The Unison® Automated Guide Rail System increases efficiency in changeovers and provides complete adjustment of conveying line at your fingertips.

Automation is the future of the packaging industry. - Sharron Gilbert

Septimatech today announced it will be showcasing its new Unison® Automated Guide Rail System at this year’s Pack Expo, giving customers an opportunity to see first-hand how automation can streamline their production lines.

Unison® Automation is the ultimate Guide Rail Adjustment feature, freeing up operators and their time for other production areas. As well as improving line efficiency and reducing changeover time, this system reduces line downtime and eliminates the need for operator tweaking or adjustment during set up and production.

The human-machine interface provides operators with instant information about the state of their packaging line during changeover and run time. Operators have access to a self-contained control system, with an easy to use Unison® touchscreen HMI and embedded PLC controller. Through the touchscreen, operators can perform key functions including automated changeovers, manual jogging, recipe management and teaching, maintenance, and diagnostics.

Each Unison® Automated Guide Rail System uses standard components custom-designed for your specific line configuration and container control needs. Reduce changeover time and improve container handling performance for greater production uptime and reliable and repeatable performance every time.

“Automation is the future of the packaging industry,” says Sharron Gilbert, Septimatech President and CEO. “We’re excited to show our customers how our Unison® Automated Guide Rail can transform their day-to-day production with superior line efficiency and greatly reduced changeover times.”

The Automated Unison® System includes safety-rated emergency stop circuitry and is designed and built to CSA, UL, and CE standards. It is easily integrated into new and existing Unison® Systems by embedding into current line controls or as a stand-alone system.

See the Unison® Automated Guide Rail at the upcoming Pack Expo Las Vegas on September 25-27, 2017 at Booth C-4036.
