In addition to the reduction in air consumption, the Wexxar Bel BEL 505 V2 case former has a wider case-size range with a minimum width of 5 in. This improvement provides greater flexibility to the machine as more and more companies are utilizing smaller case sizes. This standard minimum width also reduces the cost to purchase for some applications, which would have required a custom modification to the original model.
Due to the addition of corrosion-resistant materials such as anodized aluminum and stainless steel on most machine components, the BEL 505 V2 is more durable.
Changeovers have also been revamped to be easier and more efficient by removing the locking mechanisms, allowing width changeovers to be performed without having to unlock and relock like the previous BEL 505 model. The machine is also easier to service as the pneumatic controls – operated with a single start / e-stop switch valve, are located at the front as opposed to the bottom of the machine.
