The ProPosition system automates tray spacing set-up parameters. It reduces errors and saves operators’ time because they don’t need to run test trays through the tray sealer to determine the best position.
Graham Finke, MD of Trempak and Proseal’s local market distributor, explains that this first-of-its-kind, patent-pending ProPosition feature automatically identifies the best position for trays, ensuring perfect alignment each time. ‘Operators are guided through the one-step tool set-up via easy-to-follow animated instructions on the machine’s touchscreen. The system then permanently saves the relevant parameters for each tool, greatly speeding up product changeovers and avoiding operator set-up errors,’ he comments.
Paul Watkin, Proseal’s systems development manager, adds: ‘This pioneering technology helps to minimise downtime, reduce errors and minimise waste to deliver valuable cost savings that will deliver a faster return on investment. It also underlines Proseal’s commitment to being at the forefront of product development and innovation as a tray sealing machine, conveyor system and sealing tool specialist.’
ProPosition is fitted as standard to all new Proseal GT platform machines. The software can also be retrofitted to existing machines with the GTe or GTs suffix.
The GTe range is designed to perform any style of heat seal to a preformed tray, be that atmospheric, gas flush, vacuum/gas, skin, skin plus, or skin deep. Each option can be initially specified or added as required. This flexibility provides processors with the assurance that their tray sealing equipment is suitably geared for future packaging trends.
The GTs range, on the other hand, provides a user-friendly and efficient selection of machinery designed with the ultrafast user in mind. It’s ideal for conveniently cut or prepared fresh fruit, salads or vegetable trays where atmospheric sealing or simple, yet accurate, gas flush sealing is required.
Trempak also offers the complete solution for skin packaging with the highly reliable Proseal GTRe machine.
Graham adds: ‘With over 30 years’ experience in the packaging game, Trempak provides skilled engineering, installation and back-up service for all its machinery. The team delivers a comprehensive tray sealing offering through stocking a wide variety of lidding and skin films, both plain and printed.’
