Wexxar Bel Upgrades Its Flagship Agricultural Tray FormerOct 9, 2018
Wexxar Bel’s IPAK TF-330GH agricultural tray former is revamped for faster time to market, greater flexibility, and higher uptime
RICHMOND, British Columbia, October 9, 2018 – Wexxar Bel, a product brand of ProMach, introduced today the latest refinements of its leading tray former, IPAK TF-330GH for the agricultural industry, which is rated at up to 40 trays per minute. Engineering advancements shorten the lead time for machine delivery, give customers greater operational flexibility, improve uptime, and equip agricultural customers with a ruggedly constructed machine that requires minimal maintenance.
A new adjustable tooling system creates a more universal tray former – a platform that allows agricultural packaging operations to overcome the issues associated with forming trays from different suppliers. Adjustable tooling also gives packaging operations the flexibility of setting up new tray sizes without the need of sending samples to the factory. Through mandrel and folder adjustment, the operation can quickly continue to produce trays when inconsistency of material arises. Adjustable tooling reduces tooling costs and provides greater flexibility for in-field set-up of new tray sizes. Changeover time averages 10 minutes. Maintenance free lubrication reduces upkeep and improves uptime for greater throughput. The advanced gluing system option reduces adhesive consumption by up to 40 percent over earlier machine generations.
The IPAK TF-330GH is user-friendly and incorporates the latest available safety systems to help companies cope with a skilled labor shortage and an increasingly diverse workforce. Illustrative on-machine pictographs alleviate language barriers and guide operators through the changeover process. The TF-330GH ergonomic design makes it easier to physically load the magazine and also offers the opportunity to be more efficient with it new single-stage, side-load magazine option that doubles time between loading, freeing the operator for other duties.
