American Film and Machinery, formerly NAFM, a manufacturer of shrink sleeve and label solutions, is using PACK EXPO Connects to introduce its CH-100 Tamper Band applicator. The CH-100 is designed for low to moderate production rates and is a perfect solution for industries including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, health and beauty, consumer goods, chemical, and other manufactured goods.
The CH-100 is a fast and efficient butterfly mandrel style tamper band applicator engineered to meet the demand of your workflow. Designed for 24 hour operation, CH-100’s simple and low maintenance design allows for quick film change and maximum uptime. CH-100’s compact housing is constructed from 304 grade stainless steel and anodized aluminum to provide strength and reduce vibration while offering quiet operation. Product runs are programmed with the user-friendly touch-screen control interface, making setup and operation fast and easy.
CH-100 Tamper Band Applicators are designed with stepper motor driven, single film unwind with tension control, cutter assembly, and pneumatic cylinder to provide accurate and consistent tamper band application. CH-100 has been engineered to handle round bottles made of plastic, glass, or metal at speeds up to 120CPM. The single blade guillotine cutting mechanism provides extremely smooth, even cutting of PVC/PETG film 50 to 70 microns in thickness.
The machines feature a single unwind system with tension control for proper film alignment, and our photo eye sensor system allows for register cutting, guaranteeing accurate cutting of the film for consistent band application on the container. The CH-100 also comes with the company's quick change system for switching mandrels with a turn of a knob. Along with the mandrel, the cutter assembly has only two levers to turn, keeping your downtime to a minimum.
