Turn on UNIVERSALity!
The Universal series equipment makes it possible to produce virtually an unlimited range of plastic packaging using the positive and negative plug-assist (mechanical) forming and punching with cutting (band) dies. Thus, the plug-assist forming and the punching of plastic parts processes are performed as a single complete operation
Manufactured products: cups, jars, lids, trays, plates, chocolate trays, cake domes, salad bowls, ice-cream bowls, lunch boxes, egg trays, microcontainers, blister packages.
Used tooling: combined negative, positive-negative QMM moulds (Quick Make Mould), combined with the cutting (band) dies system using the plug-assist unit (premolding) of molded material.
Additional equipment: the Universal series can be equipped with the stacker of end products; it can be also equipped with the "optical mark" unit for forming shallow articles (lid, tray) from roll pre-printed plastic.
Maintenance staff: one operator.
Updating (June, 2010): Using of double-way feed circuits of pneumatic actuators on the basis of the modern air boxes connected according to a cost-effective scheme allowed to reduce by 23% the compressed air consumption by the thermoforming equipment in the UNIVERSAL series. New pneumatic circuits allow to save on reducing of energy consumption by compressors to several thousand Euros per year for each unit of this series.
