Septimatech’s Automated Guide Rail System to Be Exhibited for the First Time at Pack Expo 2017

 

The Unison® Automated Guide Rail System increases efficiency in changeovers and provides complete adjustment of conveying line at your fingertips.

 

Waterloo, ON – Septimatech today announced it will be showcasing its new Unison® Automated Guide Rail System at this year’s Pack Expo, giving customers an opportunity to see first-hand how automation can streamline their production lines.

 

Unison® Automation is the ultimate Guide Rail Adjustment feature, freeing up operators and their time for other production areas. As well as improving line efficiency and reducing changeover time, this system reduces line downtime and eliminates the need    for operator tweaking or adjustment during set up and production.

 

The human-machine interface provides operators with instant information about the state of their packaging line during changeover and run time. Operators have access to a self-contained control system, with an easy to use Unison® touchscreen HMI and embedded PLC controller. Through the touchscreen, operators can perform key functions including automated changeovers, manual jogging, recipe management and teaching, maintenance, and diagnostics.

 

Each Unison® Automated Guide Rail System uses standard components custom-designed for your specific line configuration and container control needs. Reduce changeover time and improve container handling performance for greater production uptime and reliable and repeatable performance every time.

 

“Automation is the future of the packaging industry,” says Sharron Gilbert, Septimatech President and CEO. “We’re excited to show our customers how our Unison® Automated Guide Rail can transform their day-to-day production with superior line efficiency and greatly reduced changeover times.”

 

The Automated Unison® System includes safety-rated emergency stop circuitry and is designed and built to CSA, UL, and CE standards. It is easily integrated into new and existing conveying equipment with Unison® Systems by embedding into current line controls or as a stand-alone system.

 

See the Unison® Automated Guide Rail at the upcoming Pack Expo Las Vegas on September 25-27, 2017 at Booth C-4036.

Septimatech Presents New Unison® QT – Quick Turn Adjustable Guide Rail and Product Handling Control System

  • Capable of reducing changeover set-up time in seconds.
  • Return on investment in less than 5 months, depending on the application.
  • See the new Unison® QT at Pack Expo Las Vegas on September 25-27, 2017 at Booth C-4036.

 

Waterloo, ON – Septimatech today announced its new Unison® QT quick turn guide rail and product handling control system. Expanding upon the high performance modular Unison® Guide Rail System, Unison® QT helps customers reduce changeover time from hours to seconds with accurate, repeatable, fast adjustment times.

 

Customers in every segment of the packaging industry can benefit from this system. It takes seconds to incrementally adjust guide rail width by 6.25 inches (160mm) with one turn of hand wheel.  With just a quick turn of the adjustment handle, operators can uniformly set the correct Guide Rail position and lock it in place. The Unison® QT’s quick turn handle eliminates the need for individual Guide Rail adjustment, tweaking, or fine-tuning the changeover setup. 

 

Each adjuster can be customized on-site to suit exact package sizes, giving optimal line flexibility to add or remove package sizes in the future. Adjustments are incremental to position every 1/4” (6.35mm) over the entire stroke range for quick, repeatable, and reliable changeovers.

 

The Unison® QT adjuster handle can be added to a new conveyor or retrofitted on existing conveyors to create an easy to use, tool-less repeatable line adjustment system.

 

Feedback from current Unison® QT Customers has reinforced the value of this unique technology. Customers report changeover times reduced to less than 40 seconds with minimal and sustained operator training, as well as significant improvements to ergonomics, health and safety, and sustainability.

 

All Unison® products are backed by our industry-leading guarantees against component failure.

 

“The Unison® QT is an innovative solution to allow customers in the packaging industry to vastly improve their uptimes while simultaneously streamlining line management,” says Sharron Gilbert, Septimatech President and CEO. “It is our goal to continually simplify and improve changeovers for our customers, which motivated us to create this easy quick turn adjuster that has a multitude of potential applications.”

 

The Unison® Quick Turn Adjustment System can be customized to your specific application.
