Paktek, a manufacturer of automatic folder gluers and flute laminators from Taiwan, will participate in PrintPack 2017 to showcase its PK-650 automatic folder gluer at the event and project it as an economical alternative for entry-level investment. The gluer works well for running duplex board as well as for microflute corrugated board for the design of straight-line, double-side, and 4-corner cartons. The options can include CD wallet device, automatic glue injection system, easy pack, plasma treater, UV grinder and others.
The PK-650 supports a stable feeding system, which can be built with suction feeder, driven by an independent less-noise inverter and fitted with a vibration motor for correct feeding. The support of pneumatic feeding knives and left and right baffles at the feeder section provide convenient adjustments.
The gluing unit for the lower side has a 2-phase doctor blade to control the glue volume and prevent the glue from flying during high-speed operations. The gluing unit for the upper side comes with a movable upper gluing wheel. All the glue tanks are fitted with re-filling bottles to save time for glue supply. The folder section works with the pressing wheel device where the speed of the outer folding belt is adjustable independently to avoid fish tail problems.
The Paktek automatic flute laminator can be in-lined with pre-loaders for convenient feeding while its automatic pile turners are used for automatic stacking and are suitable for most brands of flute laminators. With the support of the pile turner, the collection of finished products is done automatically with the choice of turning or not-turning.
Paktek’s one-piece and multiple-piece folder gluer, model KS-1600/2100M, is capable of handling cartons up to 3200 mm wide. It occupies minimum working space and provides an immediate solution to make very big cartons with current converting machines. Using Paktek’s self-developed 2-Gun Cold Glue and 2-Gun hot melt injection system, it offers instant gluing and permanent adhesion, which does not re-open even under extreme temperature changes during transportation. It takes about 5-15 minutes for setting up a new job through the support of carrier movement by motorization and accuracy regulator.
