Feeding and product handling specialists Partners in Packaging (Machine Systems) will showcase a number of the latest feeding technologies from its principals on stand B11 at this year’s show, as well as new developments in denesting – one made in the UK.
One of the stand highlights is the new ‘Flowfold Two’, base card feeder and folder from Streamfeeder. Designed for simple and repeatable operator size changing in less than 2 minutes, this latest machine design has evolved through the experience gained from installing over 1,800 machines in the UK market, says PiP.
In addition, the Northfield Universal Bandolier feeder will be running continuously wrapped perforated bandolier (‘continuous string’ style) promotional inserts. The Universal is used to feed a variety of 2D and 3D items such as promotional coupons and dosing spoons into host machines such as baggers and cartoners.
Also on show is PiP’s new, UK manufactured range of Pick and Place tray denesters. The high speed rotary machine RPP Quad will be denesting trays at speeds of up to 150/min. “We have incorporated the latest drive and control system on offer to produce a very high speed yet flexible machine,” said Duncan Macintyre, director at PiP.
The latest design A Series Twin intermittent denester will also be demonstrated, handling a range of deeper trays for later installation onto a flowrapper at a major pie manufacturer. The A Series Twin is a wash-down stainless machine with quick size change adjustability, with the added flexibility to be able to handle deeper trays.
Pip’s expertise enables them to offer machines to feed a vast range of products from syringes and dose cups to trays and lids.
