The S 3500 Flex is a tray sealer cased with stainless steel and plexiglass that allows a change of format in less than two minutes thanks to a carrousel equipped with 4 toolings on board.
In production, it is possible to preheat the following toolings to shorten the time format changes.
The change of inferior toolings is also optimized by the presence of a tank mounted on a slide. Just pull it like a drawer to get access to the tooling. The weight to manipulate is reduced and it facilitates the work of the operator.
CHANGE OF FORMAT IN LESS THAN 2 MINUTES
With these optimizations, the change of format on the S 3500 is done in 2 minutes while it takes 15 minutes on a standard tray sealer.
Over a period of 4 hours with a rate of 2 format changes, the gross 88% OEE on a standard tray sealer rises to 99% on the S 3500 Flex. In “Vacuum and Gas” mode, the S 3500 Flex reached a rate of 1390 sealed trays per hour.
In the configuration of an integrated tray sealer – weigh price labelling module, the workstation has been designed so that a single operator can manage the flow of input and output trays.
Its stainless and plexiglass provides an easy to use and safe workspace for the operator.
Accessibility is also an asset of the S 3500 Flex: easy access to toolings; a storage unit for the down toolings is integrated to the machine; all casings can be opened, thereby facilitating maintenance and cleaning.
