After a decade of running a CW 200 lap sealer in their plant, a prominent pizza manufacturer in the midwest decided to upgrade their line. Like any good recipe, the new line would require customization to satisfy their tastes. Knowing what was capable on the Evolution Series of wrappers, Conflex was up for the task. The end result was collaboration of Conflex technology and pizza wrapping 'know-how' to create one heck of a pizza wrapper. Fast AND Flexible are features typically not found on the same piece of equipment, but this machine delivers. See below for some unique features that contributed to their "recipe" for success.
"Recipe" For Success
1 - Stainless Steel CW200 Evolution Lap Seal Wrapper able to wrap pizzas from 6" - 16" while producing no scrap.
1 - Open Rail Wash-down Infeed with catch pans to keep cheese and other ingredients off the floor.
1 - Custom Allen Bradley Controls Package so they could standardize throughout the plant.
1 - Servo Controlled Vacuum Belt to make changeovers recipe based, quick and easy.
1 - Dual Knife Servo controlled Rotary Seal Head for speed and accuracy.
1 - Anti- jam Technology that will not allow the wrapper to seal on a pizza eliminating costly downtime and seal bars destroyed by acidic pizza sauce.
1 - No Gap / No Seal Technology that will not force a seal between product when it is too close together.
1 - No Empty Bag Technology that will not produce empty bags when the flight is not filled. This means no empty bags in the tunnel that ultimately become a fire hazard.
1 - Multiple Encoder and Data Points for communication and integration with other equipment.
1 - Custom Guarding and Double Footage Film Cradle to minimize costly downtime during changeovers.
1 - Conflex Factory Start-up and Training to make sure everything goes as planned.
