Syntegon to Launch Upgraded Kliklok BEC Endload Cartoner

The upgraded machine features an optimized drive system, a Human Machine Interface (HMI) 4.0 for simpler Digital Service connectivity, a redesigned frame, and new controls.


The cartoner targets mid-sized companies that seek to automate their cartoning processes. “The latest Kliklok BEC offers the benefits of our proven machine series combined with the latest technological advancements to meet the requirements of automated production processes,” Russell Morgan, Technical Sales Director at Kliklok in Bristol, explains. “We put special emphasis on process stability, easy line integration, and maximum connectivity with Syntegon’s Digital Service Solutions.

As well as its upgraded drive technology, the BEC’s frame has been redesigned, reducing its footprint while still offering an accessable, operator friendly layout. Beckhoff controls in discrete CPU boxes allow for simple cabling without electrical cabinets, leading to a compact overall layout. The BEC’s reduced footprint particularly lends itself to operating the cartoner on limited floor space. In combination with its hygienic stainless steel execution (IP54), the BEC endload cartoner offers a robust, hygienic and highly reliable cartoning solution.

From the food to personal care and the electronics industries, mid-sized businesses rely on factory automation to secure growth. This requires reasonably priced and robust technologies that optimally support their production targets. The new BEC endload cartoner provides valuable support in those regards: as an entry-level machine, its recent upgrade includes servo motors instead of mechanical drive technology – a key requirement for stable processes. “Switching to servo technology allows us to ideally synchronize different drive components, securing repeatable product placement. The more precisely products are placed into the cartons, the less rejects and downtimes customers will face,” Morgan adds.

As an organization continues to grow, the requirements for comprehensive reporting will increase, requiring additional connectivity and access to digital services. With its state-of-the-art HMI 4.0, the BEC supports optimal line integration while providing easy access to Syntegon’s Digital Service Solutions. A full range of connectivity options and controls enables customers to easily connect the machine not only to a company’s higher level system, but to integrate it with existing upstream and downstream equipment. The HMI 4.0 also offers secure connectivity with Syntegon’s own Digital Service portfolio. “Our service solutions support customers in their quest to achieve ever higher levels of OEE by giving them greater visibility of their processes,” Morgan says. “With the HMI 4.0, customers now benefit not only from enhanced connectivity, but the ability to access information on performance down to a component level.”

Just like for all Syntegon equipment, Syntegon’s redesigned Service Agreements will be available for the new BEC endload cartoner. One essential aspect of the Service Agreements is Synexio, a new cloud-based software solution for the acquisition, evaluation, and visualization of equipment and production data. Syntegon will release three consecutive packages of Synexio, with the entry-level package “Monitor” available for the BEC in 2023. This package visualizes various KPIs to help companies achieve transparency over their production.
