Semi-automatic line for packaging cookies “on edge” in Slugs

Semi-automatic line for packaging cookies “on edge” in Slugs

SynchroGroup has supplied to an important multinational company a semi-automatic line for loading and packaging biscuits of different shapes (round, square and rectangular) in slugs from 200 to 250 grams.

The supply consists on a double chain conveyor with rods on which cookies are manually loaded, a 90º transfer to introduce them into the Flow-Pack pusher´s conveyor and the Flow-wrapper itself.

The following innovations have been implemented in this project:

  • Synchrofeed has developed a new 90 °transfer with tracking function of the wrapper chain (equipped with 3 servomotors) to obtain a very soft and gentle transfer of the slugs, avoiding sudden movements that may damage or even break fragile or sensitive cookies.
  • Synchropack has introduced a new concept of “universal” side belts to accompany and hold the biscuits on edge position once introduced into the film tube. This solution, allows easy and simple format changes in the slug/bag length without needing to change the side belts.

New SRC Rotary Retort from Levati

The new SRC rotary retort is a totally new concept in sterilization and pasteurization technology. The patented system represents a step change in retort design that reduces processing time, thereby helping to ensure the quality of the sterilized product and significantly improving productivity when compared with ordinary rotary or static retorts.

Automatic corrugated cardboard feeder from reel

Synchrogroup has provided to a major Spanish cookies manufacturer, a Synchropack Horizontal Flowrapper model Pack 900 RT equipped with an automatic corrugated cardboard feeder from reel. It makes 4 u. / 4+4 u. / 5+5+5 u. / 5+5+5+5 units per pack to a production of 100 ppm
The supply consists on a Synchropack Flowrapper Pack 900 RT equipped with an Automatic Cartonboard Feeder (ACF), which produces the desired lenght cards, with 4 longitudinal parallel crease lines.
Depending on the presentation, the marked and cut cardboard could be folded shaped like “U” or “O” as required.
Once the product is placed on the flat cartonboard, several folding guides make the folding, around the product, following the longitudinal crease lines.
The cut-off length can be set-up from the touchscreen and the software can memorize different formats.
The ACF module could be installed online or with side entrance to the wrapper, depending on the required configuration.

Hi-Speed Wet Wipes Wrapper

Synchrogroup has evolved its well-known wrapping model Pack 900 LTS “Window-Pack” specially aimed for packaging wet wipes, increasing its production capacity till the 150 ppm in constant production run. This has been possible thanks to the new design of the transversal sealing group which implements important novelties as regards its previous version.
The main change is the decrease in the weight of the group and a mass re-distribution which provides both the lightness and robustness, needed to move faster, consequently, getting more cycles per minute.
The group is still driven by two independent servomotors, perfectly synchronized using the “Synchro-Motion” computerized axes control that has a specific software for this application.
To ensure the tightness of sealing, Synchrogroup incorporates its well proven and exclusive hydropneumatic force transfer group, providing up to 500 kg / force in the welding jaws.
With this machine, Synchrogroup covers a significant demand of the “Wet-wipes” industry where speed requirements are increasingly important due to the continuous production increase of the “Converting” machines.

New Italian Pack Yang high speed MAP tray sealers from Paxon Packaging

Polaris510Paxon Packaging presents the new Polaris EVO series of MAP tray sealers from Italian Pack Yang.

Polaris high speed tray sealers come in a stainless steel construction as standard.

Polaris EVO 560 and EVO 1000 are high speed MAP tray sealers available in single or twin lane versions with varying outputs.

Polaris EVO 1000 achieves outputs of up to 192 trays per minute on the twin lane and 96 trays per minute on the single lane while Polaris EVO 560 achieves 120ppm on the twin lane and 60ppm on the single lane. These outputs are based on a 95mm diameter tray and low MAP, subject to tray size and residual oxygen required.

The EVO series packaging equipment offers touch screen control with electronic servo drive automation.

New Modified Atmosphere Packaging Tray Sealers from Paxon Packaging

Paxon Packaging introduces a new line of MAP tray sealers manufactured by Italian Pack Yang of Italy.

Modified atmosphere packaging tray sealers from the Polaris Series are hybrid triple chamber tray sealers capable of tripling the output of a single chamber.

The MAP tray sealers also have the unique feature of being able to incorporate three different tools in the same machine to minimise downtime during changeover.

Any one of the three dies can be selected whilst bypassing the other two tools.

Three different tray sizes can be operated by selecting the appropriate tooling die in the chambers without time-consuming tooling changeover.

Alternatively, the tray sealers can be used as triple chamber tray sealers, increasing the output of the same tray size threefold.

The MAP tray sealers can be integrated with automated conveyors as part of a continuous line.

New series of Yang automatic in-line map tray sealers now available from Paxon Packaging

Feb10_2Now available from Paxon Packaging , the recently released series of Italian Pack Yang automatic in-line map tray sealers are new models of the ‘Perseus’ economy range.

These automatic in-line map tray sealers feature upgraded touch screen controls, simple and quick tooling changeover, and provide automatic interfacing to the production line.

The Yang automatic in-line map tray sealer is ideal for applications where requirements are for smaller volumes in an automatic format with minimal labour input.

Horizontal Cartoners C222 available

New horizontal cartoner C222 in cantilevered construction is available from Cariba.

This design allows the complete separation of mechanical working parts from packaging area for carton dust fall prevention in to transmission part of machine and allowing at the same time the complete accessibility for cleaning, ordinary maintenance and change format operations.

The electrical cabinet can be easily moved for accessing to the product conveyance system.

The horizontal cartoner C222 can run a wide range of box formats dimensions. The horizontal cartoner C222 is available from Paxon Packaging.
