PE: Case packer with integrated closer and closer with intelligent positioning
September 14, 2012
Two new technologies from Delkor (www.delkorsystems.com) will be featured at PACK EXPO 2012. The new Delkor LIF-650 Case Packer with Integrated Closer has the flexibility to load multiple case pack patterns in a single, compact and efficient packaging line. It has a robust stainless steel construction and is designed to consistently achieve perfect placement of primary packages into a broad range of secondary packaging types. This machinery readily packs single or multiple flavors into a variety of retail ready distribution style packages. The LIF-650 has an auto-clear infeed system that ensures continuous machine running even when defective products are present. It features a dual axis high speed servo-laner which prevents product pile up and a unique stabilizing device that prevents products from tipping over and causing incomplete loads. It does simple, intuitive and fast tool-less change-over to ensure immediate production ramp up during product changeovers. Once products are loaded into their cases, they move to the integrated closer, which can close up to 60 packages per minute. The integrated Flange Style closer offers an optimal balance of speed, economy and flexibility in one compact footprint.
The Delkor Capstone® S₂-1500 Carton Closer is servo driven and equipped with recently patented Intelligent Positioning™ technology. Intelligent Positioning electronically analyzes the precise position of each individual carton flap as it enters the carton closer and if out of alignment, it can make precise adjustments at speeds of up to 150 cartons per minute. This new Carton Closer has a robust, stainless steel design and is equipped with quality, lifetime components, such as Rockwell Automation Allen Bradley controls architecture, and Allen Bradley color touchscreen HMI operator panel with optional multi-lingual screen prompts. This new Carton Closer is 12 feet long by 10 feet wide by 7 feet tall and can accomplish precise, repeatable and tool-less changeovers in less than 5 minutes. The Delkor Capstone S₂-1500 Carton Closer can run the full range of paperboard and corrugated materials – making it a perfect fit for many retail ready and distribution packaging formats.
At Pack Expo 2012 the LIF-650 will be loading and closing Greek yogurt. See it the Delkor Capstone S₂-1500 Carton Closer in action at PACK EXPO booth # S-2347.
