Axon (axoncorp.com), powered by Pro Mach (promachinc.com), will have an integrated system for tamper evident band applications on display at Texas Pack 2014, May 7-8 in Fort Worth, TX. The integrated system includes an EZ-100 applicator coupled with a Thermoray heat tunnel.
The EZ-100 comes complete with an electro-pneumatic film control system that enables quick and easy changeover to different container sizes and shapes without expensive tooling changes – an ideal solution for companies with multiple SKUs. The unique guillotine knife system cuts film lengths precisely for a high-quality band appearance. The EZ-100 comes standard with an Allen-Bradley PLC and an intuitive operator interface for easy operation.
The Thermoray shrink tunnel utilizes infrared heating elements with an integrated fan to ensure even heat distribution and uniform shrinkage on a very compact footprint. Robust construction and very simple controls will provide years of trouble-free operation.
Overall, the EZ-100 and Thermoray combination is a solid tamper evident solution within a compact, 9-foot footprint. Both machines have cantilevered frames so they can be easily integrated into existing packaging lines. Proven design, few moving parts, and stainless steel construction ensure these machines will be running for years to come even in the most challenging environments.
