Higher Productivity Through the Power of Innovation
Boldly at the forefront of packaging trends and market demands, the Contour® series continues to raise the standards for shrink wrap performance. With intelligent, adaptable solutions offering advanced heat tunnel technology, superior efficiency and ultimate reliability, our shrink wrap systems meet all facets of today’s accelerated production challenges while ensuring your brand is consistently presented with industry-leading package appearance and durability.
Contour SPS-30/50 Features
- Film-only, pad, u-board and tray solutions
- Simple and repeatable changeovers
- Low magazine ensures easy blank loading
- Side mounted film stand assures proper ergonomics and adds convenience for film loading and splicing
- Flexible servo driven wrapping wand provides exceptional film control and accurate film placement
- Revolutionary patented heat tunnel uses advanced heat and airflow management, delivering tightly wrapped packages for maximum package integrity and appearance
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
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.
The Contour Gas-powered Heat Tunnel – reduces energy costs and improves production efficiency with a shorter heat-up time by using gas instead of electricity to heat the shrink wrap tunnel. Tunnels heat from 75 degrees F to 360 degrees F in just 15 minutes cutting the heat-up time by almost 30 percent. Depending on local energy costs and the type of machine used with the gas tunnel, it is estimated that companies could cut energy costs up to 75 percent.
