Rotary packaging system
The ergonomically sensitive Algus Universal 8 (U8) Packaging System is engineered to allow for in-plant reconfiguration allowing for different packaging formats, from simple face seal packs to complex club store packs.
The U8 offers the flexibility to add feeders for inserting components
and vision systems for quality assurance. The standard fully automated
U8 is 72-in. high x 102-in. wide x 96-in. deep. The machine includes 4
open product load stations, with a 12-in. x 16-in. seal area. Other
features of the U8 are “quick install” feeder stations for inserts,
blisters and cards. The U8 has an independent electro-mechanical drive
system as well as a servo driven turntable. The machine has full PLC
control and a user-friendly operator interface panel. Interlocked door
panels on the U8 base allow for quick access to the drive system
allowing quick reconfiguration of the machine in the field. Tooling
accessories include 8 product carrier nests, a blister and card
magazine, a blister plug rack and profiled seal die. Quick change
tooling and additional feeders are also available as options.
