ProTech by ProMach™ is a secure, state-of-the-art, smart services option for customers looking for the utmost in machine effectiveness. Based on proven technology applied worldwide, ProTech has been optimized by ProMach for the packaging industry. The ProTech option is the latest addition to ProMach’s ProCustomer® portfolio of services, one of the most respected support programs in the industry.

While the hardware and software for ProTech will be embedded within Axon mandrel-style machines, customers can access as little or as much of the cloud-based system as they desire. Features can be turned on and off quickly and easily.

“ProTech is a win-win-win for customers, Axon, and ProMach,” said Ken Nyren, Engineering Manager for Axon. “Customers have the option of OEE information customized for their environment and available at any time via mobile or fixed devices. Service and tech support can be accomplished in minutes or hours rather than days. Through these support programs, Axon and ProMach receive a high level of customer loyalty that is only given to those that exceed expectations.”

The Axon applicators with ProTech functionality

Axon’s Lanzara next generation shrink-sleeve labeler is specifically designed to provide higher output and improved flexibility for up to 400 containers per minute (cpm). This OMAC PackML compliant machine can apply shrink-sleeve labels, tamper-evident bands, or multipacks with a sleeve lay flat width range of 2 to 8 inches (50 to 200 mm).

Axon’s Aurora series offers applicator speeds up to 300 full-body shrink sleeves per minute. The cantilevered frame is available in two stainless steel options: 304 grade for wet-filling rooms, or 316 grade for increased corrosion resistance. This makes the Aurora the ideal shrink-sleeve labeling choice for beverages, dairy products, household chemicals, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceuticals.

The 400SLX series is Axon’s high-speed shrink-sleeve applicator capable of up to 600 cpm on one head and up to 1,000 cpm on a dual head configuration. The 400SLX offers a wide range of standard features, such as a film cart with a festoon system that accumulates enough film to allow on-the-fly-splicing for nonstop operation.
