Axon, powered by Pro Mach, assembled a display that offers a shrink sleeve applicator for every production environment, ranging from 70 up to 800 containers per minute (CPM). Axon applicator solutions showcased at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, September 25-27, feature ease of operation and quick changeover. (Axon Pack Expo Booth #C-2820)
The new SLX class of applicators for up to 800 CPM
The SLX platform, designed with ease of operation in mind, features changeover processes made fail-safe through machine self-monitoring and fast, easy-to-make precision machine adjustments. Application speed is automated and calibrated to line rate, allowing the applicator to speed up or slow down as needed without operator intervention. Axon offers the option of incorporating its new patent pending thin film delivery system for film thicknesses down to 25 microns. Thinner films mean material cost savings and more sustainable packaging. The SLX platform meets the PackML programming standard and delivers seamless communication and integration with up-stream and down-stream equipment. This results in faster start up, closely integrated operation with other machines on the line, and expedient troubleshooting.
The Lanzara for application up to 400 CPM
The Lanzara, a servo-controlled, mandrel-style applicator, delivers the highest output at the most sensible price of any applicator in the industry at speeds up to 400 CPM. With the Axon Smart Speed Control feature, Lanzara automatically increases or decreases the sleeving rate, matching upstream and downstream line speed without operator involvement for ‘set it and forget it’ operation. Smart Speed Control ensures optimum throughput, uptime, and quality. With a new Smart Cutting System, Axon has dramatically improved its film cutting technology, reducing the number of blade changeovers required by 66 percent when compared to the previous generation.
The EZ-150SL and ThermoFlow shrink tunnel for applications up to 150 CPM
In combination with Axon’s ThermoFlow shrink tunnel, the EZ-150SL, with its mandrel-style film delivery system easily handles sleeving operations at speeds up to 150 CPM and is ideal for craft beer production environments, or short-run operations for seasonal or specialty events. The…
