ARIES Packaging recently sold a high speed ARIES sleever machine to a major dairy producer in Australia, in collaboration with local partner HBM Packaging Technologies .
This local sale reflects the increasing popularity of the Aries technology, with more than 500 sleever systems now installed globally.
Aries sleever machines are used for a wide range of sleeving applications including cups and tubs for dairy products, fruits and snacks.
Menu-driven program formats ensure product changeover in approximately five minutes.
Using servo motor drives, the totally automated size changeover incorporates technology that virtually eliminates the operator's involvement and allows a complete range of product formats and pack styles, from open sleeve through to fully enclosed pack configurations.
Aries sleever advantages include:
* The capability to use independent supply of printed sleeves.
* Use of 100% recycled board, virgin Kraft, corrugated or similar boards.
* Top sleeve sealing which allows double board thickness for an optional carry handle and the use of lower weight board.
* Output rates up to 250 packs per minute.
