ME enhances packaging machinery portfolio

25 June 2010

The new Semi Automatic tuck and fold overwrapper from Marden Edwards extends the packaging machine specialists portfolio.

A need to supply customers with a fully flexible, reliable, adjustable tooling system has been fulfilled by the design and manufacture of the Marden Edwards SEMI-AUTO.

The machine offers a large pack size capacity with the ability to change between sizes without the need for change part tooling.

The SEMI AUTO can be changed between sizes in fewer than 10 minutes, making this machine ideal for customers for small batch runs and high frequency of change over.

The fitment of a film slitter offers the user a simple way to manage film stock – just stock the largest width and by using the twin knife blades trim the film to the correct width for each carton. An inverter drive handles the film length requirement, digitally adjusted, assists in rapid change over and set up.

The operator foot pedal begins the wrapping cycle, film is driven to the correct length, proven guillotine action (from our extensive automatic  overwrapper range) cuts the film, the operator manually makes the lateral seal and deposits the pack into the folding deck where the Individual Pack Transportation indexes the product through the tucking and folding process. Solenoid operated end sealers that can be profiled to suit individual pack sizes, seals the end tuck and fold. Outputs of up to 10 wraps per minute can be achieved.

The additional of flocking to all pack contact parts keeps the fresh and clean appearance of customer products. The option of Tear Tape applicator allows customers to add easy open tear tape to each overwrap.

Customers only require a single phase electrical connection, no compressed air is used and comes supplied fully guarded and to the latest CE safety regulations.
