The ASW ERGON range has different models of compact shrink wrappers with single lane 90º product infeed, suitable for making packs in film only, cardboard pad + film, cardboard tray, cardboard tray + film.
The ASW shrink wrappers are suitable to pack a wide range of cylindrical, oval or square/rectangular containers at a speed of max. 80 packs/minute, according to the machine model and the type of product to be processed.
The models of this series stand out for their compact structure that is easily adapted to the logistic end of line conditions and for fast and easy changeover, thanks to the single-lane infeed.

1A system with a single-lane infeed facilitates the correct laning of the loose containers on the conveyor. In the section where the pack format is formed, a group of dividing bars group the containers in a linear and continuous way; in this section a twin belt system separates the products through an electronic cam according to the format to be processed.
2Then, thanks to the rotating infeed, loose products are pushed by the single lane conveyor to the multi-lane conveyor. In P and T models, a corrugated cardboard pad or blank is picked from the blank magazine (placed underneath the infeed conveyor), by a rotary picker composed of two groups of electrical vacuum suction cups. The pad or the blank moves along the cardboard ramp and places itself underneath the group of products in transit with the long side leading. The tray former operates in continuous motion.
3In the tray former, special mechanical devices fold the blank's front and rear flaps. The side flaps are sprayed with hot melt glue and then folded, thus forming the tray. The unwinding of the film is controlled by brushless motors (one for each reel), that ensure the precise and continuous adjustment of the film tensioning.
4The film tensioning is controlled by a piston. When the operating film reel is over, a manual sealing bar joins the films. Before the pack enters the shrink tunnel, the film is cut by a knife blade controlled by direct-drive brushless motor, wrapped around the group of containers and overlapped on the bottom of the pack.
The Easy-Open system can be installed both on the SK shrinkwrappers and on the CM combined packers. It consists of a device piercing the film during the cutting operation, in order to create the required mark.
It can pierce two types of marks, “I”-shaped and “H”-shaped, and is available both for single and double lane production. Thanks to the Easy Open system, the customer’s level of satisfaction is definitely improved, because of the easier opening of the pack.
Moreover, this application does not require any specific packaging materials and, therefore, allows to obtain eye-catching packs without additional costs.
