Septimatech is pleased to announce our newest product – the Unison® QT Quick Turn Guide Rail and Product Handling Control System!
This system expands upon our flagship high performance Unison® Guide Rail System, helping Customers reduce changeover time from hours to seconds with accurate, repeatable, fast adjustment times.
Customers in every segment of the packaging industry can benefit from this system. It takes seconds to incrementally adjust guide rail width by 6.25 inches (160mm) with one turn of hand wheel. With just a quick turn of the adjustment handle, operators can uniformly set the correct Guide Rail position and lock it in place. The Unison® QT’s quick turn handle eliminates the need for individual Guide Rail adjustment, tweaking, or fine-tuning the changeover setup.
Each adjuster can be customized on-site to suit exact package sizes, giving optimal line flexibility to add or remove package sizes in the future. Adjustments are incremental to position every 1/4” (6.35mm) over the entire stroke range for quick, repeatable, and reliable changeovers.
The Unison® QT adjuster handle can be added to a new conveyor or retrofitted on existing conveyors to create an easy to use, tool-less repeatable line adjustment system.
Unison® Quick Turn Results
Based on feedback from early Unison® QT Customers, this system is highly effective, resulting in:
- Reduced changeover set-up times to less than 40 seconds with minimal and sustained operator training.
- Return on investment in less than 5 months depending on the specific application.
- Significant improvements to ergonomics, health and safety, and sustainability.
