Punnets and clam shells

Newtec produces many NBM machines with lid closer.
Lately we have made a NBM61 with lid closer in combination with a special 2009 for mix of small peppers.
The weigher was split into 2-5-2 to make it possible to mix peppers of two or three colours.
The NBMs with lid closers have always been slower than the NBMs without closer. To increase speed we have made machines with two closing units, which work parallel with each other. In the near future we will build a NBM91 with triple closer.
The three closers will operate at the same time as the dispenser loads three punnets on the conveyor. This will minimize the time lost for closing, and we should be able to do over 60 per minute, if fed from a weigher with three conveyors.
Our most specialized NBM is the NBM61 TC for triangular punnets.
For this type of punnets it has been necessary to make the closing unit outside the punnet conveyor. The closing unit is built as an integrated part of the push out unit.
It will close two punnets at a time.
The machine is able to fill and close 50-55 punnets per minute.
The machine was made for the Rubipack triangular punnet, but has been adapted to other types as well.
