The timing screw will ensure the product is on the proper pitch for the bottom lug conveyor to drive the product through the machine. After, a high speed rotary feeder will place the sleeve on top of the product. Finally, a closing system will wraparound the sleeve and then seal it via hot-melt adhesive or locking tabs. The HD-CMS features a very compact and robust frame capable of up to 200 ppm.

The unit comes complete with Allen Bradley servo motor and drives, as well as an AB CompactLogix PLC Controller. Quick changeover features are available on the HD-CMS, such as push button all-servo driven changeover, SIKO counters, scales and pointers and more. The HD-CMS can be constructed using stainless steel or equivalent to run in a wet environment.
