Application Example: Colpitt

Production of disposable plastic bags

From a one-off to a modular system. For lower construction costs and shorter development times.

Challenge

Colpitt is a leading developer and manufacturer of specialised medical equipment. The aim of changing the manufacturing process from the production of unique items to a flexible and future-proof modular system was to reduce costs and throughput times.

Solution

The NR rotary indexing ring forms the base unit of the modular system. User programmability and the WEISS Application Software are features ensuring high flexibility and easy commissioning. The fact that the bearing and locking mechanisms are on the outside enables the fast and accurate turning of up to seven-metre-large rings with workpiece holders. The large central opening allows for processing stations in a stable and lightweight arch structure.
