GN Thermoforming Equipment, Chester, Nova Scotia, showcased at NPE2015 its GN760 plug-assist thermoformer for high-output production of PET lids for the food service market.

The cut-in-place machine will demonstrate a 20-up tool for PET lids that measure 5-in. (123-mm) dia, running at 28 cycles/min. and producing 725,000 lids/day.

The machine has a 762 mm x 533 mm (30 in. x 21 in.) forming area and incorporates many of the same components found in GN’s traditional machines. The new larger model expands GN’s line of plug-assist machines, meeting the demand for medium- to large-volume runs.

The GN760 uses servo drives for plugging, material transport, stripping, and stacking. It also boasts a radiant infrared heating system with 60 zones and an electronic regeneration system which reduces energy use, resulting in a savings of approximately $9000/yr.
