Pearl Technologies to Showcase New Enhanced Safety Products at Converters Expo
Innovative design improvements create safer working environment in high volume production lines
Savannah, New York - March 20, 2017 - Pearl Technologies today announced that it is showcasing several new packaging products at this year's Converters Expo aimed at increasing converter line safety. The featured products not only deliver higher productivity and lower cost of ownership, but also address the growing need to increase safety in today's high volume converter lines.
"We constantly talk to our customers and one of the things we hear repeatedly is the need to increase the safety of converter production lines," said Laurent Cros, CEO of Pearl Technologies. "Pearl manufactures some of the sharpest punches and cutters in the industry, so we took it upon ourselves to re-design some of our products to not only keep production lines operating at peak efficiency, but also provide a safer work environment for the production teams. For example, the new safety enclosure on our lightning wicket punch eliminates exposure to the sharp punch teeth from the time the cutter is received, stocked, transferred within the facility, installed into the unit and removed at time of disposition. The enclosure eliminates any chance of accidental cuts to workers who handle the unit."
Pearl's innovative safety solutions will be on display at Converters Expo at Booth #67, March 22-23 at the Lambeau Field Atrium, Green Bay, WI. New featured products include:
Lighting Wicket Punch Safety Enclosure
Pearl's Lighting Wicket attachments are recognized for their quality, ease-of-use and flexibility on high volume production lines. Pearl has added a safety enclosure that surrounds the punch at all times for increased operator safety when doing punch changes. https://pearlproductcatalog.pearltechinc.com/item/punches/lightning-wicket-punches/lightning-wicket-punch-enclosure
Pivot Mount Assembly for Side Rail Mount Flex Units
The innovative Pivot Mount Assembly for Pearl's Flex Units allows operators to rotate the unit 180 degrees during changeovers for easier access to the die plate, screws and punch. This orientation improves visibility, which prevents the punch from accidentally falling on the operator's hands. An easy-to-use location pin allows the unit to move in 90-degree increments.
Remote Spreader Bar
Also new is a remote-control feature Spreader Bar; Pearl's rendition to bowed rollers. This new feature allows operators to quickly change the bow's operating parameters when located in tight or high up locations, across wide webs, or where access to the equipment may cause potential safety hazards to personnel.
