Serpa, a secondary packaging solutions manufacturer, will exhibit its newly redesigned P150 Intermittent Beverage Cartoner at booth N-5548 at PACK EXPO 2022, October 23-26, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The P150 takes Serpa’s proven intermittent motion technology that is primarily used in packaging pharmaceuticals and modifies it to accurately and efficiently fill and seal cartons of canned or bottled beverages. This machine features nine configuration options, including options for slim canned beverages such as hard seltzers. Maintenance-friendly changeover between these settings takes less than 10 minutes and does not require tools.
Other features and benefits of the P150 include:
- 300 cans processed per minute
- Balcony design with walk-in access
- Low maintenance with easy access to all main components
- Preventative maintenance program in HMI and Serpa Servo Smart Torque
- Outboard belt drive for lower noise and longer life
- Compact footprint
- Hygienic design with no product catch
- Ergonomic Design – 18” maximum reach points
- Stainless steel washdown construction with NEMA 4X available
- Positive carton erecting with prebreak
PACK EXPO attendees will have the opportunity to view a live demonstration of the P150 loading prefilled cans into cartons. In addition to displaying the machine’s capabilities, this demonstration will exhibit cooperation between ProMach brands. The cans in use will be filled and sealed by Techniblend. A CL&D machine will manufacture the plastic shrink wraps, which a solution from Axon will then seal to the can. Finally, after Serpa’s P150 has sorted the cans into cartons, a large shrink wrapper from Texwrap will prepare cases for shipping.
This fully functional integrated packaging line is a great example of ProMach bringing its product brands closer together to better meet the needs of its customers. Projects like this allow customers to have one central point of contact, and that contact really serves as a one-stop, full-service provider by connecting all the ProMach brands together. This level of project management greatly streamlines the planning process, installation, and start-up curve for packaging lines.
Forty-five packaging and automation-focused companies comprise the ProMach family of product brands in categories including Systems & Integration, Filling, Bottling & Capping, Decorative Labeling, Flexibles & Trays, Handling & Sterilization, Labeling & Coding, Robotics & End of Line, and Pharma.
