Rockfon - ROCKWOOL packaging line



opdrachtgever:Rockfon - ROCKWOOL
business unit:Industriële automatisering
markt:suspended ceilings
doelgroep:production facilities

Rockfon from Wijnegem is part of the building materials giant ROCKWOOL Group. They produce (components for) fire-safe and acoustic suspended ceilings. The aluminium T-profiles were initially packed manually into cardboard boxes. A labour-intensive job. ACE took care of the complete automation of this packaging process.

This project included the turnkey development of the Rockfon packaging line. This involved:

  • concept determination in dialogue
  • mechanical and electrical design
  • PLC programming
  • project support
  • construction of the machine
  • testing

In addition to productivity, safety, ergonomics and workability were also given an enormous boost.
