Axon Showcases the Stainless Steel Lanzara Shrink Sleeve Applicator at the International Dairy Show

Sep 08, 2015

RALEIGH, NC — Axon, powered by ProMach, showcases its stainless steel Lanzara Shrink Sleeve Applicator at the International Dairy Show for the first time, September 15-18, McCormick Place, Chicago, Ill. The Lanzara is designed for the dairy industry’s wet-filling rooms and other demanding environments. (Axon International Dairy Show Booth # 8009)

The Lanzara is a servo controlled mandrel-style shrink film applicator with stainless steel frame options in 304 grade for wet-filling rooms and 316 grade for increased corrosion resistance. These new frames were developed for dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, chemical, and other processors looking for the performance and versatility of stainless steel.

At speeds up to 400 units per minute, Lanzara delivers the highest output at the most sensible price of any applicator in the industry. The heart of the Lanzara is the PacDrive™ 3 automation platform from Schneider Electric™, which integrates PLC and motion control functionality into a high-performance packaging-machine solution. The PacDrive 3 updates I/O motion blocks at a blistering one millisecond each, giving Lanzara outstanding motion control and overall flexibility. For example, with the new Axon Smart Speed Control feature, Lanzara can automatically increase or decrease the sleeving rate, matching upstream and downstream line speed without operator involvement for ‘set it and forget it’ operation. Smart Speed Control ensures optimum throughput, uptime, and quality.

Lanzara meets the PackML standard and delivers seamless communication and integration with up-stream and down-stream equipment. This results in faster start up, closely integrated operation with other machines on the line, and more rapid troubleshooting.

With a new Smart Cutting System, Axon has dramatically improved its film cutting technology, reducing the number of blade changeovers required by 66 percent when compared to past generation solutions. In addition, Lanzara features a new Smart Film Feed System that simplifies film threading and greatly improves the control of the film web as it moves through the machine, especially at higher speeds, reducing waste and downtime.

The new 10-inch HMI color touch-screen display provides an intuitive, highly visual interface for operators and service technicians. The HMI is the window into the Lanzara’s smart diagnostics program that monitors machine performance, makes calculations based on that performance and history of preventative maintenance, and alerts operators to the exact date a maintenance procedure should be carried out. Smart diagnostics leading to preventive maintenance ensures the machine operates at peak efficiency and produces quality products hour after hour.
