Sonoco Alloyd, part of Sonoco announced an industry-leading five-year warranty on its Aergo® line of sealing machines for commercial and medical applications.
The new limited warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship for a period of five years from the date the equipment was purchased by the original owner. Virtually unprecedented in the industry, the warranty is expected to benefit Sonoco Alloyd customers by reducing total cost of ownership, improving operational efficiencies and increasing profitability.
“We understand how disruptive and costly machine failures can be, which is why we are committed to making machines that last and work as hard as our customers do.” said Sonoco Alloyd Vice President Jim Lassiter. “The five-year warranty provides added value and peace of mind for customers, while at the same time demonstrating the confidence we have in producing the finest, most reliable equipment in the industry.” The Aergo line of packaging machinery features heat, fusion and radio frequency (RF) sealing technology designed with work safety and ease-of-use in mind. To further enhance productivity, effectiveness and application usage, Aergo sealing machines can be scaled up with additional options and proprietary “Quick Change” heat seal tooling.
This year at PACK EXPO, Sonoco Alloyd will be demonstrating its Aergo® 2 Max with PLC and Aergo® 8 packaging machines in Booth LS-6106. The Aergo 2 Max with PLC is a two-station heat sealing machine designed specifically for the rigorous demands of medical packaging applications. It also offers an expanded 20 in. x 28 in. seal area to maximize throughput. The Aergo 8, is an eight-station rotary blister packaging machine with our new EasyLock Heat Plate system that streamlines changeovers and minimizes operator exposure to hot/heavy heat plates. Additional information about Sonoco Alloyd’s new five-year warranty on Aergo sealing machines will be made readily available with company representatives on hand to answer questions.
