Schneider Packaging Equipment Co., Inc., introduces ProAdjust™, an innovative add-on solution that automatically adjusts the change-over points of most machines. ProAdjust makes changeovers fast, accurate and repeatable which can dramatically improve a machine’s overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and lower costs at Pack Expo 2013,Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth# 2525.
ProAdjust is compatible with most machinery in every industry. It is a self-contained system consisting of a controller and integrated PowerPacks that provide the motion. The system is specifically designed to meet the requirements of what an auto-adjust system needs to be while being easy to implement. The system is scalable from one to hundreds of adjustment points. Wiring is plug-and-go, and most importantly, no programming is required. ProAdjust uses a simple point and click touch screen interface for one-time machine setup and features an easy setup for creating and editing ‘recipes.’
“The ProAdjust integration is completed on-site and requires no middleware or manual adjustments to achieve consistent, precisely aligned, automatic adjustments of machine change-over points. This increases throughput, and eliminates the mistakes and excessive change-over time that typically happens, resulting in wasted production time and product,” says, Richard Schneider, President, Schneider Packaging. “As an example, a machine automated with ProAdjust at 14 points of adjustment resulted in a 28 minute changeover savings, recouping the cost of the ProAdjust system in just four months,” Schneider added.
As manufacturers face increasing demand to produce more SKU’s on existing equipment, the need to both improve line efficiency and reduce changeover time is paramount. ProAdjust is designed to address the need for speed and accuracy by providing a solution that can be added onto new equipment from an OEM as a low cost option or older existing equipment as a field retrofit. Equipment such as fillers, cartoners, stamping presses, laser cutters, mixers, case packers, palletizers, or case loaders all benefit from the installment of ProAdjust.
