Icon Systems and Papafili Mills S.A. Unite for Flour Industry Advancement
Icon Systems, a proud member of Acmon Group specializing in intelligent robotic solutions for secondary packaging handling, crate manufacturing, and palletizing, is delighted to announce its latest collaboration with Papafili Mills S.A., a leader in the Greek flour industry. This partnership marks a significant expansion of Icon Systems’ influence within the Greek Flour Industry, showcasing its commitment to delivering tailored solutions that cater to the unique requirements of each product and project.
“We are thrilled to strengthen our presence in the Greek Flour Industry through this exceptional project with Papafili Mills S.A., expressed Panagiotis Houlis, Commercial Director at Icon Systems. “At Icon Systems, we firmly believe that a one-size-fits-all approach is insufficient. Drawing on our expertise, we conducted a thorough evaluation of Papafili Mills’ existing line and strategically decided to replace the vacuum bag gripper with a mechanical alternative. The results speak for themselves – significantly improved speed, precision, and pallet shape.”
In addition to this transformative change, Icon Systems took on the responsibility of replacing and reprogramming the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) of the palletizing line. This comprehensive system includes various components such as a belt conveyor for flour bag transportation, a KUKA robotic arm, roller conveyors for bags and pallets, an empty pallet dispenser, a vertical lift chain conveyor system for seamless pallet transfer, and a bag flattener.
Papafili Mills firmly believes that excellence in a given field is just the beginning, not the end. They continuously strive to be pioneers and innovators in the industry, adapting their philosophy to meet modern challenges and requirements.
