Waterloo, ON – Packaging machine and line changeover is usually viewed as lost time and productivity. Septimatech is changing that by helping packaging operations improve performance and productivity through more efficient, repeatable changeovers, precise container handling and increased flexibility.
At PACK EXPO International, November 6-9 in Chicago, Septimatech is featuring multiple packaging changeover and container handling solutions, including its Unison G2 high performance adjustable guide rail system, Multi-Lane Adjustment System, Rapid eXchange No Tool (RXNT) change parts, Custom Container Handling and OEM Replacement Change Parts, Smart Storage Systems, and Feed Screws and Drives.
Unison 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. Accurate, repeatable adjustments are accomplished without pneumatics or tools—manually or automatically through a PLC. 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.
Septimatech’s Multi-Lane Adjustment System allows one person to rapidly and simultaneously set up multiple packaging lanes without changing parts or using spacers and heavy lifting equipment. Up to 30 ft. (9m) of straight lanes can be adjusted from a single location in less than five minutes. Adjustments are accurate and repeatable with precise tolerances to improve container handling. Typically, a similar section would take two people 35-50 minutes to changeover. The Multi-Lane Adjustment System is suitable for any configuration or packaging application where multiple lanes are required.
Septimatech’s RXNT Rapid eXchange No Tool Change Parts allow quick, efficient repeatable changeover of precisely engineered parts on rotary machines. The RXNT system employs one-time installation of Nucleus components and Satellite parts designed for specific containers that quickly and easily lock into place without using tools. CNC routed Satellite parts provide pocket-to-pocket consistency for precise container handling.
Septimatech manufactures numerous innovative Custom Container Handling and OEM Replacement Change Parts that improve changeover and operating performance of many machines, including cappers, fillers, labelers, rinsers/washers, among others. Many leading consumer and industrial goods companies depend on Septimatech change parts to improve machine flexibility and productivity.
Septimatech’s Smart Storage Systems provide maximum storage space and organization for change parts in a lightweight, transportable cart. Smart Storage Systems make change parts easy to identify, organize, clean, protect from loss or damage, and are easy to transport around packaging line as needed.
Septimatech’s Feed Screw Drive Systems are easily adaptable to any packaging machinery or used as a stand-alone unit. Septimatech Feed Screw Drive Systems provide maximum performance for simple and complex applications and containers of any shape. Changeovers are repeatable, quick and easy for reliable performance and optimal packaging line efficiency. A range of Septimatech Feed Screws will also be on exhibit.
“We help our customers overcome challenges that limit their productivity and changeover efficiency,” said Sharron Gilbert, Septimatech President and CEO. “Our main goals are to simplify changeovers and maximize our customers’ current line and machine performance and flexibility for future container changes.”
