Maximum Speed Without Compromise
With speeds up to 45 cases per minute and servo controlled precision, the Axiom IM case/tray packer combines the ultimate in dependable high speed operation with gentle product handling and unparalleled flexibility. The open frame modular design platform, innovative infeed technologies and simple, menu-driven changeovers allow effortless adaptation to evolving and uncertain product life cycles. Smart, simple and ready for anything, the Axiom IM series offers industry leading performance in a compact, low maintenance package.
- Speeds to 45 cases/trays per minute.
- Simple and repeatable changeovers.
- A variety of infeeds and metering techniques for efficient product handling.
- Sanitary stainless steel frame construction for increased corrosion resistance.
- Small footprint saves valuable floor space.
- Optional Velocity™ High Speed Stacker provides continuous product flow up to 600 products per minute while maintaining remarkable stability.
A variety of advanced infeed solutions are offered to optimize performance for specific product types while maintaining gentle product handling to ensure highest package integrity. Some commonly used systems include:
Servo Lane Mergers and Dividers – Perfect for applications where any shape or sized product cannot be flood or mass fed. A fixed number of products are smoothly fed to metering systems, where balanced product lanes are required.
Recirculating Conveyor – A complete recirculating loop system that controls product population, reduces line pressure as products are distributed into lanes.
Velocity II High Speed Stacker – Gently forms stacked-product patterns without interruption, providing continuous product flow at speeds to 600 products/min. Patented techniques include an increased flexibility for running different product heights while still providing tool-free changeovers with an intuitive control panel.
Raise on Return Loading – This high-speed loading technique starts to accumulate product for the next pack pattern as soon as the loader clears the accumulation section.
Flap Traps and Tuckers – Another contributor to increased efficiency and speed is the ability to consistently control and fold case flaps. Flap traps and minor flap tuckers are servo driven to control their speed and timing. Servo driven flap traps operate consistently at all speeds to capture the case during setup, one of the most critical areas impacting efficiency. Precise control of tucker speed and timing is the best method for folding at the flap score line.
Case Squaring – Four corner case control squares the leading and trailing walls of the case just prior to case sealing and compression. Again, servo control of the squaring guarantees precise operation. One touch jam clearing is accomplished through the HMI by automated manipulationof compression components to quickly and efficiently clear the affected area.
