Marden Edwards' new servo end-fold wrapper
75 cpm wrapper offers enhanced graphics, gentle film handling, from Marden Edwards at Interpack 2005
Marden Edwards’ new 75 cpm servo-driven end-fold wrapper
Marden Edwards (Interpack 2005 Hall 05 Stand C02-9 and Hall 16 Stand E03) has introduced its new TS75 servo-driven end-fold wrapper which provides a trailing edge seal allowing uninterrupted graphic treatments of both major sides of a carton. Designed from the ground up to take full advantage of ELAU’s PacDrive servo technology the new wrapper operates at speeds up to 75 cartons per minute.
Compared to traditional end-fold overwrappers there is no elevating table to transport the carton into the film prior to folding. Instead required film length is measured digitally cut and presented as a curtain through which the carton travels on a servo-driven infeed to be sealed. Servo-driven film presentation is adjustable to carton size and sealing takes place adjacent to the carton edge.
The truly mechatronic machine features a balcony design for ease of cleaning and ease of access. The combination of hygienic design and enhanced graphic treatment is ideally suited for cosmetics personal care and related products.
Marden Edwards has nearly 40 years experience in the design and manufacture of overwrapping and banding systems. An international leader Marden Edwards has over 7 overwrapping systems in operation in over 150 countries. The company has a global network of over 50 trade partners to supply install and service its equipment.
ELAU equips over $1 billion worth of the world’s best machines annually with over 20 PacDrive systems already deployed in packaging machinery worldwide. PacDrive is the first truly integrated automation architecture capable of performing the functions of PLC motion control robotics temperature control PLS MES data interface and more in a single standards-based software environment.
