Comtex 3G

Three-sided, sealed packaging is produced by means of half-tubular film. Working in-line and controlled via light curtains, this machine can alternately process inbound products of different sizes within its size range. This means that product length, width and height can vary. The products do not have to be pre-sorted.

The machine is set to the maximum possible sizes. Depending on the product width, this creates a film overhang that is sealed off in a downstream side sealing station. By scanning the product during the packaging process and tightly sealing the film overhang in both directions, a tight film bag is produced on all sides around the product.

A returnable item, ready for dispatch, is returned to the various picking warehouses. The concept originates from the requirement of packaging textile returns in mail order houses and has been extended to shipping packaging through the use of coloured film. The processing of other products such as books of various sizes (Book On Demand) and magazines with inserts (gimmicks) is also possible.

The new generation of fully-automatic mail order and returns packaging line is available with or without labelling. In the Comtex 3G, the operation of the side sealing station has been fundamentally changed to increase performance. This makes outputs of up to 1800 parts per hour possible. A patent application has been filed for this innovation.
