New product from PackSys Global: Swiss Downstream Line (SDL)

  • PackSys Global AG

Swiss partnership drives innovation

On 10 September 2015, PackSys Global participated in a unique event at IMD AG in Brügg. Four Swiss market leaders in the plastic packaging industry presented their cooperatively engineered innovations combining each company's specific skills: IMD (inspection/handling), PackSys Global (slitting/folding), HAPA (digital printing) and Tanner (preform feeding). The new innovative solutions are based on expertise, newest technologies, experience and of course Swiss quality.

At this exclusive product launch an international audience from the industry saw demonstrations of each new system with experts on hand to answer questions. 

Swiss Downstream Line SDL

The Swiss Downstream Line SDL is the result of this joint development between the two market leaders, IMD and PackSys Global, combining their extensive skills. As the name implies, the Swiss Downstream Line SDL is a complete downstream line for plastic closure prodution; it includes inspection, slitting and folding.

The compact and standardized layout sets new standards. Driven by the IMDvista® V5 Vision Control Center, a single control center (HMI) for the whole system, operators are now able to always have a perfect production and performance overview. The design has also made the line easier to use, which in turn will result in higher user efficiency.

PackSys Global: Inspection perfection and space matters

PackSys Global has developed CIM, a compact neck inspection unit for aerosol cans on the outfeed conveyor of the necking machine. While the common market solution places the inspection camera directly onto the necking machine outfeed conveyor resulting in less accurate can positioning, the new CIM compact neck inspection unit from PackSys Global is located on the transport system between the necking machine and packing station and is far superior to traditional systems and as it accommodates a dedicated handling system for the cans by stabilizing the product in position.
