1. INTELLIGENT TRANSFER SYSTEM AND CARTONER

Debuting in North America, R.A Jones’ Intelligent Flexible Transfer System (iFTS) utilizes familiar state-of-the-art technologies to solve product handling and correlation challenges. Important features include six-dimensional floating shuttle transfers, ability to collect, group, orientate and layer product for downstream packaging, and a footprint, which is a fraction of the size of traditional transfer solutions.

The new iFTS will be integrated with R.A Jones’ latest Criterion CLI-100 intermittent motion cartoning machine, which is outfitted with the new Acc-U-Change Plus technology. This feature allows for push-button changeover as well as a flexible magazine and carton feed, providing manufacturers with the option to run paperboard and corrugated cartons.

2. TUBE FILLER WITH FLEXIBLE SECONDARY PACKAGING EQUIPMENT

Norden will showcase the NM 902 tube filling technology integrated with their NTP 80 tray and sleeve packer – both connected by FlexLink’s X85 conveyor equipment. This solution is ideal for pharmaceutical and personal care product manufacturers.

The NM 902 tube filler can handle a wide range of tube materials including plastic, metal, laminates or mono-materials, filling up to 100 tubes per minute. Tubes exit the NM 902 onto FlexLink’s X85 conveyor, a stainless-steel conveyor system engineered to be modular, robust and easy to clean. The tubes are transferred to Norden’s NTP 80 machine where they can be arranged in multiple configurations in either standard cartons or shelf-ready trays.

3. POUCH MACHINE WITH INLINE PRINTING TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED FOR PHARMA ENVIRONMENTS

HAPA’S latest WEB 4.0 5D inline digital printing technology is integrated along side the Enflex PH-11DX pouch machine. The WEB 4.0 5D is state-of-the-art for inline digital printing and inspection of continuous web packaging materials. It reduces project validation implementation efforts and risk, while also decreasing installation and commissioning efforts

Enflex’s PH-11 DX is a Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal (HFFS) machine for single, twin or strings of sachets. The machine operates from a single reel of flexible packaging material, forming the pouch, filling it with product, and sealing. The new powder dosing system is designed to meet high hygiene standards and is also compliant to 21 CFR part 11 requirements.
