SleekWrapper debuts new flow wrapping machine
SleekWrapper, part of the Paxiom Group, has introduced its new fully servo-driven horizontal flow wrapping machine, designed to provide smaller or start-up operations with efficiency advantages.
Built in a heavy duty stainless steel frame, the Sleek40 Wrapper is capable of handling 60-100 packs per minute and a fully adjustable forming box makes it suitable for confectionery products of all sizes.
The economical 4-axis Sleek40 Wrapper uses four non-proprietary Mitsubishi servo motors and servo drives that create quick and easy changeover and adjustment. No chains, gears and lubrication is needed, the company says. An additional benefit is lower maintenance costs compared to older mechanical, 2-axis machines on the market today.
It comes with an easy-to-operate colour touch screen and is built to quickly recall specific recipes with its 100-product memory setting. Other enhanced features include a no-product no-bag setting, automatic opening of the heated wheels to prevent the burning of film, and automatic homing of the jaws when changing over to different product sizes.
The Sleek40’s cantilevered body and in-feed are designed for easy cleaning and maintenance to ensure the highest levels of hygiene. Measuring 87 inches long and equipped with wheels, this flow wrapper is very compact, making it suitable to use in a limited production space.
