ASG - adjustable side guidings

(Automatically) adjustable side guidings


In today’s world of quick changeovers, the changeover of conveying lines can be very time-consuming.

Moreover, with increasing speeds, we want a line to be independent from the engineer who sets it, making life easier, and ensuring a quick changeover.
For this reason, we have developed a range of automatically adjustable side guidings.

The guidings

We have designed our guidings for blow molding, by blow molding technicians.

Furthermore, we apply the six sigma methodology when designing our machines over the years:

  1. Define
  2. Measure
  3. Analyse
  4. Improve
  5. Control

This results in special parts being made, as well as setting techniques.
Focus on quick changeover. For instance, if you have to set up a guiding, set one only, keep the other side fixed for 80 % of your products if possible. As a result, you will save on changeover time.

In the corners, we have developed a special bottle dependent part set (see video below), which allows you to change them quickly.
Corners in particular are difficult to set, especially with unstable products. But our bottle depending part approach allows you to change a curve in less than one minute!

Besides, on the automatic setting side, there are different possibilities for our adjustable side guidings:

  • Fully manual
  • Manual, speedsets (plastic parts which are spring loaded to allow quick changeover)
  • Manual with handwheel, to set straight sections
  • Automatic, servo controlled
