It combines the power of two squaring bundlers connected with dual zone conveyors to meet the demands of modern flexo folder gluers with inline bundle breakers and operating at speeds up to 36 bundles/min.
Integrated and independent box manufacturers are looking for high speed bundling or in-line redundancy feature--Signode's'bundling system is fitted with dual coils and auto strap change and can be automatically taught a new bundle recipe in seconds. It also has bundle diversion technology that sends all bundles to the active bundler during a coil change or while the other temporarily inactive bundler “fixes itself” with the auto refeed feature. Once the inactive bundler changes the coil or the successful refeed corrects the rare misfeed; the inactive bundler will come back online automatically and share the workload with the active bundler.
The icon-drive HMI allows operators to quickly set up a new recipe with a few taps of the screen. Other enhancements to the software include maintenance troubleshooting tools such as a tracing feature, simple strapping system checks, an event list and many more. The new chute technology improves on previous generation of UHMW chutes by using a segmented chute where the chute gates are covered by a lifetime warranty. Changing a worn chute after several million cycles was one of customers biggest headaches. Now they can change a single segmented gate in 20 min. This ease of maintenance helps lower replacement parts cost while reducing service labor costs to a minimum.
