In the world of packaging, collaboration, and seamless integration are key to achieving success. ProMach recently demonstrated the power of teamwork at Adjuvants Unlimited, a leader in developing and producing advanced tank mix adjuvants and inert ingredient systems for post-patent pesticides in the agrochemical industry. A new case study from ProMach product brands focuses on Adjuvants Unlimited, a prominent company in the agrochemical industry, and how ProMach’s brands joined forces to deliver a comprehensive packaging line solution. By leveraging the expertise of multiple ProMach brands, Adjuvants Unlimited saw significant improvements in production efficiency and quality control.
Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Adjuvants Unlimited mission is to simplify the lives of hardworking individuals who contribute to feeding and fueling the world through the power of chemistry. When the need arose for a top-load case packer to handle their 2.5- and 1-gallon canisters, Adjuvants Unlimited turned to Brenton, a ProMach product brand and leader in designing and manufacturing integrated end of line systems, such as case packing and palletizing, for a solution that would meet their expanding requirements.
While Adjuvants Unlimited initially approached Brenton to address their case packing needs, the project progressed. It became clear that a more comprehensive solution was required. To achieve this, Brenton reached out to Zarpac, another ProMach brand known for its expertise in line integration services. With over 30 years of experience in packaging systems integration, Zarpac became the central point of contact for coordinating the various ProMach options, starting from the depalletizing of empty canisters through to filling, labeling, case forming and packing, pallet building, and stretch wrapping. Zarpac also managed additional requirements, such as implementing quality assurance checkpoints throughout the system.
Through the collective effort of multiple ProMach brands, the final packaging line for Adjuvants Unlimited became a fully automated operation comprising 18 machines, 13 of which were sourced from ProMach product brands Federal, Zalkin, Pace, ID Technology, P.E. Labelers, PackLab, Wexxar Bel, EPI Labelers, Brenton, and Orion. The line seamlessly integrated each component, ensuring a smooth and efficient packaging process.
The line begins with Brenton’s RD1000, which depalletizes and positions empty canisters onto a conveyor. The XACT-Fil Net Weight Filler from Federal then fills the canisters, adhering to strict quality standards and achieving exceptional fill accuracy. Next, ID Technology, P.E. Labelers, and PackLab systems imprint data and apply labels to the canisters. Cases are formed by Wexxar Bel’s WF-20 case erector before being synchronized with Brenton’s L1000 top load case packer.
Implementing ProMach machines into the packaging line resulted in remarkable improvements for Adjuvants Unlimited. Production increased by 100% compared to the previous setup, packaging quality increased and complaints reduced to near zero.
