Machine Model for Improvement

Pemco packaging machine Model 34, 36, 37, 38

Description of Improvement

This upgrade is part of the Technical Improvement Program (TIP); it converts the machine from internal glue sealing

to external glue sealing from the top.

A new external girth glue gun is assembled prior to the feednip rollers. The gear rack is used to position the glue gun to achieve the desired stripe position on the wrapping sheet. As the sheet starts to feed, the glue gun is activated along with the cooling air gun. The cooling air gun is critical to the process to decrease the glue temperature prior to going into the feednip to ensure no contamination.

Once the ream is wrapped, the girth seal conveyor reheats the glue as the ream goes through it and seals the ream shut.


  • Allows same wrapping material to be used on left-hand and right-hand machines (reduction in inventory of rolls)
  • Better handling during folding and wrapping
  • Less glue contamination during the folding sequence

A sheeter that we had planned especially for our lightweight specialty papers has become an all-round smart sheeter that can process even heavy grammages up to 300 gsm with maximum cutting accuracy.
