What’s new: Pneumatic Scale
Examples of the new generation of homegrown packaging machinery include the first rotary servo-driven bottle capper introduced by a U.S. company Pneumatic Scale a Barry Wehmiller Company. According to Pneumatic Scale Manager of Capping Engineering Scott McSherry the technology is revolutionary helping his company achieve “breakthroughs in capping torque control throughput and flexibility.”
The capper which is available in three frame sizes “features a cleaner cGMP design and requires virtually no maintenance” says McSherry. “In-process control and real-time process monitoring provide the ultimate in capping technology.”
Pneumatic Scale’s rapid pace of development highlights the dynamics of the global marketplace today. The PacDrive SCL servo technology was introduced in the U.S. just one year ago at PACK EXPO Las Vegas and already a North American builder is introducing it into its designs. Contrast this to the original PacDrive technology which took a few years to catch on here.
