Septimatech is featuring two new rapid change packaging line solutions and a sample of its full line of changeover and productivity products at Pack Expo Las Vegas, September 28-30, Booth C-3510. Septimatech will introduce its Unison G2 high performance adjustable guide rail system and its Multi-Lane Adjustment System. Septimatech also will exhibit their Rapid eXchange No Tool (RXNT) change parts, feed screw drive systems, and feed screws.
Unison G2 is the second generation of Septimatech’s modular Unison Guide Rail System which delivers industry-leading changeover time, adjustment accuracy, and container control. The Unison system allows customers to precisely change up to 80 feet (24m) of guide rail, including any configuration of straight, curves, corners, and crossovers from a single adjustment location. The system is easily adjusted manually or automatically through a PLC. The Unison system adjusts without pneumatics or tools to precise settings without further fine tuning across the line. Corners, curves, and crossovers maintain true curve and width dimensions without further individual adjustment. Operator variations are eliminated through precise dial settings for different containers and high precision rack and pinion adjusters. Line changes which typically take hours are reduced to minutes with Unison.
Flexible horizontal and vertical adjustments provide outstanding control of nearly any container size and shape without shingling, tipping and other production slow downs. Height and width can be adjusted simultaneously or independently for greater flexibility and improved control of different container shapes and sizes. All adjustments are consistent, accurate, and repeatable for predictable line performance and container control in every change.
Septimatech’s new Multi-Lane Adjustment System allows customers to rapidly and simply adjust multiple packaging lanes, including corners and funnels, without changing parts, using lane spacers, or heavy lifting equipment. New containers can be set up without spacers. Changes are accurate and repeatable with precise tolerances to improve container handling. Up to a 30 foot (9m) section can be adjusted from a single location by one person. Corners can be adjusted as tight as a 24 inch (610 mm) radius. Containers can be funneled from four to one. With the Multi-Lane Adjustment System a 23 foot (7m) section that typically takes two people 35-50 minutes to changeover can be completed in less than 5 minutes by one person.
Septimatech’s RXNT Rapid eXchange No Tool Change Parts allow quick, efficient repeatable changeover of precisely engineered parts on rotary machines. The RXNT system employs one-time installation of Nucleus components and Satellite parts designed for specific containers that quickly and easily lock into place without using tools. CNC routed Satellite parts provide pocket-to-pocket consistency for precise container handling.
Septimatech’s Feed Screw Drive Systems are easily adaptable to any packaging machinery or used as a stand-alone unit. Septimatech Feed Screw Drive Systems provide maximum performance for simple and complex applications and containers of any shape. Changeovers are repeatable, quick and easy for reliable performance and optimal packaging line efficiency. A range of Septimatech Feed Screws will also be on exhibit.
