Proseal launches new technology to help ensure matched tooling components
Leading tray sealing and case packing technology company Proseal, a subsidiary of JBT Corp., has launched a new product designed to protect against damage that results from mismatched or incorrectly installed tooling components.
The IntelliTool ensures all installed tooling components are a matched set and that the tooling components are engaged correctly. When a mismatch occurs, the machinery will not run, and the Human Machine Interface will display the components that need correcting, according to a news release.
All tooling errors are recorded to the machine’s alarm list and are viewable using ProVisionTM, an automated, real-time data capture and analysis platform.
“We know keeping productivity up is vital to long-term success for our partners,” Paul Watkin, Proseal lead product line manager, said in the release. “The new IntelliTool technology is our approach to allow customers to mitigate their machines’ component issues sooner, minimize their machine downtime and
maximize their production capacity to help meet their requirements and consumer demands.”
IntelliTool, which enables machinery to recognize currently installed tool components with radio frequency identification chips, is available on new and existing Proseal GTe and GTs machines. Conversion pricing is available, according to the release.
