The CTE450 is also highly energy-efficient, compact and incorporates full Newman ‘validation-friendly’ specifications.

At the infeed, cartons are separated, held between top and bottom belts, past the Print and Inspect station where Serialised codes can be printed and then verified by a Vision system. Cartons are then transported past two stepper motor-driven label stations. Labels are dispensed on to the overhanging vertical faces of the carton and applied with a roller. Airplane and reverse tuck formats can be accommodated. Cartons proceed to the sensing station where sensors detect label presence prior to wipe down. Both labels must be present for a carton to be accepted; if not, it is ejected into a secure reject area

Program Your Torque Tester and Get Two Peak Values?

If you would like to program your torque tester and be able to get two distinctive peak torque values (thread break torque and Tamper Evident Band (TEB) break torque), the ST-120S or the ST-S3 torque testers can be programmed as follows:

  1. Associate a product name with the test recipe.
  2. Set the test mode to “Release”.
  3. Set the cycle count to 2. In the first cycle, the machine will measure the peak of the thread break. In the second cycle, the machine will measure the peak of the tamper-evident band (TEB) break.
  4. On the second “Test Setting” screen, set the “rotation speed” to 20rpm, the “release torque limit” to 20lbfin, the “starting torque” to 10%, the “torque ramp” to 30s, and the “method” to the rotation.
  5. Set the “rotation limit” to 250 degrees. Starting with a tight cap (applied torque >10lbfin), the thread break torque can be measured under 30 degrees. However, there is a single rotation limit setting, so the torque limit should be set reasonably close to the peak of the TEB break torque. After a few experimental cycles, the desired rotation limit is 200-250 degrees.
  6. To give the operator time for manually documenting the thread break (1st cycle), go in the Setup/Timers submenu and set the “New Cycle” delay to 5s.
  7. Alternatively, when a computer is capturing data from the machine the new cycle delay can be set to 00:00:50 (500ms).

TRAINING AS A RESOURCE

Over the past few years, Fedegari has shown constant commitment to formation and growth, investing and offering opportunities to young people from Pavia’s area and beyond.

In fact, the company opens its doors to youngsters, proposing wide and different possibilities for formation and training, with the aim of reaching and offering the highest levels of quality and at the same time guaranteeing participants a preparation for both a possible future and inside the company and for a different working perspective in Pavia’s territory in general.

On this basis Fedegari participates and takes part in projects, collaborations and activities aimed at discovering new talents, in order to give them the opportunity to learn about a business context in practical life through the aforementioned formation and training programs.

Through participation in events such as the career day of the University of Pavia, which allow Fedegari to discover, learn and get in touch with new figures, it is possible to set in motion a continuous revolution in which young ones are the main protagonists.

Fedegari has always been very keen on young people and considers their education a fundamental resource for the territory its-self, especially in such a richly international context where it risks being lost.

During the annual Career Day of the University of Pavia, which falls in the month of May, Fedegari presents itself to the students of the various faculties of the University, who, if interested, have the opportunity to leave their CV and thus establish a possible contact with the company.

Also of great importance for the company is the “school-work alternation” project agreed with the Technical Institute G. Cardano of Pavia, with which Fedegari has signed a 3-year collaboration. Thanks to this cooperation, annually, eight students will follow a training course that will accompany them during their last school year. During their time in the company the students will follow two paths: one focused on the welding process and one concerning 3D design techniques.

The ultimate goal of this process is, in addition to the training of students, to insert them and make them understand the mechanisms of a working reality and to explain them how the learnt productive processes intertwine in a generic business context.

Since training is one of the pillars of Fedegari, the company is committed to give its employees the possibility of combining work and school life, allowing them to carry out Masters and to continue with university studies, thus allowing everyone to satisfy your desire for knowledge.
