Edson, a product brand of ProMach, introduces at PACK EXPO the new 3600C compact case packer designed specifically for the price and size requirements of the away-from-home towel and tissue industry. The 15 cases-per-minute 3600C case packer offers an exceptional price to performance ratio by leveraging advanced systems found on the industry leading Edson 3600 case packing platform that have proven themselves in hundreds of installations.
Similar to other 3600 platform case packers–the 20 cases-per-minute 3600 for the retail market and the 26 cases-per-minute 3600HS for e-commerce customers–the 3600C is an all-in-one case packer featuring integrated case erector, product collator, and case sealer. The 3600C packs rolled tissue, facial tissue, hand towel, and folded napkins for away-from-home industrial and commercial customers. It can also be used to pack cases of diapers and feminine hygiene products.
Optional touch-of-a-button servo systems precisely implement format changes in as little as 15 minutes, which improves overall equipment effectiveness for throughput and uptime. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags on all change parts lower the risk of machine damage as the machine will not operate if there is a mismatch between case recipe and change part. Early tucking of minor case flaps accelerates product capture and delivers greater stability and control of product and case. For improved ease of use, the 3600C features a 10-inch Allen-Bradley color touch screen HMI. To deliver the utmost in flexibility, these units can pack regular slotted containers (RSCs) and half slotted containers (HSCs) as small as 12" L x 8" W x 7½" D and as large as 28" L x 24" W x 24" D.
Interactive video displays featuring 3D modeling allows Pack Expo attendees to explore system details of the 3600C, 3600, and 3600HS.
