Tectubes, a Swedish manufacturer of tubes for the food, pharmaceutical, personal care and chemical industries, needed a conveying solution that would reduce manufacturing downtime and decrease maintenance costs. In order to manufacture more tubes in less time, Tectubes sought to improve the way that its plastic granules were handled.
In order to streamline the manufacturing process, Tectubes replaced the existing mechanical conveying system with a compressed-air driven vacuum conveyor system from Piab.
The vacuum conveyor is based upon COAX® technology, achieving higher performance and consuming 25% less energy than conventional pumps. Since the new system was installed, Tectubes’ energy and maintenance costs have decreased and the company has experienced increased productivity with reliable systems that run without interruption.
