Xiamen Gachn Technology
Xiamen Gachn Technology will present the GM-085N diaper counting stack at CIDPEX. The machine is applied in diaper counting and stacking with stabilized speed and high efficiency. It is capable of counting and stacking products in different specifications. It can count and stack 10-45 pieces per minute and is designed to run at 600-650 pieces per minute. Its full servo driving system ensures the accuracy of counting and stacking and simplifies the process of changing its configuration by stacking the products from overlapping and lying pieces.
Also on display will be the full servo baby diaper fabricated bag packaging machine which can adopt servo systems, and completes the production processes of pressing, opening, feeding, sealing automatically – which greatly reduces the labor cost.
Main technical parameters include:
- Packaging speed: max designed speed 50 bags/min, stable at 45bags/min
- Packaging dimension: 150~400mm
- Film material: PE and composite materials
- Packaging method: via Rolling film tape or prefabricated bags
ITW Dynatec will be displaying three new technologies at CIDPEX this year.
The UltraLink applicator platform is the first high-speed modular applicator platform that provides increased pattern flexibility and decreases the total cost of ownership (spare parts inventory, maintenance time and product life span). A portion of the technology (Ultra Strand Coating System) was a finalist for the IDEA16 Achievement Awards. ITW’s Velocity metering platform is an innovative high-speed technology that greatly increases the accuracy of glue application and when used in conjunction with Ultra achieves even greater savings. Meanwhile, Simplicity: 2017 Innovation for Packaging applications is specially designed to be simple to install, use, and maintain.
NDC Spray Coating System
NDC provides equipment for the nonwovens industry in personal care, medical and furniture applications under a wide range of complete systems - including coaters, hot melting systems as well as gluing solutions. The RISE Series Melter will be the key equipment to be presented at CIDPEX. RISE Series Melter provides full control and operation for hot melt machines by being equipped with a user-friendly Siemens PLC control system. Furthermore, the melting tank with cast in heating can substantially reduce carbonation. The melter is equipped with a large capacity and a high density filter, which help in the improvement of precision degree in filtration and prolongs its service life.
Finally, by facilitating a high power electrical connector, it greatly improves safety and the reliability of the connector and communication.
A variety of 4L, 10L, 18L, 25L, 50L, 100L, 200L, 400L tanks are optional based on clients’ request.
From entry level to high performance, Optima offers packaging machines for nonwoven products tailored to all kind of needs. At CIDPEX, Optima will present several machines on a three-dimensional screen. The Optima DS1 is the entry level to fully automatic packaging of baby diapers at a low investment cost. The three semi-automatic packaging stations can later be expanded to a fully automatic packaging system. With the PAKSIS D5, designed and manufactured in cooperation with Fameccanica Data S.p.A., it is possible to simultaneously operate a fully-automatic packaging machine and two semi-automatic packaging stations for more production flexibility.
Optima also presents an entry level option to the fully-automatic packaging of femcare products such as sanitary napkins and panty shields. The OPTIMA TB300 has a compact design, excellent accessibility and a bag maker for side-gusseted bags from the roll that provides a fast start-up for high quality packaging. Producing small packages at high output, the OPTIMA HS1 OS1 stands-out due to its reliability and wide variety of packaging format selections.
High performance packaging lines by Optima Nonwovens offer leading-edge technologies.
