- Product Infeed and Tray Magazine The Product Infeed incorporates Zero-Gap technology to ensure that all rows of all packs are full. The high-capacity tray magazine extends out from underneath the infeed for fast, easy reloading.
- Escapement and Grouper The Escapement removes upstream line pressure for better grouping. The Grouper separates the products into groups based on the lanes and rows of that pack.
- Flight/Tray Merge Section The Flight Merge brings the trays up underneath the grouped product and positions tray tabs for gluing.
- Gluing & Compression Section The Gluing & Compression Section applies glue to the tray tabs using electronics-controlled pneumatic spray guns. Electronic controls ensure precision glue application over a wide range of tray sizes.
- Wrapping Section with Robo-Wand The servo-controlled Robo-Wand provides simple and accurate product wrapping over a wide range of product heights, widths and confi gurations.
High-Capacity, Ergonomic Tray Blank Magazine
The horizontally loaded tray blank magazine allows the operator to load up to 1500 blanks without bending or stretching. An optional 3000-blank capacity magazine is available.
Slide-out Film Feed
The film bed pivots downward so that the entire assembly slides out for quick inspection and ease of maintenance. Recovery from a jam is quick and easy.
Consistent Film Tension
Wrapping film remains taut and maintains continuous flow for worry-free output, even film cuts and dependable product wraps.
Side Film Stand
The dual-roll side film stand provides high-capacity film inventory for less frequent roll replacement, ergonomic loading, simple film splicing, and open access to film rolls.
- Zero-Gap Infeed eliminates product void early in loading process, providing jam-free operation and avoiding lane product starving. Smoothly and reliably, the infeed guarantees steady release of product, with no tipping, product damage or mis-packs.
- Compression Paddles guide product with positive control for precise tray forming with smooth, even and orderly product flights.
- Robo-Wand™ wrapping system seamlessly adapts to different product profiles at the touch of a button. High-speed, wrinkle-free precision wraps on all types of packs with intuitive height and length pattern detection. Multi-axis servo-controlled operation and magnetically-held design allows for limitless packing possibilities with minimal maintenance and no change parts.
- Intuitive Operator Interface on a high-resolution run screen, displaying at-a-glance system status. Machine speed is indicated by a recognizable speedometer graphic.
- Changeover from one pack style to another is quick and simple – the Tritium was engineered for unsupported operation, so changing to a pad, tray or U-board configuration can be done in 15 minutes. The operator simply selects a new product on the operator interface screen and installs a small number of lightweight change parts. All change parts are CNC precisionmachined for accurate fit and plug-and-play operation.
- Modular Construction and engineering to extremely tight tolerances ensures gentle product transitions and smooth transfers between conveyors.
