WF Series Featured at Pack Expo Las Vegas, Booth C711
DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, October 4 /CNW/ - Wexxar Packaging announced
today its new WF10 fully automatic case former which provides a flexible,
easy-to-use solution for forming a variety of cases of either right hand or
left hand orientation on the same machine. The inline WF10 is the latest in
Wexxar's innovative WF Series of automatic case forming solutions available
earlier this year.
The WF10's unique omni-handed feature allows case packers to form
right-handed and left-handed cases on the same machine. This omni-handed
feature makes the WF10 particularly useful for customers which pack a variety
of cases with different printing orientations, such as contract packagers and
others which want flexibility without the cost of purchasing specific handed
The WF10 includes Wexxar's Pin & Dome technology which provides a simple
mechanical system for case opening that has long been the standard for
efficient and effective case forming. In the WF10, Wexxar's Pin & Dome
technology has been redesigned to form boxes from the bottom to keep all
moving parts down low and within the machine frame. This provides added safety
and reduces the need for elaborate and costly guarding. As with all WF series
machines, the Pin & Dome system can be easily released and reinserted in a
different position without unbolting the mechanism.
The WF10 forms 10 cases per minute and incorporates the same features
that earned the WF 20 and WF 30 accolades for ease of use and case forming
quality. Features include a color-coded tactile guide, color-coded knobs and
handles, and a corresponding setup check list. This allows for a completely
tactile setup and highly user-friendly changeover.
"The WF10 and other machines in the WF Series set a new standard for
quality, efficient operation, and ease of use at a total cost of ownership
unavailable elsewhere in the marketplace," said William Chu, Wexxar General
Manager and Vice President. "We're particularly pleased about bringing the
Omni-handed feature to our customers, which directly addresses the flexibility
requirements of customers across all markets. Feedback from our customers
about the value of an Omni-handed machine has been overwhelming."
The WF10 is currently integrated fully with the BEL 252 Case Sealer to
offer an automatic case forming and sealing solution for customers operating
lower volume lines.
Wexxar will introduce the WF10 at Pack Expo in Las Vegas this month. The
machine will be on display in booth C-711. The first machines will be
available for purchase in the first quarter of 2008. Packing line engineers
can work with Wexxar/BEL Sales representatives to create customized lines for
all types of packing needs such as case and tray forming, glue sealing, tape
sealing, bag inserting, roller conveying and case check-weighing. For more
