ALPS (Air Logic Power Systems) of USA, leaders in in-line container leak inspection equipment, have appointed HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies as their sales representative in Oceania.
ALPS has 30+ years experience and are a recognised market leader with an installed base of more than 1,600 machines which includes high speed, multiple station Rotary machines to simple, single-station Linear testers and integrated models. Their machines ensure the integrity of more than 50 billion containers per year globally.
Their flagship machine is the NexGen Rotary Container Leak Inspection system. It performs a functional test of container and seal integrity and their latest model – the NexGen Rotary 30 is unique as its output per station is capable of up to 1200 BPM (72,000 BPH). This has increased the throughput from previous models by 25% while providing a greater level of leak test sensitivity.
Containers are fed single file, via a tabletop or air conveyor, into the timing screw and infeed starwheel. Each container is individually pressurized and leak tested during its travel around the turntable and returned to the conveyor by the exit starwheel. Rejected containers are ejected by a speed compensated air reject mechanism.
The colour touch screen pad has selectable languages and visual displays and provides detailed leak test data per station. Part changeover takes only 10 -15min, with a quick- lock, no- tool change parts requiring no test or alignment.
