The Sime-Tek operating system stems directly from the experience gained in the textile industry, until 1995 before entering the world of eggs.
As in the textile industry, even in the poultry sector, production systems must guarantee continuous, uninterrupted production to maximize investments and reduce labor costs. And it is according to this working concept that Sime-Tek machines over the years have proven unique on the market in terms of production ef ciency and ease of use.
Thanks to simpli ed components and an extremely intuitive working process, the Sime-Tek machines are also suitable for those who face the world of poultry production for the
ACCUMULATOR – INFEEDER – ROLLER CONVEYOR – AUTOMATIC LOADER – AUTOMATIC DEVIATION ARM
An infeed belt connected directly to the conveyor coming from the shed/s or attached to an automatic or manual loader, brings the eggs to the accumulator, where thanks to special rotating “stars” (made of composite material) the eggs are introduced in the roller conveyor according to the number of weighing lines of the plant (2, 4, 6 or 8 rows).
This simple mechanism keeps the eggs in constant movement, ensuring a constant ow to the roller conveyor of the system and thus increasing its ef ciency.
AUTOMATIC CANDLING – SEMIAUTOMATIC – AUTOMATIC – CRACK DETECTOR – UV DISINFECTION
Sime-Tek machines are always equipped with a manual candling system with neon lamps and mirror, with forward-backward movement of the rollers to facilitate the candling (also available on farmpackers upon request).
The excellent visibility for the operator is guaranteed by the light of the solar-colored lamps, and the rollers are easily accessible for a quick collection of defective eggs.
Sime-Tek machines can also be equipped with the most advanced egg control systems.
The system automatically recognizes the dirty eggs, and decide whether to discard or direct them to
a speci c outlet, and the broken eggs, which are immediately removed from the plant to avoid cross contamination on the rest of the system.
Automatic detection system for micro and macro breakage, with the possibility to de ne in a personalized way the degree of breakage to be discarded.
Recognizes the micro breakages of the egg, invisible to the naked eye, and broken eggs without perforation.
For the disinfection and sterilization of eggs and rollers, Sime-Tek systems can be equipped with a special chamber where the eggs pass under ultraviolet lamps speci cally made for the removal of the bacterial charges present on the eggs and on the rollers of the machine.
ELECTRONIC WEIGHING – TOUCH SREEN – CATEGORY INDICATOR- EXIT DEFECTIVE EGGS – EXIT BROKEN EGGS
Sime-Tek’s electronic grading system guarantees maximum precision in the weighing of the eggs.
This is due to the fact that the weighing is carried out from stationary scales rather than moving as in most of the systems on the market.
The weighing is always carried out by difference between gross and tare weight, so as to guarantee constant accuracy even in the presence of deposits of dust or egg residues, which happens in certain production cycles.
Thanks to this system it is possible to predetermine and modify at any time the exit direction of each egg.
The touch-screen panel, manages the entire working cycle of the plant, and provides daily statistics and data reports.
The software installed, versatile and interfaceable with any printer, is easy to use and allow real-time control of all system functions.
The system, in addition to managing weight settings and providing statistics and information such as egg/packages count, is equipped with online connectivity and a special webcam, for remote assistance in case challenges occur.
The operator can be equipped with a software interfaced to the machine which he can use to control and manage the system remotely at any time.
DISTRIBUTION – PACKING UNIT ENTRANCE – OUTPUT MANUAL – MOTORIZED OUTPUT – TRANSFER PLAN
Once the eggs arrive at the designated packing lines, they are released into an area called reservoir. The release is slowed down, and the eggs are accompanied in the reservoir passing through soft rotating brushes in continuous motion (Sirio only)
In the entrance of the packers, the quick and safe transport of the eggs is guaranteed by the movement of the reservoir (in large steel mesh), which, together with the soft “rotating stars”, keeps the eggs in constant movement and manages the continuous ow to the packer.
The reservoir system guarantees maximum production ef ciency, and eliminates the need for by-pass lines, since the machine can work continuously even when a packer is stopped to change the packages or make adjustments.
DENESTER – PACKER EXIT – PACKER – SIME-TEK HANDS – PRINT UNIT
The packers represent the unique and recognizable style of Sime-Tek. The original system of protection and support of the eggs
in the packaging is optimized in the movement thanks to the use of pre-stressed steel, which makes the packing more precise and delicate in the treatment of the product and the deposit in the packages.
The packing system is also equipped with special “Sime-Tek hands”, which accompany the eggs in the packages and deposit them at the lowest height possible.
Sime-Tek denesters are universal and can be quickly adapted to any type of packages (plateaux, plastic packaging or wood pulp).
The particular system for the regulation of the denester allows for a quick and easy change between the different size and type of packages.
The change in the denester is carried out by stopping only the packing line involved, while the rest of the machine continues working.
CLOSING DEVICE – AUTOMATIC STACKER – SEALERS – INK JET SHIFTER – MINI ROBOT
After the packing phase, the line can be equipped with closing systems for pulp, plastic and polystyrene packages.
The closing lines can also be equipped with mini-stackers; in-line stackers which stacks up a pile of 6 trays, and guarantees an even greater degree of autonomy of the line, thus allowing a saving of labor costs.
In Sime-Tek’s exit lines, the coexistence of the closure and stacking systems is always possible, to guarantee maximum exibility for the customer.
The exit lines can also be equipped with traversing units for handling ink-jet printer heads and in-line sealers for packaging the boxes with cartons which are already die-cut, glued and ready for immediate use. This in-line system keeps the footprint of the machine to a minimum and can always be applied to existing lines.
Sime-Tek is also able to provide an automation system at the end of the line, with small collaborative robots and conveyor belts for boxes, so that even the small and medium-sized producers can automate the production and reduce labor costs.
