Further reinforcing its position at the forefront of high performance banding equipment, Jenton Packaging – part of Jenton International – has launched the portable, low maintenance Bandit 300 heat seal banding machine.
This latest bench top system is specially designed for both semi and fully automatic applications that require lightweight yet high strength plastic films.
In line with an increasing requirement to reduce the use of plastics, the new Jenton Bandit 300 is capable of handling 40-60 micron plastic film which is half the thickness of film used by other banding machines.
For added flexibility, the compact Jenton Bandit 300 also offers paper and printed banding. It handles product up to 300mm with operating speeds up to 25 cycles per minute.
The Jenton Bandit 300 is ideal for daily delivered postal items such as lunch packs, retail tamper evidence, greetings cards and multipacks. In addition, clear plastic film can be used for more innovative banding applications such as t-shirts, tea towels and padded envelopes.
When used with paper, the Jenton Bandit 300 can wrap airline meals, cutlery, shelf stacking and vending machine loading.
For maximum uptime, the well-proven arch feature means that the film feed is trackless eliminating the possibility of dust or tool-based jams. The design also facilitates the continuous application of multi-bands.
A simple banding tension control adjusts to the product and a patented tape guide mechanism allows trouble free table feeding.
With a portable, ‘plug and play’ design, the Jenton Bandit 300 can be used across different production areas whilst offering simple operation via an automatic foot pedal or start switch. It boasts customisable temperature / dwell time menu, is microprocessor controlled and CE-approved.
Jenton Packaging designs and constructs trollies and tables to allow integration of the Bandit 300 into individual production environments. The company can also supply automatic infeed and outfeed conveying systems for its banding systems.
Other accessories include banding with either repeat or registered print up to four colours.
Jenton Packaging supplies ATS banders, its own Bandit banding systems and Emplex bag sealers on a purchase or rental basis.
At its Whitchurch-based facility, Jenton Group offers a full workshop for equipment repair and maintains an extensive stock of spares in addition to having a number of service engineers available for on-site repairs and maintenance.
