Graf, CEO of Rotzinger PharmaPack. This partnership will enable us to offer our customers even more advanced features and additional benefits, including adaptability, as well as increased productivity and durability."

"Rotzinger is a reference in the packaging sector, and we're proud that our IO-Link Wireless technology will be integrated into its innovative machines, says CoreTigo CEO Eran Zigman. The collaboration between CoreTigo and Rotzinger is an excellent example of how technology can be harnessed to meet the changing needs of the industry."

Partnerships and advances such as those demonstrated by Rotzinger and CoreTigo help create a fully connected ecosystem, enabling real-time control and monitoring at every stage of the manufacturing process. Machines and production lines benefit from enhanced versatility and optimized design, boosting operational efficiency and productivity. Such an IO-Link Wireless packaging machine pushes back the boundaries of current machine-to-machine communication, and opens the door to previously unimaginable solutions and concepts.
