Douglas Machine Inc: Pinless metering system
Douglas Machine has expanded technology for its Slipstream™ pinless metering system so it can handle cans, bottles, and cartons on one machine.
By simply changing a snap-on slipsheet, the machine becomes much more flexible. Size range extends from small pet food cans to large 2-liter bottles, and speeds can range from 30 to 105 packages/minute. Slipstream also handles widths of product up to 8 wide 32 packs of soft drink cans. Slipstream is also useful for shrink-wrapping multiple streams for film-only bundles. Slipstream pinless metering is used on Douglas Contour™ Shrink-Wrap systems and Axiom® Case/Tray .
