UK-based 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.
Founded in 1998, Proseal designs and manufactures high-quality tray sealing machines, conveyor systems, and sealing tools for food industry markets worldwide, including India. Proseal is part of the JBT family, and together they remain committed to continually supporting customers’ needs.
New patent-pending ProPosition feature
The company claims that the new patent-pending ProPosition feature automatically identifies a suitable position for trays, to ensure the desired alignment every time. Its advanced technology offers food manufacturers and processors a simple one-step tool-set-up. It removes the time consuming and potentially wasteful process of running test trays through the tray sealer to ascertain the 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 speeds up product changeovers and avoids operator errors during set-up, the press release states.
ProPosition is fitted as standard to all new Proseal GT platform machines. Additionally, as part of Proseal’s ongoing strategy of futureproofing its equipment, the software can be retrofitted to any pre-existing machines with 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, systems development manager at Proseal.
“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.”
