Oystar Jones: Oystar Jones: Integrated packaging system
A new integrated packaging system from IWKA PacSystems (Fairfield, NJ) for cosmetic and personal-care applications combines multiple product components in a single SKU by combining tube filling and cartoning in a small footprint.
The IWK TFS 10 tube filler forms a link to a minicompact vertical cartoning machine via an integral automated transfer system from R.A. Jones (Cincinnati OH). Tubes containing 3 to 250g exit the filler onto a conveyor and drop into an open carton. The bottom is then closed and finished with a tuck glue or 5-panel carton seal. Both machines provide quick changeovers virtually without tools.
