Pack Expo Video: High-speed tube filler
NEWS FROM PACK EXPO: At the Sidel booth, Norden-Pac (Branchburg, NJ) was showing its Nordenmatic 2002S/Nordenpac 2002S high-speed tube filling and cartoning line.See video clip of this machine
Occupying a compact footprint the integrated machines are capable of unpacking filling sealing and cartoning tubes at speeds to 200/min or higher depending on tube size and viscosity. Built completely from the ground up around servo technology from Elau (Chicago IL) the tube filler uses an ABB (New Berlin WI) robotic arm to unpack cases of tubes and deliver them to an oval track for filling and sealing.
The use of servo motors to drive all major machine functions permits fast changeover--adjustment for different tube lengths may be carried out in less than 30 seconds says the company.
The Norden "EasyWare" control system is said to combine flexibility and ease of use for the operator and incorporates a new efficient and user-friendly touchscreen panel.
A higher-speed version is available that can accommodate speeds up to 500 tubes/min according to the company.
