New products include:
Double-sided Flex Sealer (above)
Pearl’s intermittent Flex Sealer is ideal for sealing poly bags or pouches in the bag making process. The Flex Sealer has conveniences similar to a Pearl Flex punching unit, including the ability to change sealing style, pattern, shape or size. Sealer modules can be swapped in seconds to change the pattern or for cleanup allowing converters to continue production during maintenance. Pearl’s Flex Sealer is great for gusset sealing applications, reinforced handle seals, angle seals, security seals, pre-sealing, heat crimping and more. Available in side rail or cross rail, carriages are optional. Flex Sealers can also be converted into Flex cutters.
Bubble guide digital control and readout
The bubble guide control unit features a simple touch screen control box that lets extruders remotely adjust the diameter of bubble guides. The system can also store recipes and can be purchased with a new bubble guide or retrofitted onto existing Pearl guides and cages.
Double-Center Pivot Punch (left)
Capitalizing on the success of Pearl’s patented pivot punch technology, the Double Center Pivot Punch unit allows users to punch holes very close to each other (1”) without needing multiple rails. The unit features the new center pivot allowing converters to benefit from the durability and quality of Pearl’s punches for continuous motion applications.
Lightning Multi-Punch Unit
Utilizing the lightning technology, widely used in wickets application, this complementary design offers the convenience of very fast changeovers, tool-less lateral adjustment, and the optional safety box, which prevents the exposure of the punch teeth during changeover.
Other featured products will include large diameter Ball and Die, UltraFlex HD, Flex 3, Lightning Wicket with Safety Enclosure and a full set of extrusion solutions and line enhancements.
