Gearless Paper Bag Making Machine - Sun Master 541

Sun Master 541

The paper bag making machine Sun Master 541 was developed based on Curioni Sun Teramo long established experience. It represents a further evolution of the gearless machine and has been designed to manufacture square bottom paper bags with twisted handles, from the medium up to the biggest formats. As an alternative the machine can be equipped with flat handle making unit or both twisted and flat handle.
The Sun Master 541 is the only square bottom paper bag making machine, fed by a reel, completely realized with GEARLESS TECHNOLOGY, that means driven by electronically controlled brushless motors.

The machine is equipped with an handle making unit for the manufacture and application of twisted paper cord handles which is in line with the paper bag making machine (international Patent).

This solution gives many advantages as for example a reduction of the overall machine dimension, easy control and operation and a very simple and reliable handle application system to the web. The bag bottom formation is achieved through a flat section of the machine, instead of the usual drum, granting the operator an immediate accessibility and control of the machine operation, best comfort and easiness and speed-up in the changeover, thanks also to the possibility to prepare the new bag size outside the machine.

Most of changeover operations of the Sun Master 541 are fully automatic thanks to the electronic control of motors through a PC.

The presence of a touch screen digital display allows to choose the type of size to be produced and the machine sets up automatically for the new paper bag sizes.

The positioning of the handle making unit, the handle application and pressure unit, the paper bag pre-cuts unit, the whole paper tube formation unit, the transport, cutting and separating unit, the paper bag bottom opening unit, the paper bag bottom gluing system in case the version with extrusion guns is chosen, the paper bag bottom closing unit is completely automatic.
The presence of the modem connected to the PC allows to achieve the remote service through the telephone network.

Top productivity and flexibility are the result of these new technologies which Curioni Sun Teramo has developed and placed at the disposal of your company.

illig Form Fill Seal Line - FSL 48

The new FSL 48 picks up from the proven FFS line technology embodied in the smaller FS 37 size model. Innovations introduced at the equipment and design level mainly reflect the demands of the dairy industry, where hygienic filling is a key theme. Accordingly, all components of this machine are made of stainless steel. Moreover, its multi-track filling unit (newly developed for the FSL 48 as well) is designed to provide CIP (cleaning in place) and SIP (sterilization in place), making the system generally suitable for aseptic filling.

Hygienic filling
The hygiene levels supported by this machine range from thermoforming with sterile air to a configuration with all-enclosed filling section (also available with CIP/SIP) and an optional sterilization of lid foil by UV irradiation. Where no central sterilization facility is available in-house, a so-called sterilization module can be optionally attached directly to the machine to generate sterile air and hot steam while also providing peroxide spraying for the filling tunnel. The system's filling and packaging performance reliably conforms to diverse standards up to VDMA Hygiene Class IV for hygienic filling machines. 

All stations on the FSL 48 feature state-of-the-art servomotors. A motion control system coordinates machine movements and displacement paths to provide high operating speeds. These controlled sequences result in a very smooth operation of the line, so that even highly liquid products can be filled into single-serve packs at rates exceeding 30 cycles/minute without product overspilling onto the sealing rim. 

Automatic repositioning systems at the form, seal and punch stations ensure uniform sealing rims on all containers.

The format surface area of the new FSL 48 has been enlarged from that of its FS 37 predecessor. With a size of 480 mm x 320 mm (or up to 350 mm in the case of non-decorated articles), it enables the output of one complete cycle – e.g., 12 standard curd cheese packs – to fit into a carton compatible with the Euro pallet module. The format surface area is adaptable to accommodate single or dual cups, or 4- or 6-cup trays. Thanks to the multi-track filling unit, cups can be filled with up to eight different products at the same time.

The new FSL 48 can process all customary sheet stock suitable for FFS lines, e.g., PS, PP, multilayer materials (e.g., PS/EVOH/PE), APET, and even stock made of PLA (polylactide) biopolymers. The same applies to the heat-sealable lid material.

IML: Brilliant decoration of diverse cup geometries
The in-mold labeling (IML) unit developed for the FSL 48 uses printed labels supplied from a magazine. These are placed into the mold cavity and become integral with the cup wall in the subsequent thermoforming cycle. The mold is of tilting design to allow outputs of up to 30 cycles/minute to be achieved despite this additional process step. The footprint of the IML device is not larger than that of a conventional banding unit. 

Since the IML decorating technology does not require vertical container walls, it provides the additional benefit of supporting a broad diversity of cup shapes. This ability to accommodate distinctive cup designs in conjunction with eye-catching labels goes a long way towards enhancing the product's POS appeal on the supermarket shelf.

The IML process opens up a broad range of cup decorating options – from one-sided, two-sided or three-sided (e.g., U-shaped) to four- or even five-sided (including bottom decoration, e.g., with an integrated bar code) designs – to combine high visual appeal with superior functionality. Depending on the cup material, the technology supports matching PP, PS or paper labels.

Upgradable into a full-size production line
Apart from the machine version with integrated IML unit (FSL 48 model), the basic machine is also available in its FS 48 standard form for thermoforming, filling and sealing single-serve packs or other non-decorated foodstuff containers. 

Any configuration of this FFS machine – whether FS 48 or FSL 48 – can be combined with a carton packer adapted to its output capacity. The packer, which is also servomotor-driven, features an automatic carton erector and can handle any kind of carton, from trays to open-top to wraparound types.

Breyer Develops Lithium-Ion Battery film line equipment

For the complete production of powerful LI-ION Batteries a number of technologies and process steps are required.

One core part is the manufacturing of the electrodes (cathodes, anodes). This electrode manufacturing process requires the production steps slurry mixing, coating, evaporation, drying, compressing resp. calendering and slitting.

During the process of calendering, increasing of power density, optimized electron transport and enhanced contact between particles are necessary properties which must be achieved. Breyer has so far concentrated on the calendering process in this production chain. The equipment for calendering includes the unwinding for the coated substrate, the calendering resp. compressing system as well as the winder for the processed electrodes.

The required extreme low tolerances in the calendering process is a challenge for the calender itself. The long-term experience of Breyer in the area of calender manufacturing enabled Breyer to develop an sophisticated calender system, allowing extreme huge line pressures with a special gap measuring and adjustment system in order to fulfil the high requirements in precision of the electrode manufacturing. The accurate and solid calendering system allows extremly low thickness tolerances. The system is equipped with a colour touch screen for adjustment and operating.

The new generation of this calender equipment represents a further milestone in improving the process of LI-ION Battery manufacturing.

In Breyer premises a pilot line (production size) is ready for demonstration and function test.
