Polyketting BV has launched a new series of horizontal First-in First-out accumulators. Whereas they concentrated with their 7th generation FTms-series of accumulators (new patented design) on buffering drink-cartons, PET-bottles, Glass-bottles, HDPE-cans etc., Polyketting offers now also horizontal FiFo accumulation solutions for pouch type or flexible packaging.
With a full-dynamic infeed, the new series FTgi & FTsi are able to handle any type of form-sensitive packaging like pouches, flow wrap packaging, blister and clamshell packaging, sealed tray food packaging, pillow bags etc. FTgi is designed for low speed, the FTsi is for medium to high speed lines.
The multi-lane accumulation-body is identical to the FTms-series, in- & out feed technology are based on zero-contact, zero-pressure and full continuous motion. Where FTms-series have perpendicular in- and out feed unit, the FTgi as well as FTsi have in- & out feed & accumulation lanes in-line.
With the introduction of the new FTsi & FTgi series for pouch and flow wrap packaging, Polyketting strengthen their program in accumulation technology; not only accumulation-experts in securing product-orientation and handling odd shape’s, but also able to handle form-sensitive, flexible packaging.
