BLG will be demonstrating a fully automatic top load cartoning line integrated with a high speed flow wrap system, as it would typically be used within a candy, cereal or bakery bar production.
Setting the pace will be the LJ-DRT collator/loader. Dual race track product collation with servo infeed and pick & place robotic loading give running speeds of up to 600ppm. As high performance is combined with great flexibility, the LJ-DRT can naturally handle a wide range of product sizes and cartons up to 700mm long, yet changeovers can take less than five minutes.
The Group's advanced Automatic Distribution System (ADS) has a height adjustable, 1.1m wide, single belt feeding system with see-through light curtain guarding that improves product visibility and line efficiency across a wide range of products and sizes.
The ADS will align and feed bars into one the leading examples of the Group's award winning machinery range, a 1000ppm, Flowtronic 120XS flow wrapper. Its state of the art electronic braking system features advanced software that continuously monitors electro-magnetic couplings. Pneumatic web reel clamps and Auto Film Tracking Unit ensure consistent tube forming and high speed film feeding.
Erecting the cartons will be the classic version of the formers, the HS2/60 Double Head Lock Former, which is a thoroughly proven machine, ruggedly built with simple mechanical operation at speeds up to 60 strokes per minute. Large numbers of the HS2/60 are in daily use around the world erecting trays and cartons as standalone machines or as part of complete BLG packaging lines. The Bradman Lake Brand's extensive range of forming heads means that a variety of carton styles can be erected.
Completing the line will be the Compact R Right Angle Carton Closer with rubber fingered conveyors for flexible control during closing and sealing of top load cartons, designed for companies who want a small footprint.
Pack Expo 2007 will again show that the Bradman Lake Group has established itself as a world leader in Packaging Technology and Line Integration. Design and supply of machinery from a single source ensures greater efficiency, better product handling, increased output and a safeguard of BLG customer's profitability.
