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-30/60 Features
- Film-only, pad, u-board and tray solutions
- Single stream and multi-stream capabilities
- 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
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.
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
Variable Path dynamic registration and pinless metering
Innovations to our patented Slipstream pinless metering system incorporate variable path registration bar technology and slip sheet technology to gently group and meter products into the machine. The dynamic variable path motion registers products with less pressure and interruption to product flow.
Mid-Speed pinless metering
For slower speed applications, mid-speed pinless metering provides accurate product registration and slip sheet grouping of pack patterns for tray packing.
Run bottled, cartoned, canned and other products without the use of tampers or escapement pins. Tool free changeovers and preprogrammed settings increase productivity. The appropriate technology is determined based on speeds and your product.
The ergonomically designed automatic film splicer delivers precise print registration and heat splicing, reducing critical machine downtime. The easy-access side film stand enables operators to stage clear or printed film, at their convenience, while the machine is running. Staging during operation maximizes production time and minimizes the occurrence of empty film faults. Once the film is staged, no operator attention is needed for splicing. Splicing occurs automatically; providing operators considerable flexibility with work load.
This option is a great addition to a new Contour Shrink Wrap System. Its simplicity and convenience provides an efficient work environment for the operator.
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.
