Infinity Machine & Engineering Corp. has responded to customer demand with the launch of its Dual Rotating Cassette C15, a casepacker module designed for higher speed industrial and facial tissue lines.

The concept was designed with the goal of increasing the speed at which the product can be loaded into the box.

The packaging machinery supplier said the design will bring “multiple benefits to its customers, including 25% – 50% faster speeds on two- and three layer formats, achieving speeds of 15cpm consistently”.

Additionally, the new design allows for better control of the product during rotation, simplified programming and a servo controlled back-stop for non-rotate configurations.

The machine is also modular so producers can easily switch to bagging and bundling depending on their orders.

Ryan Holmer, technical sales, Infinity, said: “The development was completely customer-driven after a customer asked our engineers to design a machine that can pack two- and three-layer industrial product and facial tissue at higher speeds (up to 15cpm).

 “These two- and three-layer configurations can often be limited for these product types and historically run around 8-10 cases per minute on most tissue casepackers.

“Once the request was received, our engineers went to work and designed a concept for a machine with two separate, three axis controllers, which are opposing each other on a cam.”
