Tray-sealing specialist Proseal has launched a tray-positioning system that calculates the required tray spacing set-up parameters for individual tray sealing tool-sets, eliminating the trial-and-error usually associated with this process.
The new patent-pending ProPosition feature automatically identifies the best position for trays, to ensure the perfect alignment every time. Its advanced technology provides food manufacturers and processors with a simple one-step tool-set-up, and removes the time consuming and potentially wasteful process of running test trays through the tray sealer to ascertain the best position. Instead operators are guided through the set-up via easy-to-follow animated instructions on the machine’s touch screen.
The system then permanently saves the relevant parameters for each tool, which greatly speeds up product changeovers and avoids operator errors during set-up.
ProPosition is fitted as standard to all new Proseal GT platform machines. Additionally, as part of Proseal’s ongoing strategy of future-proofing its equipment, the software can be retrofitted to any pre-existing machines which have the suffix GTe and GTs.
“The new ProPosition system showcases our incredible engineering innovation and underlines Proseal’s commitment to being at the forefront of product development and innovation,” comments Paul Watkin, Proseal Systems Development Manager. “This pioneering technology helps to minimize downtime, reduce errors and minimize waste to deliver valuable cost savings that will deliver a fast return on investment.”
Founded in 1998, Proseal designs and manufactures high quality tray sealing machines, conveyor systems and sealing tools for food industry markets worldwide. Proseal is part of the JBT family, and together they remain committed to continually supporting customers’ needs.
