Latest Linkx technology at Total Processing and Packaging Show - stand number A50

16 May 2013

Linkx Systems will be exhibiting the latest Linkx Technology and Patented Machinery at this year’s Total Processing and Packaging Show.

The patented Random Box Sizer intelligently measures the empty volume of any random, loaded box size and cuts and creases it to final package dimensions ready for folding, sealing and bagging prior to end-of-line labelling.

Due to carrier companies charging on volume rather than weight alone; this unique machine has been designed to reduce the volume of packaged goods and the use of excess packaging material.  The machine, which is ideally suited for use in mail-order warehouses and the order fulfilment operations of on-line retailers, is capable of working with boxes presented in random sizes and is compatible with almost any type and size of box content. 

The innovative iCon conveying system, which has been developed jointly by conveyor system specialists AlphaChase & packaging experts Linkx Systems, offers a convenient and flexible solution to the problem of accurate product positioning on conveyors. 

With the iCon system, options for product positioning are almost unlimited; they include lateral movement across the conveyor, rotation, merging, diverting and gapping, all of which are achieved without the need to use conventional diverters or guides. This not only simplifies the design and construction of conveying installations, but also provides greatly enhanced versatility, as the operational parameters of an iCon system can be easily reprogrammed.
