Proseal has launched a tray-positioning system that calculates the required tray-spacing setup parameters for individual tray sealing toolsets, eliminating the trial and error usually associated with this process.
The new ProPosition feature automatically identifies the best position for trays to ensure accurate alignment. Its advanced technology provides food manufacturers and processors with a one-step setup, and minimises the time-consuming process of running test trays through the tray sealer to ascertain the best position. Instead, operators are guided through the setup via the instructions on the machine’s touchscreen.
The system is able to save the relevant parameters for each tool, thus speeding up product changeovers and avoid operator error during setup.
ProPosition is fitted as standard to all new Proseal GT platform machines. Additionally, as part of Proseal’s strategy of futureproofing its equipment, the software can be retrofitted to any pre-existing machines which have the suffix GTe and GTs.
Paul Watkin, systems development manager for Proseal, commented: “The new ProPosition system showcases our engineering innovation and underlines Proseal’s commitment to being at the forefront of product development and innovation. This technology helps to minimise downtime, reduce errors and minimise waste to deliver valuable cost savings that will, in turn, deliver a fast return on investment.”
