Thoughtful, automated processes significantly increase the efficiency of a company. No matter what is produced, partially prepared, transported or loaded – wwt provides both modular solutions and complete systems for automated production or transport processes.
Over 15 years of experience as well as outstanding knowledge of the industry and industrial processes enable us to develop individual automation solutions. We provide special mechanical engineering, always accurately reflecting the requirements of our international customers.
Our extensive experience as well as outstanding knowledge of the industry and industrial processes make us capable to guarantee the development of an optimal automation solution.
Our solutions for conveyors, transport lines, machines and components are applied all over the world. Thanks to them, production processes become more efficient, faster and safer. We know what matters in your industry. Therefore, we want to thoroughly understand the specific requirements of each process in order to deliver the best solution.
wwt is headquartered in Essen but our special machines and individual industry solutions are located all over the world. Assemblies are currently taking place in twelve international locations and, naturally, in Germany.
wwt provides individual solutions for specific sub-processes used in the production of consumer goods and machine parts, for handling of packaging and loading processes, as well as for automated mass catering (e.g. for canteens). Our concepts can also be conveniently integrated into existing infrastructure in the non-food sector. Additionally, they are almost freely scalable. From a single module to a fully automated production line – we will find an adequate and process optimising solution.
Our rim machining concepts cover a wide range of activities: from automatic deburring machines to washing chambers. Finished rims, made by casting, are automatically fed to the deburrer which removes the so-called ‘thorn’. The special feature of our solution is that the system automatically detects the rim diameter. This makes it possible to process rims of different sizes without the need to sort them by type.
New sizes can be uploaded to the product range display area via a calibration run. After deburring, the product returns to the ongoing production process and, after further mechanical treatment, is transported to the washing-drying chamber. The chambers are programmed for simultaneous machining of two rims each. Due to the continuous nature of the system, the cell can be conveniently integrated into different situations in each individual production process.
wwt offers an intelligent system with a three-axis gate control for loading pallets. The gripping arm picks up the packaging delivered on the belt and stacks it on stored pallets according to the confectioning requirements.
Each module has two pallet chambers with an automatic safety gate in a form of a roller shutter. The manual pallet withdrawal is risk-free as the gates disconnect the production inflow during collection for security purposes. Release of the lock occurs only after a pallet exchange, that is, with the roller gate closed. Obviously, our system can be expanded with a block structure, connected to an automated pallet system, thus making the packaging process even more efficient.
Movement matters to us a lot, therefore we make sure your process runs smoothly. wwt is a specialist in the construction of special machines and components for the non-food industry. Our production line for roller tracks covers the entire production process, from manufacturing of individual components to the outfeed section.
Our special machine for the production of roller tracks confections all individual components fully automatically. The quality of the end product is ensured by various test methods, even before preparing the individual parts. With a cycle times of 5 rolls per second, accurate transfer from station to station is extremely important. Our intelligent ServoMotion-Control system synchronises all drives around the rollers’ infeed station to accurately position the track to the required position in the right moment. This way, each track can be freely configured without delays disrupting the production flow. Finished roller tracks are transported to outfeed section, which thanks to the telescopic extension, also allows to store products of non-standard length.
Catering facilities in canteens, hospitals and furniture stores require efficient handling of a large number of dishes, especially during rush hours. wwt offers a tailor-made solution for continuous removal, inter-floor transport and tray and/or dishes disposal.
Our concept for vertical transport is adapted to both the ground level and additional, upper levels. Dishes and trays circulate in an uninterrupted circuit, to which they are joined at upstream point and automatically released at downstream point. Single dishes, which have left the dishwasher, are automatically stacked, ready for hand pick-up by users. The preferred height of the stack of dishes can be determined individually.
