DES PLAINES, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–At Pack Expo 2017 Las Vegas, Cloud Packaging Solutions unveiled the next evolution in stand-up pouch technology, CloudTRAC. CloudTRAC is the industry’s first one-touch, auto-changeover, servo-driven stand-up, resealable pouch (SURP) machine. Five years in development, CloudTRAC sets new speed, performance, efficiency, and quality benchmarks in SURP production equipment.
The leader in high-speed pouch and pod technology, CloudTRAC represents the next generation of horizontal SURP technology. Mechanical controls and expensive, time-wasting manual change-overs are replaced by one-touch auto-changeovers, reducing downtime and increasing efficiency. The fully servo-driven machine eliminates chains, creating a near maintenance-free high-speed platform.
“We began with a new chassis design and then re-imagined the entire SURP cycle, keeping the best and getting rid of the rest,” said Mike Werner, VP and general manager of Cloud. “In an industry awash in me-too machines chained to the past, our chain-free, servo-driven CloudTRAC enables zero-time auto-changeovers, a 2X speed increase, recipe-based controls, while also improving quality and lowering scrap. Our customers see this as a game-changing technology.”
CloudTRAC joins Cloud’s complete line of stand-up pouch machines, ranging from entry-level platforms to high-speed continuous motion HFFS machines. The company sees CloudTRAC as the first in a family of servo-driven platforms that produce fresh competitive advantage for food and CPG companies.
“We have followed CloudTRAC development and are looking forward to adding CloudTRAC to our enterprise,” said Dwayne Hughes, SVP of Hearthside Foods. “We have multiple Cloud high-speed machines today and see CloudTRAC as a platform to lower our workforce requirements, decrease changeover times, and significantly increase volume. It’s a home run.”
