Pearl Technologies to Unveil Several New Packaging Products, Live Demos at NPE 2018

Pearl NPE 2018

Savannah, New York – April 23, 2018 – Pearl Technologies will be showcasing several new packaging products accompanied with live demos in its booth at this year’s NPE.  The new products are aimed at increasing converter line productivity, product quality and safety.

“Innovation is the DNA of Pearl Technologies and it will be on display at this year’s NPE,” said Laurent Cros, CEO of Pearl Technologies.  “We are showcasing several new products that create value for our customers addressing the need for continued productivity gains while improving worker safety. Our new units will be available for testing in the booth using customer-specific material for a first-hand demonstration that highlights ease-of-use and new safety features.”

Pearl’s innovative solutions will be on display at NPE 2018, May 7-11 Hall E, Booth W8292 in Orlando, FL. This year, a brand-new show cart will exhibit the featured products, all of which will be available for demonstrations and testing.

New products include:

Bubble guide digital control and readout

The bubble guide control unit features a simple touch screen control box that lets extruders remotely adjust the diameter of bubble guides. The system can also store recipes and can be purchased with a new bubble guide or retrofitted onto existing Pearl guides and cages.

Double sided Flex Sealer

Pearl’s intermittent Flex Sealer is ideal for sealing poly bags or pouches in the bag making process. The Flex Sealer has conveniences similar to a Pearl Flex punching unit, including the ability to change sealing style, pattern, shape or size. Sealer modules can be swapped in seconds to change the pattern or for cleanup allowing converters to continue production during maintenance. Pearl’s Flex Sealer is great for gusset sealing applications, reinforced handle seals, angle seals, security seals, pre-sealing, heat crimping and more. Available in side rail or cross rail, carriages are optional. Flex Sealers can also be converted into Flex cutters.

Double Center Pivot Punch

Capitalizing on the success of Pearl’s patented pivot punch technology, the Double Center Pivot Punch unit allows users to punch holes very close to each other (1”) without needing multiple rails. The unit features the new center pivot allowing converters to benefit from the durability and quality of Pearl’s punches for continuous motion applications.

Lightning Multi-Punch Unit

Utilizing the lightning technology, widely used in wickets application, this complementary design offers the convenience of very fast changeovers, tool-less lateral adjustment, and the optional safety box, which prevents the exposure of the punch teeth during changeover.

Other featured products will include large diameter Ball and Die, UltraFlex HD, Flex 3, Lightning Wicket with Safety Enclosure and a full set of extrusion solutions and line enhancements.
