  • Rotech Launches New RF-Lite Sleeve Coding System
    product ranges and smaller batches only exacerbates the problem Date marking must be legible indelible and conspicuous since it is an offence for retailers to sell food after the use by date The RF Lite is a simple low cost solution that overcomes all these challenges The system takes flat cardboard sleeves from a hopper feeds them through an inkjet printer so they can be date coded and stacks them again ready for use For example the use of thinner lighter sleeve materials is not a problem for the RF Lite The sleeves are stacked vertically in a hopper where friction wheels separate them and feed them one by one to the inkjet printer This would not be possible using a conventional push or shuttle feed mechanism which only works with thick stiff materials The RF Lite can also handle sleeve shapes and sizes ranging anywhere from 40x70mm to 300x200mm It only takes a few seconds to swap between sizes by adjusting the size of the hop per This involves loosening a screw making the adjustment and tightening it back up all without the need for any special tools or training The RF Lite s linear speed is 60m s which means it can handle just under 200 300mm sleeves per minute or around 250 sleeves at 200mm In addition the RF Lite is easy to buy easy to set up and easy to use bringing the benefits of au tomated date marking within the reach of many food manufacturers for the first time It s easy to buy thanks to its low upfront cost Supplied complete with an inkjet printer the entire stack to stack system comes in at under 5000 The investment is also very low risk thanks to Ro tech s money back guarantee and replacement service

  • Piovan Size Reduction Solutions For The Packaging Industry
    this quality the regrind in addition to being irregular will also have a higher dust content and will therefore be more difficult to process Innovative design and manufacturing methodologies put the new Piovan granulators a step ahead of current solutions available in the market The cutting chamber is made from machined pieces which are then assembled rather than being cast or welded This design has enabled the construction of high precision components that improve the efficiency of the cut and the quality of the ground product while improving the life of the granulator as worn pieces can be replaced Another distinctive feature of the Piovan granulators is the possibility for customisation Even the most basic versions can be modified to suit the specific needs of the process e g blow moulding extrusion injection and to comply with specific customer requests in terms of space granulator loading and unloading requirements and protection of the operating environment these machines also guarantee extremely low noise levels N35 60 the state of the art granulator One of the very distinctive models of the new Piovan range of granulators is the N35 60 a machine encompassing all of the characteristics described above in addition to featuring a 90 adjustable hopper for 4 loading positions ensuring that if fed by conveyor belt the direction of the belt can always suit the granulator hopper inlet Maintenance is therefore simplified and less operating space is required Fast access to the machine is another important factor given that in certain operating conditions cleaning operations may be necessary on a daily basis This feature is a response to a specific request by numerous users who need to insert the granulators at the end of production lines where space is often limited N35 60 is part of a family of three granulators designed specifically to process large pieces or such as injection moulded food containers large bottles or cans blow moulding tanks bins rotational moulding process These objects are normally quite large and light and can therefore bounce and be difficult to cut Single shaft shredders the complementarity of a product Complementing the range of granulators is the single shaft shredder line perfect for recovering purgings from start ups or material replacements during all transformation processes To make an example if we consider a facility with 200 moulded items equipped with 30 presses in one year they may need to change moulds 600 times each time the injection unit needs to be purged The weight of an average purging from 2 to 4 kilos multiplied by the number of mould changes produces numerous tonnes of engineering polymers that can be recovered with a shredder Shredders are machines whose role partially overlaps that of granulators and sometimes even integrates their function At times to granulate and recover medium to large sized waste it may be more convenient to use a shredder rather than a large sized granulator Granulated waste can then be ground by smaller and more economical granulators With the same
