The GN DX series of contact-heat, cut-in-place thermoformers from GN Thermoforming Equipment, Chester, Nova Scotia, is a new line of servo-driven machines that provide significantly greater cutting capacity for making APET food packaging. The GN 3021 DX has 30 x 21 in. forming area and the GN 3625 DX a 36 x 25 in. area.

     Reinforced cast beams provide increased rigidity for cutting APET. These machines handle 50% more linear knife length than standard GN machines. The GN 3021 DX operates at 25 to 30 dry cycles/min. Power consumption is 7.5 kwh/hr. At 12 ft long and 6 ft wide, the machine is said to be compact for its platen size.

     The GN 3625 DX offers throughput up to 30 cycles/min with power consumption of only 12 kwh/hr. Both machines can run sheet from 0.15 to 1 mm thick.

     The transport system and common-edged cutting dies together help reduce overall scrap to 12% to 14%, well below the industry standard, according to the company. The machines come with multi-zone contact heating, electric preheater, static eliminator, built-in powered unwind, adjustable part stripping for increased speed, and remote diagnostic capability.
