Adjustable tooling also gives packaging operations the flexibility of setting up new tray sizes without the need of sending samples to the factory. Through mandrel and folder adjustment, the operation can quickly continue to produce trays when inconsistency of material arises. Adjustable tooling reduces tooling costs and provides greater flexibility for in-field set-up of new tray sizes. Maintenance free lubrication reduces upkeep and improves uptime for greater throughput. The advanced gluing system option reduces adhesive consumption by up to 40 percent over earlier machines.
The IPAK TF-330GH is easily and safely operated by less technically trained personnel thanks to several features. For example, on-machine pictographs, rather than words, guide operators through the changeover process. A new option – the single-stage, side-load magazine – doubles the time between loading, freeing operators for other duties. Ergonomic design elements make it physically easier to load the magazine. Safety systems throughout the IPAK TF-330GH feature the latest technology.
