Standard-Knapp has introduced the continuous-motion Slitter/Sealer for high-speed in-line case handling in the food and beverage industries.
Designed to handle a range of tab-lock case types, the machine is engineered for maximum uptime and efficiency and reaches speeds exceeding 100 cases/min. The system’s pitch adjustment employs servo motors and variable-drive controls to ensure precise timing and eliminate operator error, while the innovative infeed design provides positive product timing. In-line machine design also eliminates the need to turn the case when slitting the tab-locks on incoming cases. One operator can complete changeover in fewer than 15 min without tools, and the width of the entire machine is adjustable with a single hand crank.
