Wokingham, England (PRWEB) September 29, 2007
A new Website, http://www.versapack.co.uk, has been established to support a newly-developed compact case packing and erecting machine. Versapack is a joint venture between Quin Systems and Endoline, and is capable of handling 100 picks and 20 cases per minute.
As well as product information and specifications, the new site provides technical drawings, CAD views and a 3D model of the machine. Visitors can view the packaging machine from any angle or perspective, zoom-in on areas of interest and save the model in a cross-platform format. Although Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher is required to view this eDrawings file, it can be viewed on other browsers if configured correctly.
In addition, there are links to the two companies' Web sites, and a contact form enables visitors to enquire further.
Combining Quin Systems' revolutionary RTheta™ high-speed picking head with Endoline's 220 series of case erectors, the new Versapack provides a complete, versatile end-of-line packaging solution inside a small 1800 x 1750mm footprint. It provides new options for high-speed case packing where automation has not hitherto been possible or economic.
The principle of Versapack is simple: an Endoline 220 series case erector frame is used to mount the Quin Casepacker picking head and a product feed conveyor, which results in the extremely compact footprint. Already installed in five production lines in the UK, Casepacker is proving the ideal choice for both single-player and more-demanding multi-layer applications. Its RTheta technology minimises inertia, enabling fast cycle speeds, whilst Quin's advanced motion control algorithms ensure smoother movement, resulting in less product damage, however fast the machine operates.
Versapack offers installers a flexible choice of layout options, from straight in-line, through 90-degree, to reverse case flow, with infeed module options available for rigid and flexible packs. Its versatile design allows a wide range of product types to be packed including shelf-ready packages. Applications range from roll-wrapped biscuits, through flow-wrapped wet-wipes to cartoned ready meals.
The Versapack is marketed in the UK directly by Quin and Endoline, with international sales handled through the companies' European and world-wide distribution networks.
