Optima Provides Packaging Solutions for Wipes Tubs

December 9, 2005

Optima has completed a fully automatic packaging solution for wet wipes in plastic tubs. The wipes can be placed in the tubs as bulk stacks or prepackaged stacks in plastic bags. An upstream converter cuts, folds and stacks the wipes, which are then fed via conveyor into the packaging line. The plastic tubs are conveyed into the machine from the side and filled by a distribution station. Four tubs are filled per machine cycle. The lids are also fed from the side on four lanes originating from a product storage area. They are pneumatically pressed on and locked into place, guaranteeing a tightly closed product. A camera system checks the position of the lids during final inspection, and faulty tubs are automatically rejected.
