Join Benchmark, Kleenline and Southern at Booth #C-3425
STATHAM, GA., September 2, 2019 – Benchmark, Kleenline and Southern will display a range of innovative solutions for food and non-food manufacturers at Pack Expo 2019. Join us September 23-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Booth #C-3425.
Of the numerous packaging solutions at Pack Expo, Benchmark will be displaying its industry-leading InFlight FT Loader, a truly non-contact feeder ideal for high-speed continuous motion loading of products that cannot be backlogged and sticky or fragile products. This automatic wrapper infeed includes a floating nose allowing the system to absorb surges and close gaps in product that a multiple belt feeder cannot accomplish. A floating belt-to-belt transition is used to time randomly spaced product directly into the receiving flights of either a horizontal wrapper or cartoner at speeds up to 500 ppm. The Inflight FT also offers an operator-friendly experience with easy-to-use software and diagnostics accessed through touchscreen, minimizing changeovers and downtime.
Benchmark’s Kleenline product line will be featuring its sanitary product handling solutions including an integrated conveyor system equipped with two high-speed reciprocators to demonstrate product distribution from a single lane to multiple rows or from multiple rows to a single lane. Reciprocators can distribute a single lane across a wider belt for entry to a freezer or oven infeed or can take rows discharged from your process equipment and send a single lane of randomly spaced product to your wrapper or primary packaging system. Kleenline’s product handling solutions at Pack Expo 2019 will utilize integrated conveyor systems equipped with Intralox Activated Roller Belts (ABR) 90-Degree Transfer S400 as Benchmark and Intralox recently announced a new license agreement. Kleenline’s system provides uniform product distribution and fast cycle times to deliver the ideal solution for achieving optimum efficiency in packaging lines.
Benchmark’s Southern product line, including the iconic PowerPouch Intermittent Motion Packager, will also be on display. This versatile horizontal form-fill-seal pouch packaging machine is designed to enhance efficiency and productivity in any packaging environment. Southern will be displaying a PowerPouch IM 7-16 machine producing 4-sided pouches from rollstock. Pouches will be filled from a servo auger filler integrated into the pouch machine controls, resulting in a single operator interface.
