Supreme Plastics Ltd.
Supreme Plastics, tel:020 8349 3434, will be introducing the Joker
425U at the exhibition. This is cost-effective machine that will enable
medium volume producers to create resealable or conventional pouches in
polyethylene or polypropylene for even the most difficult to pack
products, they assure us. This system, two examples of which will be
demonstrated, is designed around the concept of a continuous chain of
preformed bags. This 'chain' is fitted with channels, allowing
the bags to run along two fixed guide rods which support and open each
bag at the point of filling. The Model 425U is the largest in the series
and features longer sealing and cooling units, to allow faster packing
and greater capacity; also on show will be Model 320SL, which completes
a ready-packed bag by automatically applying a heat sealed cardboard
header label. The company will also provide details of two zipper application retrofit systems. The Flowseal 2000 is one of the first
retrofit systems for horizontal form fill seal machines ; it applies a
zipper longitudinally. The second unit is a transverse zipper applicator that will work with the narrow profile newly developed by the company.
