Streamlined Performance with Straight Through
Using an overhead sweeping motion to directly load product onto the case or tray blank minimizes unnecessary components to increase production efficiency. Servo functions reliably and accurately pack cartons, bottles, cans, jars, and jugs using innovative infeed technology and high speed case loading methods with precise product control.
- Inline direct loading into case or tray
- Precise flap gluing, folding and compression – no flight chain camming
- Gentle product handling – servo driven
- Speeds to 55 cases/tray per min
- Large size range
- Simple and repeatable changeovers
- Walk-in frame design
- Continuous motion glue compression
The Axiom DL offers inline product flow and delivery into the case or tray. Its compact footprint is able to reach speeds to 55 cases or trays per minute.
Flap folding and compression, from the sides of the machine, results in more accurate glue application and more consistent glue compression than systems with cammed chain flights.
Recirculating Conveyor – A complete recirculating loop system that controls product population, reduces line pressure as products are distributed into lanes.
Fast, repeatable changeover feature offers multiple enhancements.
Repeatability – rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to within +/- 1/32″
Flexibility – ability to place lanes where desired as opposed to centerline or fixed side adjustments and more customer options for generating product-specific recipes
Durability – infeed rail’s holding force can withstand high product pressure
Ergonomics – minimizing manual adjustments maximizes efficiency and promotes safety in the work environment
Smartrak II – Mass flow infeed design eliminates soft bottle bridging and removes gaps to ensure pack-pattern accuracy and continuous product flow. Distinguishing features include modulated speed control programming for surge pressure relief at the choke point, single solid adjustment cross-members, tool less clamps and pinned lane guide adjustment positions for stable operation and quick, accurate changeovers. By eliminating many mechanical changeover adjustments and replacing them with a one clamp design, changeovers are seamless and fast.
Slipstream™ HS / Slipstream™ SS – pinless metering using slip sheet methodology and servo technology to gently meter bottled, cartoned, canned and other products in appropriate pack-patterns without the use of tampers or escapement pins. Remarkable stability control allows for faster handling than traditional metering methods. Tool free changeovers and the intuitive HMI control panel also increase productivity. The appropriate technology is determined based on speeds and your product. Slipstream SS offers more stability as product moves faster, especially with unstable product or odd size/shaped packaging
