Simplicity is the backbone of this platform, making it a shrink bundler that simply performs. OPTX offers a full spectrum of innovative features that maximize speed and easily accommodate large size ranges and pack patterns ideal for the food and beverage industries.
Simplified maintenance and operation provides less downtime, reduced demand on your workforce, increased productivity, optimized performance and enhanced package quality.
OPTX M-80: up to 80 cycles per minute
OPTX M-105: up to 105 cycles per minute
Reduce packaging material costs by eliminating or minimizing corrugate use
Film-only shrink wrap solutions for single or multiple lane production
Pad or u-board solutions available
Simple and repeatable changeovers
Side mounted film stand assures proper ergonomics and adds convenience for film loading and splicing
Flexible servo driven wrapping wand provides exceptional film control
Shrink tunnels utilizing XACT 360™ Air Control Technology are engineered using computational fluid dynamics, providing laminar air flow and balanced heat distribution that results in optimal durability and visual appeal for every package.
Film cutting efficiency is designed in delivering operation tolerance and simplicity
Reduced occurrence of uncut film and film transfer issues through the cutter
Film cutting tension assured by proprietary single nip roller and vacuum table designs with edge-to edge film control; reduces missed cuts due to tension loss that can occur in designs with dual nip rollers
Vacuum table provides positive film transfer and control, eliminating the second nip roller and related setup and film transfer issues
High-speed cutting motion provides consistency, tolerance against film variations, and optimized full-sleeve application
Automatic Film Splicing
Servo Driven Wrapping Wands with removable wrapping tracks
Electric or gas powered shrink tunnels
Smartrak Infeed Design
OPTX provides the simplicity and control that operators and maintenance personnel desire.
OPTX metering systems handle round containers and square shaped products including cartons and bundles with simple changeover. Solutions include the innovative variable path robotic metering, offering both simplicity and flexibility over conventional pin metering systems, and the Douglas Slipstream pinless metering system with years of proven performance.
Optimizing product stability and size range flexibility, full width conveyors span the grouping section.
For efficient transfer of product groups to sweep bars, acceleration of product groupings is controlled.
Unmatched visual and physical access is provided for changeover and routine operation, a result of having no roller chains under the product, no individual lane transport chains and adjustments, and overhead supported lane guides requiring no disassembly. Also, maintenance is reduced and access to tray feeding is free of obstructions.
Variable Path Robotic Metering
Intuitive operation physically registers leading edge of product groups and controls group separation from incoming flow.
Recipe setting of product group length and controlled separation
Dual overhead pin bars register and release product groups of round products
A simple change to straight bars and recipe control of a variable position transfer point positively meters groups of cartons, bundles and square cornered containers
Changeover is simplified with open access to 2 registration bars, unobstructed lane guide adjustments, and recipe selection
Slipstream™ Pinless Metering
Incorporating slip sheet methodology and technologies managing incoming line pressures, Slipstream metering is proven to perform.
Adept for metering and grouping all product types and shapes with minimal or even no change parts
Nested product flow through infeed and product metering reduces the number of lane guides and changeover
For soft PET bottle applications such as water, the nested product flow, low line pressure and pinless design excels at running soft compressible containers
Accurate product registration across all lanes via servo controlled metering conveyors, slip sheet controlled group length and separation, and metering bars control of group tightness for precise delivery to tray loading
Tray/Pad Feeding and Pack Forming
Ergonomic operator side magazine loading
Balanced orbital tray feeder motion is engineered for high-speed performance, while the cantilevered design offers open access and fewer parts to maintain
Simplified tray feeder and metering system designs enable lower machine elevation and ease of access
Seamless merging and loading provides precise control of both product and corrugated materials
