Engineered Solutions Portfolio Expands with UBS-Sonixs
Strapping systems supplier EAM-Mosca Corporation is pleased to introduce the UBS-Sonixs bottom seal strapping system for automated or operator-cycled strapping of large and/or heavy product packages. The UBS-Sonixs is an economical but high-performance bottom seal strapping system designed for integration into automated packing lines.
EAM-Mosca Corporation is well known for its Mosca brand bundling and unitizing systems. The company’s product line includes several models of bottom seal strappers from walk-up, table-top to fully automatic conveyorized versions. The new UBS-Sonixs broadens this offering to include an industrial strength strapping head featuring Mosca’s proprietary Sonixs ultra-sonic sealing technology and a modular track system with openings up to 2 meters square. The unit has a depth of only 13” in the pass-through direction so that larger products can be conveyed through it without building powered conveyor into the strapper itself. It has a minimum table height of only 12” so that it can be part of a low height conveyor system or mounted on legs to match up to higher lines with better ergonomics for operators performing final product prep tasks.
The strap seal is positioned within 4” of the center of the track, conveniently located for products that are conveyed down the center of the packing line. The typical strapping cycle ranges from 8 to 15 seconds from the time the product reaches strapping position, to its release for conveying to its next operation.
UBS-Sonixs is controlled by a Siemens Series 7-300 controller. It includes a push-button operator interface mounted on the free standing electric panel. It can be cycled by an operator via pushbutton or footswitch and it can be cycled automatically through signal exchange with an external controller.
The Sonixs strapping head operates with either Polypropylene or Polyester strapping in widths from 9 to 12mm and breaking strengths of from 400 to 750 Lbs. The head is capable of pulling tension from snug to 450 Lbs. tension, depending on strap and product requirements. The Sonixs ultra-sonic seal provides fast, strong seals with no warm up time and no smoke; simple mechanics provide a long life with minimal maintenance. Sonixs is self-monitoring and adjusts key parameters each cycle to ensure consistent seals every cycle. The sealing head is pivotally mounted and can be hinged up for easy cleaning and service access.
The UBS-Sonixs features a modular spring gate track system that can be expanded from its minimum 1100mm wide x 1000mm high track in 250mm increments to a 2100mm W x 2000mm H max opening. Customized larger openings maybe quoted on request.
UBS-Sonixs is EAM-Mosca’s most recent entry in its growing Engineered Solutions equipment portfolio, adding to several new strapping machine models, conveying equipment and control options that apply industry leading Mosca technology to current packaging requirements in creative and flexible ways.
