Options of Pyxis to match product requirements
Pyxis enables the use of different inner liners, like printed-paper, pre-shaped paper and embossed foil. When size changing is required, the machine’s size dependent parts can be adjusted without difficulty. This results in less down time. In addition, Pyxis offers a wide range of options to accommodate your product and production requirements.
Pyxis is user friendly for operators
The Pyxis is genuinely user friendly and reduces operator interventions to the minimum. Instead of feeding boxes by hand, boxes are loaded automatically. In addition, all the sections where packing material could run out, detection devices are installed so that the operator knows well in advance when to stock the system with materials. Via the multi-language touch screen panel has instant access to this information.
Controlling product quality on Pyxis
In order to control and ensure the quality of the end-product, Pyxis possesses a wide scope of instruments to measure, for example if the boxes are opened properly, contain the right quality and amount of cigarettes and if the inner liner is positioned correctly. When any of these product quality requirements are not met during the packing process, the single product will be ejected automatically.
