OPTX™ shrink wrap systems offer exceptional performance and the best finished package appearance and durability available. Simplicity is the backbone of this platform, consistently producing high productivity from the machine and the personnel who operate and maintain it. OPTX offers a full spectrum of innovative features that maximize speed, reliability and flexibility – ideal for beverage and food industries.


Design investments achieved best-in-class combinations of high performance and elegant simplicity. OPTX offers more.


Speeds

  • OPTX SPS-80: up to 80 cycles per minute

  • OPTX SPS-105: up to 105 cycles per minute


  • Tray/shrink solutions and optional film-only or pad capability

  • Single stream with optional multi-stream capability

  • 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 rangeflexibility, 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 & 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
