The DYNAC is a simple yet innovative solution that brings a dramatic improvement to packaging line performance.
The core benefits of a DYNAC include pressure free FIFO accumulation, maximum storage in a reduced footprint, ability to absorb micro-stops on a line, precise product metering to downstream machines and the ability to optimize overall line efficiency.
When ITW Hartness integrates DYNAC, our proprietary line control simplifies line logic, measures inventory levels to signal the balance of upstream / downstream conditions creating the heartbeat of the line.
Experience advanced technology that is simple to use. The Model 2800 has been the global industry standard for high-speed, top-load case packing. The servo motors’ precision control enables quick and repeatable changeovers, fast motion, gentle product handling and increased flexibility. And with its simple operator interface, intuitive grid chart and tool-less changeover, something so advanced has never been so simple and easy to use.
When it comes to line efficiencies there are many factors that can potentially rob your throughput. In general, machine performance, inexperienced operators, inconsistent materials, and lack of maintenance time can cost you up to 25% of your available throughput.
The problem for some customers is the aforementioned inefficiencies of machinery cause micro-stops along with bad communication between machine centers.
A recent customer had a full line with 7 different machine centers all running over 90%. We ran a 240-hour simulation to calculate the baseline efficiency for their overall line. In the simulation on the left, the efficiency result is 76.73% without DYNAC Accumulation despite all machine center efficiencies being above 90%.
