Wexxar/BEL, powered by Pro Mach, is featuring its BEL 150/505g4ss washdown protected, stainless steel semi-automatic case former and sealer at Pack Expo Las Vegas, September 23-25, Booth C-2014.
The BEL 150/505g4ss semi-automatic case former and sealer is one of a series of new stainless steel systems from Wexxar/BEL that provides food and beverage plants the benefit of a cost effective, low maintenance case former and sealer specifically designed for washdown or high moisture environments.
The BEL 150/505g4ss includes a stainless steel frame; enhanced washdown enclosure, low-corrosion materials and parts, engineering-grade plastics; high performance Dekka tape heads; built-in safety features; and a compact, small footprint. Additional standard features include an automatic Uni-drive side belt conveyor. Each Wexxar/BEL ‘ss’ designated model boasts low cost of ownership and purchase price that are a fraction of the expense for custom washdown systems.
Automatic flap folders form and hold the box in place while supporting the contents to give operators ultimate control over when and how to pack products. Case size changes are performed with four quick, simple adjustments outlined on the machine for easy operation. Safety switches and E-stop guard against accidental activation or restart.
“The BEL 150/505g4ss meets the key criteria for packaging operations in washdown or high moisture environments—corrosion resistance and reduced wear parts at an outstanding cost,” said William Chu, General Manager, Wexxar/BEL. “Its small footprint fits easily into existing packaging lines and its user-friendly operation increases productivity and throughput immediately. At under $25,000, this system is a real value for food and beverage companies needing a washdown capable machine to increase production.”
