    • Saves 11 feet from previous design;
    • Better operational efficiency with ewer steps needed for monitoring and adjustments;
    • Extra floor space can be otherwise productively used;
  • Smooth and Quiet Operation;
    • Physically and visibly stable while running; and
    • 70 dB or less at nominal run speed.

The CMD 760-SUP Stand Up Pouch System has been redesigned to answer those needs most urgently expressed by converters.

The improved design retains the technology and benefits offered in the original design, including:

SKU proliferation and the resulting short runs puts a special emphasis on changeover time among the converters CMD interviewed. The answer is a design with straightforward accessibility, quick-change features, and simple-accurate adjustments to drastically cut downtime;
  • Logical, Simple Maintenance – along with needing quick changeovers, the market asked for quick, logical, predictive maintenance to reduce scheduled and unplanned downtime. The 760-SUP emphasizes accessibility and simplicity with the right amount of technical sophistication to help predict when maintenance will be needed – to avoid breakdowns and stoppages; and
  • Robust Precision – unique technology provides the industry’s most stable and repeatable process for the highest predictability in web handling, sealing and pouch quality.
