Electronic motion controls ensure repeatable changeovers. The Axiom® DL uses very little floor space, and walk-in frame construction maximizes accessibility, so personnel can quickly and efficiently perform changeovers and preventive maintenance. Features may include the patented Smartrak® Steady Stream Infeed to eliminate product bridging and remove the gaps, and Slipstream™ pinless metering for stable product metering without the use of traditional metering pins. The Axiom’s large size range and intuitive HMI simplifies the addition of future product
sizes. An electronic handwheel provides easy hand cycling when needing to view the entire machine function in slow motion. Optional tool-free changeovers are completed in minutes with minimal change parts.
