Kliklok-Woodman's Celox cartoner
“They talked and we listened,” notes Brett Duernberger, director of sales. “Food processors said that when it came to cartoners, they wanted a superior, dependable design. So we developed our new Celox accordingly.
“It features an improved rotary feeder with servo profiling, a robust hybrid frame that provides outstanding access and sanitation, an ancillary device rail-mount system, reliable controls and superior-quality components.”
Duernberger says food processors also have voiced interest in equipment that quickly and easily adjusts for changing products and workforces. In response, Kliklok-Wood gave the Celox a modular design for quick assembly and custom configuration as well as advanced motion control for quick size changeovers. The machine also features an easy-to-use, icon-based Insight® color touch screen operator interface, which eliminates language barriers.
The Celox features an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix control system, housed in the unit’s heavy-duty fully welded stainless steel frame. Other components include a powered carton hopper, a patented, servo-driven rotary carton feeder and a barrel-cam product inserter.
“Development of the CELOX began with food processors,” Duernberger concludes. “They talked, we listened and now we’re delivering.”
