46 NEW TECHNOLOGY // FALL 2016 www.PackagingDigest.com new products Pack Expo Laser-based dud detector The 2D Profiling Dud Detection system uses a laser to inspect filled food and beverage containers for complete closure application and sufficient container vacuum level to hold the closure safety button or surface down, confirming seal quality and ensuring food safety. It inspects 100% of metal, plastic or composite closures on filled containers at production line speeds. The compact unit is mounted on universal hardware that fits over existing production conveyors. It offers a color touchscreen HMI and PackML-compliant software that integrates inspection with a rejector to divert a defective container from the conveyor. It works with Tap Touch, Soft Touch, Air Touch and other diverters. The stainless steel enclosure is NEMA4X rated. Silgan Equipment, www.silganequipment.com Pack Expo Booth N-6016 High-speed, variable height labeler The L-A 6000 labeler handles variable- sized cartons and boxes at high speeds with accurate shipping information. It uses the tamp- blow method to print and apply up to 40 labels per minute to products that vary in height up to 19.68 in./500mm. A sensor initially determines the height of the approaching product to move the applicator to the correct position. This development ensures accurate placement at speeds up to 50% faster than a label printer-applicator with a pneumatically driven cylinder. The redesigned microprocessor controller is compact for easy integration onto the line. The modular construction allows easy access to components. And interchangeable dispensing heads allow the use of different size labels. Using print engines from Zebra or Sato, the L-A 6000 can print thermal-transfer or direct thermal-print labels. Weber Packaging Solutions, www.weberpackaging.com Pack Expo Booth S-3541 Sanitary conveyor belts The Habasit Saniclip is an innovative rod retention system that makes belt assembly and disassembly possible in only seconds with no tools to speed conveyor belt opening and enable easier than ever belt sanitation. In short, it helps reduce downtime. Allowing for simple rod installation/removal for applications where frequent belt sanitation is required, the Saniclip has a tactile, non-slip surface for easy removal in wet and/or fatty environments. Multiple Saniclips can be installed on a single belt to allow for easy opening in several locations.
