Company: Massman Automation Designs, LLC

Equipment Snapshot: Massman Automation Designs, LLC will introduce its new compact, low cost of operation HMT-Mini top only case sealer at Pack Expo Las Vegas, September 23-25. This new sealer incorporates an innovative modular construction that allows specific features of the sealer to be changed out, enabling users to meet growing production demands by replacing modules rather than by investing in a new sealer. This modularity can also facilitate future sealer design changes and is a major factor in reducing production lead times for the HMT-Mini by 50%.

Interested attendees can view the new sealer in action at booth C-2414. Massman specialists will also be on hand to discuss the various features of the new system and to answer any questions.

The standard HMT-Mini top-seals cases using either glue or tape at speeds of up to 1,500 cases per hour. An optional, more advanced sealer incorporating extended compression can seal at rates of up to 3,000 cases per hour. The fully-automatic sealer features robust, heavy-duty construction, speedy changeover to new case sizes and is completely enclosed. The system’s transparent enclosure offers increased visibility of the operation, and interlocked Lexan access doors on either side of the enclosure give greater access to the machinery without sacrificing safety.

The HMT-Mini seals standard cases up to 18 inches long, 16 inches wide and 16 inches deep. The modularization of the comp, tucking and metering functions of the system enable them to be changed to allow sealing of larger cases. The sealer has a compact footprint measuring 110 inches in length and 36 inches in width. It has an infeed height of 24 inches and can include either a drop gate or metered automatic infeed.
