Schneider Packaging Equipment, the US-based specialist in end-of-line solutions for case packing and 'palletising', has unveiled a new MP-20 Multi-Packer/Bundler.
The MP-20 will take single products such as aseptic cartons and collate them into a bundle, insert a "J" or "U" card if required, and shrink wrap into a bundle using either PE, PVC, or registered films.
The single product is transferred onto the multipacker feed conveyor and divided into balanced lanes. Depending on the J-card or registered film selection, the appropriate motions will automatically take place. If registered film is selected, the J-card function will automatically be disabled. Motions are selectable through touchscreen operation.
If a J-card is required, a pick and place mechanism places the J-card in front of the collated product and simultaneously wraps it around the product as it enters the film plow station. The film is then cut and sealed as the product travels through the shrink tunnel and onto the system discharge conveyor.
The MP-20 features stainless steel construction, primary motions that are Servo operated for smooth, continuous operation and collation, and positive product handling.
Schneider manufactures a complete line of corrugated carton packers, automatic stackers, buffer accumulators, dispensers, conveyors, and other ancillary items. Their capabilities range from cartoning, case packing, and palletising to systems integration with cartoners, conveyors, coding/labelling equipment, product code scanners, weight checking, and stretch or shrink wrapping equipment, among others.
