“With capital expenditure budgets being tightened through the uncertainty, we have seen a significant in- crease in demand for refurbished equipment. Our shop has been busy with several complete air systems that we brought in and updated with NFPA-compliant components, modernized the controls, and reinstalled in new locations for our customers. We have also performed complete re- builds at our facility or on site to extend the operating life of existing fans, separators, dust collectors, balers, shred- ders, and other equipment. Our experienced and skilled technicians minimize down time and improve performance of systems and equipment. “Looking forward into 2021 and beyond we will con- tinue to provide our customers with both new and refur- bished trim and dust collection systems, equipment, and expertise to keep their facilities producing at full capacity. Our website is updated daily. Available equipment can be viewed on our website at .” Call (816) 966-1473. Email SIGNODE Glenview, Illinois: Jonathan Lust reports, “Signode offers a comprehensive line of equipment to help box makers introduced the SIG-VCS Tandem Automatic Bundler Sys- tem to cut out the sources of downtime that eat into profit margins industry wide—a major concern of our corrugat- ed industry customers. This automatic corrugated cross strapping and squaring bundler leverages the power of two bundlers and conveyors to increase efficiency and throughput and is capable of up to 36 bundles per minute at busy box plants. “Perhaps the most significant benefit of the OEM-ag- nostic SIG-VCS Tandem, which is ready to seamlessly inte- grate into any production line, is its versatility and efficien- cy in handling changing production needs. The bundler is capable of re-feeding the strap up to three times without operator support. It is also equipped with bundle diversion technology, allowing it to divert all work to the functional bundler in the event that the other is not operational. Both of these innovations keep downtime to a minimum, maxi- mizing profits and efficiency. “Bundling is just one of the many end-of-line solutions available to corrugated box plants. Signode offers com- prehensive, innovative equipment that unifies and opti- mizes output and maximizes profitability and cost savings. Our highly intuitive Octopus Twin Series automatic rotary effectively unitize, wrap and bun- dle corrugated products. Signode doesn’t just supply equipment and offer service, it works directly with customers to identify their biggest challenges and develop unique, valuable solutions. “At the end of 2020, Signode Jonathan Lust
