ALGUS PACKAGING INTRODUCES
THE UNIVERSAL 8 (U8) PACKAGING SYSTEM
AT PACKEXPO 2011
Conceived by industry pioneer Arthur Gustafson in response to the packaging industry needs, the ergonomically sensitive Algus Universal 8 (U8) Packaging System was designed with your future success in mind. As your sales increase the revolutionary U8 is engineered to allow for in-plant reconfiguration to satisfy increased product demand and production requirements. This cost-effective system allows for different packaging formats, from simple face seal packs to complex club store packs. With the flexibility to add feeders for inserting components and vision systems for quality assurance, the U8 offers “the sky is the limit” approach to a packaging system.
The standard fully automated U8 is 72"high x 102" wide x 96" deep. The machine includes 4 open product load stations, with a 16” x 18.5” seal area. Other features of the U8 are “quick install” feeder stations for inserts, blisters and cards. The U8 has an independent electro-mechanical drive system as well as a servo driven turntable. The machine has full PLC control and a user friendly operator interface panel. Interlocked door panels on the U8 base allows for quick access to the drive system which in turn allows for quick reconfiguration of the machine in the field.
Tooling accessories include 8 product carrier nests, a blister and card magazine, a blister plug rack and profiled seal die. Quick change tooling and additional feeders are also available as options.
The Universal 8 is the next generation of rotary packaging machines. It offers you the flexibility and high production rates critical in today’s competitive packaging industry. The U8 offers these features along with Algus’ commitment to their customers that they will provide full integration services; from concept to design and from fabrication to assembly.
