Extreme Packaging shrink wrapper makes production system integration easy

Extreme Packaging Machinery, Rancho Santa Margarita, California, manufactures high-performance automatic shrink wrappers/ baggers, shrink tunnels and infeed systems for a wide range of industries, including food, pharmaceutical, consumer goods and building supply.

Extreme designs its shrink wrap systems for ease of use, versatility, high speed, and low film consumption.

Extreme machines are constructed with efficiency and sustainability in mind, adapting the latest control, drive and sensor technology to meet the specific packaging needs of customers. All wrappers are designed for continuous motion, where sealing mechanism moves with the product, resulting in higher output speeds with fewer rejects and much lower film consumption.

Extreme advantages include:

  • Direct drives virtually eliminate maintenance and repair
  • Gull wing doors for easy access to electromechanical components
  • Touch screen operator panel on swivel for easy operation
  • Lower shrink film consumption due to film path and side seal design
  • Innovative design and highest quality of workmanship

Extreme builds shrink wrap systems for leading consumer packaged goods manufacturers, and many small- to mid-size manufacturing companies and contract packagers in a broad spectrum of industries. For PACK EXPO 2015 Extreme is showcasing a SAL-Series shrink wrap system with a 10” wide touch screen from B&R Industrial Automation.

Managing the wrapper system’s control and motion execution is B&R’s Power Panel C70, which integrates the HMI and controller into one unit. The C70 is connected to the servos, AC drives, and I/O through the POWERLINK Ethernet network for high-speed control of all machine functions. With one controller managing motion and machine control, Extreme Packaging’s customers benefit from having fewer components and spare parts – and easier integration with other production systems.

The wrapper’s motion control, safety functions, operator interface and control software enable each part of the system – infeed, wrapper, seal head and shrink tunnel – to work together seamlessly.
