TRS-2 system removes leftover trim, virtually eliminates bad boxes and line stoppages.

The trim removal system effectively removes corrugated trim to ensure proper gluing, and virtually eliminates production stops or post-production searches for “bad boxes” due to trim caught in the glue station. Designed for mid- to high-volume operations, the system’s high-performance, long-life DC motor produces up to 18,000 hits/minute with safe, flexible straps. The TRS-2 adjusts to accommodate various sizes of corrugated sheet, and safely removes extra material with the replaceable, wear-resistant straps. A unique hub design allows strap adjustment and/or replacement easily and inexpensively with no tools required. The torque-limited DC motor optimizes worker safety, and provides quieter operation than air power.

“Typically, the trim often gets hung up in the gluing station preventing proper application of the glue and resulting in a bad box,” said Jerry Henline, President, HAECO. “Early users with between 100 and 200 bad boxes a day reduced it to zero with the TRS-2, and the ROI was less than six months.”

The TRS-1 is easy to install, operate and maintain. The system includes a linear-bearing mounting bracket with Lexan shield assembly.
