Wexxar Bel Brings High Speed Case Forming and Labeling, All in One Solution to PACK EXPO 2023Aug 04, 2023
RICHMOND, British Columbia, August 4, 2023 – Looking for high speed case forming and labeling all in one efficient solution? Then be sure to add Wexxar Bel to your PACK EXPO 2023 itinerary! The new WLF30T Fully Automatic Case Former, which combines high speed case forming with labeling, will be showcased at booth C-3825 at PACK EXPO 2023, Sept. 11-13, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.
The WLF30T incorporates a labeling system from its sister ProMach brand, EPI Labeling. This partnership gives customers the ability to label cases prior to formation at speeds of up to 30 cases per minute. The ability to label the case prior to packing is ideal, particularly for food applications where the case may be going to a cold room after forming. That’s because labeling the case before forming ensures the label is properly adhered and allows the machinery to operate outside the wet or cold area.
“Where the WLF30T really proves its worth is in cold storage food applications because it enables customers to label the case before its formed,” said Sander Smith, Product Manager, Wexxar Bel. “What’s unique about the WLF30T is that it merges fast case forming and labeling all housed within one unit. It’s a strong combination we’re bringing to market.”
The WLF is based on Wexxar Bel’s reliable WF30 platform with an easy-load bottom pick magazine. It is integrated with an EPI M2 labeler that is located inside the magazine section of the machine, a design that both protects the labeler behind clear Lexan glass doors while also saving valuable floor space. Accessing the labeler is fast and convenient as it easily slides out of the machine for maintenance or reloading labels.
As blank cases slide into position, the EPI M2 applies the label; the EPI M2 can be programmed to apply the label at any location on the case. The magazine accepts up to three bundles of cases, totaling about 75 cases depending on thickness. The cases never stop during labeling, providing an uninterrupted smooth flow through the machine. After the label is applied, cases are tipped up and handled by Wexxar’s patented Pin & Dome technology to open the case. Flaps are folded and sealed with a Dekka tape head, and the case advances forward ready to be filled. Features and benefits of the new WLF30T Fully Automatic Case Former include:
WISE system with HMI controls
Color-coded change handles and textless instructions for easy case changeover
Quick and easy case loading even while the machine is in operation
Available in tape or hot melt
Modular design for greater machine reliability and less maintenance
Engineered for IP65 specifications for use in dusty or damp environments
