Automatically Produce Stretch Pak Packages

Starview FASP automated rotary type Stretch Pak machines are ideal for high-volume and just-in-time (JIT) production. Given the proper conditions, these machines are capable of up to 16 cycles per minute in production. The Automated Stretch Pak machines are built with the capability to feed cards, form cavities, fold over cards, radio-frequency (RF) seal cards and unload finished packages. With 3 open loading stations, these machines are ideal for hand placed or automated product loading or where multiple items are to be placed in a single package.

An accurate cam drive indexer is used for precision sealing/forming fixture position repeatability. Fixture advancement speed is adjustable. The time interval at which the fixtures index is also adjustable to pace the operators who load products as they pass the open stations. Stretch Pak cards are fed from easily-loaded quick-change feeder magazines. Forming, fold-over, and RF welding cycles are automatic and controlled by the PLC. Finished packages are automatically transferred from the machine to a conveyor with a linear transfer pick and place unit where they travel through the heated air knife. An optional inline slitter is available to separate cost-efficient gang-run cards.

All FASP Series machines feature automatic system start-up where the stations are turned on at the appropriate interval and an automatic system clear that deactivates the stations in the reverse order. This saves manually turning on each function until all sealing/forming fixtures are filled.
