Schneider Packaging Introduces Pro-Adjust to Speed Machine Adjustments for Greater Efficiency of Multiple SKU's
Press release date: October 22, 2012
At Pack Expo 2012, McCormick Place, Chicago, October 28-31, 2012, Booth# 1228
CHICAGO, IL –Schneider Packaging Equipment is debuting Pro-Adjustsm, a new add-on solution that automatically adjusts all types of machines when changing sizes or formats at Pack Expo 2012, McCormick Place, Chicago, October 28-31, Booth# 1228.
As manufacturers are faced with the increasing demand to produce more SKU’s on existing equipment, the need to both improve line efficiency and reduce changeover time is paramount. The Pro-Adjust is designed to address the need for speed by providing a solution that can be added onto existing equipment, such as case packer, palletizer, or case loader to name a few, as a field retrofit or as an available low cost option on new equipment.
Pro-Adjust features an easy to use hand-held interface and quick connect power modules that makes installation, setup, and operation simple and quick. Pro-Adjust requires no programming and the easy to use interface simplifies SKU setup and operation. As product tolerances vary during normal production, the adjustment points can be easily adjusted either manually or through the interface.
“By automating adjustment points on a machine, changeovers are faster and more accurate, greatly enhancing machine uptime performance and overall equipment effectiveness,” indicates Terry Zarnowski, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Pro-adjust can be installed onto any machine, even if that machine is not made by Schneider.”
