Waterloo, ON – Septimatech announced today its new Unison G2 rapid change, high performance guide rail and container control system. G2 is the second generation of Septimatech’s modular Unison Guide Rail System which delivers industry-leading changeover time, adjustment accuracy, and container control.
The Unison system allows customers to precisely change up to 80 feet (24m) of guide rail, including any configuration of straight, curves, corners, and crossovers from a single adjustment location. The system is easily adjusted manually or automatically through a PLC. The Unison system adjusts without pneumatics or tools to precise settings without further fine tuning across the line. Corners, curves, and crossovers maintain true curve and width dimensions without further individual adjustment. Operator variations are eliminated through precise dial settings for different containers and high precision rack and pinion adjusters. Line changes which typically take hours are reduced to minutes with Unison.
Flexible horizontal and vertical adjustments provide outstanding control of nearly any container size and shape without shingling, tipping and other production slow downs. Height and width can be adjusted simultaneously or independently for greater flexibility and improved control of different container shapes and sizes. All adjustments are consistent, accurate and repeatable for predictable line performance and container control in every change.
Unison customers typically report increased throughput efficiency and uptime, reduced product damage and loss, improved ergonomics and line performance, and savings in labor, time and production costs.
Unison G2 enhancements include a smaller foot print to take up less space and an enhanced modular mounting system to simplify and speed up installation, increase adaptability to new and existing conveyors, and reduce the number of needed components. Unison G2 includes increased capabilities for height adjustment and multipoint container contact. This provides more flexibility to handle a wide range of containers and increased container control. Although lighter and smaller, Unison G2 maintains the same robust performance in handling nearly any container size and shape including large heavy containers at high speeds. All Unison products are backed by industry-leading guarantees.
Unison G2‘s increased modularity also allows greater versatility to reuse, add, remove, or change components as packaging lines evolve or needs change.
“Unison is the ideal solution for customers with multiple container sizes or shapes that want to simplify line management and operations to save time, labor and costs,” says Sharron Gilbert, Septimatech President and CEO. “Unison G2 takes our system to the next level of lean manufacturing by improving modularity, expandability, versatility, and performance. For our customers this means faster setup, less downtime, increased product flexibility, easier maintenance and overall greater return on their investment.”
Unison G2 systems are available as standard, pre-made components or as a custom solution for unique, difficult packaging challenges. Septimatech provides full-service sales, service, engineering and customer support backed by a commitment to help customers achieve maximum value and performance from their packaging lines.
