Motorized Unwind Reel
Provides for the motorized pay out of the material off the roll, controlled by a transducer or switches on a vertical slide assembly or sensor reading the web in a vacuum box. Benefit: provides an even web flow without backpressure, to optimize web flow and to minimize material jams, reducing downtime.
As an enhanced version of the item above, this system has preset positions so the machine head goes to the selected position for a given size container. Benefit: reduces changeover time further, reducing downtime.
Motorized Height- Up/Down
Motorizes the up/down movement of the machine head during product changeover. Benefit: saves time by motorizing an otherwise manual function, reducing changeover time and increasing productivity.
Material Out Sensor
If an operator misses a "Low Material" indication and the roll is fully consumed, this sensor will pause the machine and stop the material just after it comes off the core, providing enough material to splice in the next roll. Benefit: Prevents the end of the material from running through the machine; minimizing the need to rethread the machine, reducing downtime in the event a roll runs out.
