Advanced Tooling Systems Group (ATS), one of the UK’s leading engineering service providers to the packaging, automotive, aerospace, moulding and tooling industries, will be making its debut at this year’s PPMA TOTAL Show to showcase the wide variety of solutions available from the company’s specialist Packaging Machinery division.
Distilled from more than 35 years of skills and expertise from the group, ATS Packaging Machinery designs and supplies packing equipment and complete packing lines for end markets including Food & Beverage, FMCG, Cosmetic, Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Automotive.
ATS Packaging will be featuring no fewer than four of its latest machines on the stand, demonstrating a range of high-performance lidding and capping solutions
The new FBL-150 jar lidding machine provides a fast and efficient automatic placement and tightening of metal Twist-Off (TO) and Press-on, Twist-Off (PT) closures onto glass jars and bottles with a vacuum seal. It is ideal for a variety of products including mayonnaise, ketchup, cooking sauces, pickled vegetables, jams and honey, with speeds of up to 500 jars/min.
The RSC40 from ATS’s Omega range is a high-speed rotary capping machine, which can be supplied with up to 10-heads and offers speeds of up to 240bpm. It can accommodate both traditional magnetic clutch and advanced servo-controlled tightening technologies.
The Gemini LSC40 Linear Servo Capping machine is a revolutionary new style of machine which removes the need for expensive bottle change-parts and allows the machine to be mounted over an existing conveyor system and moved between production lines for maximum flexibility. Dependant on the number of capping heads and bottle handling system selected, production of up to 80bpm is easily achievable.
Also on show will be a model from ATS Packaging’s versatile range of bottle unscramblers that allow multiple container formats to be carefully sorted and orientated in a single machine system. The range has been designed and developed to provide an unrivalled combination of precision, quality and reliability.
Group Managing Director, Adrian Gander, is looking forward to such a great opportunity to engage with new sectors at the PPMA Total Show.
“During the last couple of testing years, ATS has taken the decision to continue investing in both our equipment and manufacturing capabilities, and this forward-thinking strategy is now paying off, both in profitability and exposure to exciting new sectors,” he commented. “ATS Packaging Machinery is at the forefront of driving our growth. We are really looking forward to meeting new potential clients and discussing innovative solutions at this important show.”
ATS’s extensive manufacturing capabilities include CAD / CAM, CNC machinery, pattern making, mould tool manufacture, sheet metal fabrication, 3D-design, control system design and machine control software. In addition, the company undertakes prototyping and design services for many of its clients.
ATS products and services are employed widely both in the UK and EMEA regions, and growth has been experienced in all sectors. It has three factories in the Southeast of England with satellite design, service and support facilities in the North, as well as a support operation in Asia.
