Pro Mach division Axon will introduce a Category 3 safety-interlock system for the ThermoPoint steam heat tunnel for Latin American businesses.
Developed in the US by the National Fire Protection Association and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Category 3 standard has been designed to protect workers from physical hazards in the workplace.
The safety-interlock system also includes a manual reset pushbutton that avoids steam flow from restarting automatically after clearing a fault.
Axon director of marketing and Latin American business development Adrian Hermosillo said, "Customers will find this Category 3 safety-interlock system the perfect addition to the ThermoPoint steam-heat-shrink tunnel in terms of ensuring operator safety on the packaging line."
Axon’s solution for a quality shrink process for labels and tamper evident bands on packaging, ThermoPoint steam tunnel is easy to use and maintain, and also minimizes downtime by aiding fast changeover between products.
ThermoPoint is available in zone configurations of three or six and each of the tunnel’s heat zones can be adjusted independently to deliver steam to the label or band at different rates, heights as well as angles.
