Waterloo, ON – Septimatech announced today its new rapid change Multi-Lane Adjustment System for simply adjusting multiple packaging lanes without changing parts, using lane spacers, or heavy lifting equipment. With Septimatech’s Multi-Lane Adjustment System one person can simultaneously adjust up to a 30 ft(9m) section of lanes from one location, including all straight sections. Typically, a similar section would take two people 35-50 minutes to changeover. The Multi-Lane Adjustment System allows one person to changeover a similar section in less than five minutes without tools.
The Multi-Lane Adjustment System is suitable for a wide variety of packaging applications where multiple lanes are required. Changes are accurate and repeatable with precise tolerances to improve container handling. Container funneling can be adjusted from a maximum of four lanes to one. Minor adjustments during production runs for container variances are quick, simple and accurate. Intuitive wheel operation and settings readout is simple to use and learn.
Septimatech’s Multi-Lane Adjustment System is easily adaptable to existing or new equipment. Ergonomics and safety are improved. The elimination of change parts, lane spacers and heavy lifting equipment frees up valuable plant space and operator time for other production needs.
“Our Multi-Lane Adjustment System provides an excellent return on investment in reduced labor and increased efficiency for customers running multiple containers on lines with multiple lanes,” said Sharron Gilbert, Septimatech President and CEO. “Septimatech is redefining the way customers manage machine and line changeovers and improve container handling. With all our solutions, the goal is to simplify operations and improve performance making changes repeatable, accurate and adjustable to customer needs.”
