Skin Packing Machine

Alcon Post #15

Skin Packing Machine

In House Machine Highlight
The skin packing machine represents the final stage of production for most of our products. The skin packer performs several duties. It provides a protective shield for each part while enhancing the safety and ease of handling for the customer and presents a uniformly sized unit for final packaging for shipment. Each part is placed on a properly sized piece of kraft corrugated skin board. Next, heat sensitive plastic sheet is rolled over the parts and attached to the frame at the perimeter. After the start button is pushed, the heating elements roll forward over the parts, the perimeter frame rises to about 6 inches below the heating elements until the film reaches the proper temperature at which point, the vacuum is started, the perimeter frame descends, the plastic film adheres to the skin board, the heating element retracts and the cooling process begins. The parts are ready to be removed after a minute or two. For a visual presentation, click the link below.
