Control by photocells for correct product position and for minimum product accumulation in each lane, control for the fallen product. Alternate separation system composed by a mesh belt driven by a clutch and brake group to allow automatic the size change through the operator panel.
Upper pressing unit to stabilize products during separation.
After the collation of the products into the required configuration, the block of the products is transferred to couple with the tray or the pad. The group is complete with plastic lateral guide rails in order to obtain a perfect products compacting. The group is equipped with torque limiter that safeguards the bars group from eventual accidental stops.
The blank is picked up from the magazine by a device with suction cups and vacuum.
The magazine is adjustable and has an high capacity. The magazine is fully accessible for easier and faster loading. The patented pick-and-place system ensures maximum precision and reliability.
The case is formed «in-line».
After the product has been coupled with the blank, the internal flaps are folded and the hot melt glue is applied; then the top of the case is folded and finally the external flaps are folded.
The tray is erected in continuous by wrap-around system.
The first flap is folded with the arrival of the front teeth of the chain; during the way, the blank is coupled with the product. The back flap is folded by the rear teeth of the chain.
Then there is the folding of the front lateral flaps with fixed contrasts while the back ones are folded by folders driven by a mechanical contrast. At this point the glue is applied on the side flaps which, while advancing in continuous motion, are folded by a pneumatic cam. Finally, the lateral flaps are lift to couple with the already glued flaps to complete the tray.
The film reel are placed on two pneumatic expanding shafts. The system is complete with manual sealer for film splicing. Film is kept constantly in tension thanks to a pneumatic compensation group.
The film reel are disk braking, with direct action on the expanding shafts in order to allow the correct film tension at the beginning or at the end of the roll.
The group is equipped with antistatic bars to eliminate electrostatic charges.
Cutting group with rotating shaft driven by a friction brake group. Film unwinding and thrusting driven by servomotors. The group is equipped with pneumatic input for rollers opening, in order to allow an easier film insertion. The upper belt has a tilt opening which allows the full inspection of the cutting group, the blade replacement or the complete cleaning of the group.
Film transport bars are fixed on a rotary support only on one side to allow a full accessibility to the wrapping group. Simple manual adjustments with digital counters allow to wrap a wide range of packs without any parts replacement. Also this group is equipped with torque limiter to safeguard from eventual accidental stops.
Products go on a mesh belt driven by rubber rollers.
The belt tensioning is kept constant by a damper weight placed on the last part of the tunnel.
The tunnel is equipped with external adjustment to optimise the air flows according to the pack configuration. Manual device to empty the tunnel when no voltage is supplied.
Cooling fan placed at the end of the tunnel to force the beginning of the shrink.
Lateral panels can be dismantled for resistances replacement.
