SA to offer live demos of CITADEL at All4Pack, Paris

Making its debut at All4Pack, global packaging machinery giant Shemesh Automation (SA) will once again change the landscape of round wipes packaging with live demos of its latest innovation – the Citadel automatic monoblock solution for flexible packs.

Already making waves in the wet wipes packaging industry the Citadel is an Industry 4.0 ready, all-in-one monoblock packer designed for round wipes in ready-made bags.

Specifically designed as a single block, the Citadel is a robust, fully automatic, servo driven vertical index machine with operating speeds of up to 30ppm.

Bags are stacked in a magazine and fed into a rotary index table where they are automatically opened, loaded with wipes, liquid filled, QC’d, sealed and discharged.

Benefiting from top out-of-the-box Israeli engineering , the Citadel is made to service the jumbo rolls (J Series), standard wet wipes in flexible packs and refill markets (R Series).

Requiring just one person for operation, the Citadel affords flexible and efficient operation and offers exceptional ROI while reducing waste, cutting production times and maintaining high levels of product quality.

In addition, with a monoblock footprint of only 1.8m x 1.8m, the Citadel is capable of operating in very space-sensitive facilities.

And now for the Encore

SA’s team will also be on hand, at All4Pack, to introduce you to Citadel’s sister machine – the Encore complete monoblock solution for general doypack packaging.

From foodstuffs and beverages, to chemicals, detergents, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, ENCORE is a
revolutionary one-stop-shop monoblock for all of your doypack packaging needs.

Shemesh Automation’s INDUSTRY 4.0 READY Encore monoblock automatically feeds, auger fills, liquid
fills, seals and QC’s Doypacks at speeds of up to 30ppm or 60ppm,
