Axon: Shrink sleeve applicators available for harsh environments
Two new models of Aurora in-line mandrel-style shrink film applicators from Axon, a division of Pro Mach, are available with stainless steel frame options in 304 grade for wet-filling rooms and 316 grade for increased corrosion resistance.
Developed for beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, dairy, chemical, and other manufacturers, the two Aurora models, Prime and Premium, offer applicator speeds up to 150 to 300 sleeves/min., respectively.
All Aurora units deliver simplified operation, maintenance, and line integration through the industry standards defined by Packaging Machinery Language (PackML). The units also feature a modular EtherNet/IP control platform from Rockwell Automation.
Along with a number of standard features, including recipe functionality, left or right hand orientation, bilingual operation, electric height adjustment, and a performance guarantee, Axon offers numerous custom options for Aurora units. This means customers only pay for the features most beneficial to their unique environment. In addition to stainless steel, Axon recently added air conditioning for the electrical enclosure, flange mounted disconnects, and a swing arm for an HMI panel to its lineup of options.
