A new servo-driven inline former from Modern Machinery of Beaverton Inc., Beaverton, Mich., reportedly delivers high repeatability and 50% faster cycles than pneumatic/hydraulic units. The CFTS model has more then 20 servo motors that cut cycle times for roll-fed packaging in half, down 3 to 7 sec. Servo-driven rail adjustment provides automatic positioning for quick tool changes. Tool carts are interfaced to a lifting and feeding system, cutting mold-change times from 60 min to 10 min. A special Busch vacuum pump reduces noise below 65 dbA and permits oil-free cleanroom use. Max. mold sizes are 25 to 60 in. (989) 435-9071 • www.modern machineinc.com
