Kalamazoo Packaging specializes in designing and building custom machines. We have the ability to electronically model machines before building them, which is inherently cheaper than building a machine that may not work. Because we design and test products before we build them, we reduce the amount of costly errors during the build stage. The example below is from a baggage wrapper designed for airports. The four main steps to successfully designing and building a machine are below. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
1. Create Auto-CAD drawings.
2. Create 3-D Models using the drawings.
3. Animate the solid Model. (click Here to watch animation.)
4. If everything looks good, build the machine.
Below are some more animations of custom machines.
This system is designed to handle glass and can be used with a horizontal wrapper to build a complete packaging line. During the process the glass is inspected, foam is applied, and the glass is wrapped.
