Line Adjustment Solutions
NEW! Unison® QT – Quick Turn Adjustable Guide Rail and Product Handling Control System
Unison® QT helps 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.
Unison® Automated Guide Rail System
Unison® Automation is the ultimate Guide Rail Adjustment feature, freeing up operators and their time for other production areas. As well as improving line efficiency and reducing changeover time, this system reduces line downtime and eliminates the need for operator tweaking or adjustment during setup and production.
The human-machine interface provides operators with instant information about the state of their packaging line during changeover and run time. Through the easy to use Unison® touchscreen, operators can perform key functions including automated changeovers, manual jogging, recipe management and teaching, maintenance, and diagnostics.
Unison® Corners allows customers to quickly and easily adjust Guide Rails through corners, cross-overs, and s-curves while maintaining exact clearances and precise tolerances. It prevents container shingling and line stoppages due to jams and fallen bottles.
Every Unison® corner and curve improves and increases production uptime, efficiency through container handling control, and performance.
Unison® VH – Vertical and Horizontal Adjustment
Customers in every segment of the packaging industry will benefit from Unison® VH’s ability to adjust an upper Guide Rail vertically to any height, allowing the Guide Rail to be positioned in exactly the right location on the container. Combined with the independent horizontal adjustment, this feature allows for precise configuration relative to container profile.
This Guide Rail ensures optimum control for a wide variety of challenging container geometry shapes and sizes prone to shingling, popping up, or tipping. Customers will no longer require dedicated packaging lines with complex rail systems to run a range of short, tall, narrow, or wide container profiles.
Machine Changeover Solutions
Our Anti-Torque Star was designed to control and cap a non-rigid bleach container with a complex geometric shape. It provided the stability and superior anti-torque capability needed to properly cap the product.
The Spotting Star was designed to ensure containers with an offset neck and handle would maintain proper orientation during filling. This dynamic spotting mechanism was mounted to the infeed star that worked with rollers in the pockets to rotate the containers and lock them in place once proper orientation for filling was achieved, virtually eliminating jams and miss-fills.
This star design with a urethane contact surface doesn’t leave sharp burrs or large deformations when exposed to broken glass, like UHMW, Nylon, or traditional plastic materials do.
This product significantly reduces noise during glass product handling and offers better resistance to wear compared to plastic guides.
Removable Pocket Star
Created as a robust, cost-effective solution to replace existing expensive crowner star assemblies, the Removable Pocket Star features a water damage resistant stainless steel skeleton with durable inserts that are easily replaced in minutes when required.
Wear-Strip Guides are ideal for customers experiencing label scuffing, excessive wear, or high maintenance costs. Septimatech designed a series of removable and replaceable wear-strips of different materials to fit various guides, which can easily be replaced when worn down instead of replacing the entire assembly.
These strips increase lifespan of guides, while also reducing the likelihood of damage to sensitive labels or containers due to friction.
The Universal Gripper is a versatile filler neck-handling solution designed for customers handling large profile containers in the edible oil or industrial oil industries. This product holds and orients a range of neck sizes without needing to change or add components, resulting in faster changeovers, reduced downtime, and quicker setup.
Customers from the household and personal care industries can reduce changeover time and the number of change parts for their filler with the Adjustable Positioner.
This product can be accurately and consistently set for different-sized containers; it is easily adjustable at four critical points to allow effective handling of large and small containers.
Our Feed Screws improve container control as the container enters the Feed Screw at the infeed, and as the container accelerates to the required discharge pitch to transfer smoothly into the machine star wheels.
Achieve flawless container transfers without scuffing, damage, marking, or spillage thanks to these products’ smooth surface finish and pocket-to-pocket accuracy.
Feed Screw Drive Systems
Septimatech’s Feed Screw Drive Systems are custom-engineered and manufactured to achieve the results you need in container handling. Whether your application requires single, dual, synchro, or infeed control, we can develop a creative Feed Screw Drive System for your specific application that makes difficult-to-control containers a thing of the past.
Smart Storage Systems
Our rugged and robust carts are designed to allow for maximum parts storage, organization, cleaning capabilities, ease of removal, and transportation of parts to the packaging line for improved operator productivity and floor space consideration.
The Smart Storage System also features built-in considerations for ergonomics, health, and safety.
