PDC International Corp.: Multipacker provides 24/7 uptime

PDC International’s R-300A Multipacker, with speeds up to 350 cpm, has a Zero-Downtime feature that allows it to run while film is being spliced between rolls.  
To achieve this, a PDC Accumulator Module accumulates film while ramping down run speed for 60 seconds--the time it takes to manually splice the film.  This eliminates shutdowns to maximize equipment uptime. Other features include tool-less size changeover, ergonomic color-coded handles, SIKO digital indicator dials, and motorized machine head height with preset positions, all of which also facilitate quick changeover.  The R-300A configures seamlessly as a multipacker or a shrink labeler and can be easily changed over to operate in either mode.
