Machine Model for Improvement

Pemco packaging machine Model 135, 135HS

Description of Improvement

The purpose of this upgrade (it’s part of the Technical Improvement Program [TIP]) is to allow the transfer pusher to return to home position faster, to start the next elevator cycle quicker.

This is achieved by installing a new staging area (dead plate). This is especially critical on doubles mode where the first half of the log can be staged on the dead plate while the second half is being built. This reduces the likelihood of the reams backlogging on the infeed conveyor. This upgrade includes a new elevator plate, stop fingers, dead plate extension fingers, and elevator plate stiffeners. A new limit switch is supplied to control the timing of the transfer pusher, so it returns to the home position after the reams are staged on the dead plate.


  • Reduced cycle time of the transfer pusher in “doubles” mode
  • Reduces the changes of backlog due to increased cycle time of the transfer pusher
  • Improves the machine’s ability to operate at higher speeds in all modes

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.
