Wexxar Bel and Texwrap Demonstrate New Tray-Packaging Solution at WestPack 2020
Wexxar Bel and Texwrap are reportedly joining forces to bring a new, higher level of automation to tray-packaging applications in booth #5221 at WestPack 2020, February 11-13, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, Calif.
Wexxar Bel is integrating the IPAK TF200 Fully Automatic Tray Former with two Texwrap machines: the 2219 Intermittent Motion L-Seal System and the 1322 Single-Chamber Forced Air Convection Tunnel. Together, the integration is a complete tray forming and shrink-wrapping solution ideal for any industry.
The display at WestPack will demonstrate its capabilities with a versatile 4-corner tray, showing the ease of transporting and stocking products to retail ready solutions.
“The integration at WestPack will allow attendees to observe the compact footprint of the TF200 and the rugged design of the 2219. The versatility of a 4-corner tray opens up many opportunities for any company with tray forming and shrink-wrapping needs,” said Mike “Parky” Parkinson, IPAK product manager.
The IPAK TF200 provides tray-forming solutions for a number of different industries and applications. Through the use of Wexxar Bel’s mandrel and compression configurations, the TF200 forms a range of tray styles and sizes, including complex designs with telescoping lids, triangulated corners or retail ready display features.
The Texwrap 2219 Intermittent Motion L-Sealer System is designed for applications where speed and rugged reliability are a must. These versatile units can wrap up to 40 pieces per minute when combined with the proper infeed. This impressive rate, coupled with conveyor speeds of up to 100 feet per minute and Texwrap’s exclusive Motion Trim™ technology, makes the 2219 the fastest L-sealer on the market today.
Rounding out the integration is the Texwrap 1322 Single-Chamber Forced Air Convection Tunnel, which uses large volumes of high velocity air to impart the necessary energy to the film for the best shrink package. The 1322 employs digital temperature controls, high velocity fans, individual top and bottom controls for air direction and variable speed conveyors. Each component contributes to the process of applying the precise amount of heat to the right places and for the correct amount of time.
While the integration at WestPack 2020 will be demonstrating with a 4-corner tray, the IPAK TF200 can also form many other styles of trays. Features of the IPAK TF200 include:
- 40 trays per minute
- Reliable operation with precision servo-driven blank advance and mandrel
- Quick changeovers in less than 10 minutes
- Venturi-style vacuum system for low maintenance and reliable operation
- Wexxar’s WISE smart touchscreen controls system
- Fully interlocked guard doors and emergency stops for increased safety
