– Rice Packaging Inc., Ellington CT, installs the innovative PPCTS DGM SMARTFOLD
1100SL ULTRA X Folder Gluer for folding cartons production. The SMARTFOLD 1100SL
ULTRA X was put into production in late November 2017 and has given Rice the
high speed folding and gluing
production combined with fast job changeover.
SMARTFOLD 1100SL ULTRA X includes motorized job/memory recall carriers for fast
job changeover, an extra length pre-folding section with
tilting upper carrier frame, an extra length "universal crash-lock
multi-function section" with integrated "bump & turn" and carton aligner, left &
right 6 corner folding, as well as an extra length final folding section with
drop down lower and lifting upper center carriers.
SMARTFOLD 1100SL ULTRA X is powered with a multiple servo drive system for
precise carton compression section shingle control through inching, production,
acceleration and deceleration speed changes, as well as an innovative high-speed
servo back folding system which allows minimal carton separation that increases
production throughput of 4 and 6 corner cartons at lower belt speeds. The
electrical/electronics design is based on non-proprietary technology for easy
machine servicing, including remote diagnostics capabilities.
SMARTFOLD 1100SL ULTRA X is a technology advanced, affordable, cost effective,
state of the art solution for the folding and gluing needs of today's converter
and market demands.
