The renowned Jenton range of banding machines has been expanded by the addition of the 2018 Bandit® 180-30 benchtop paper banding machine. With a footprint approximately the size of a sheet of A4 paper, there can be few packing/finishing areas without space for the new Bandit machines launched in June by Jenton. The new machines are designed to simply bundle stacks of printed materials, cash, small cartons and multipacks together with securely sealed paper bands. Paper is 30mm wide and can be supplied in brown, white or custom printed. Packs up to 180mm wide can be accommodated.
Improvements for 2018 include electronically adjustable heater temperature (with display) and sealing dwell time which allows the Bandit to be set-up to be used with a variety of paper sources and materials.
“We’re really pleased with this new machine,” says Richard Little, MD of Jenton, “Users will be familiar with the archless method of operation, thus avoiding the possibility of paper jams in guides and runners but the extra flexibility of stable temperature and dwell control is a significant improvement in this entry level machine.” Bandit machines are used, in addition to bundling, for tamper evidence, labelling and multipack/BOGOF applications too.
Jenton hold a stock of these and other larger and more automated machines, many of which are available for hire. As machine manufacturers, Jenton can add value to banders with various forms of stands, benches and automation and prospective (and existing) customers are always welcome to visit their Whitchurch showroom to try machines and discuss particular projects.
