Machine Model for Improvement

Pemco packaging machine Model 135, 135HS

Description of Improvement

This upgrade is part of the Technical Improvement Program (TIP); the purpose is to improve the elevator guiding mechanism to allow more consistent stack handling by the elevator.

This is achieved by installing rack-and-pinion elevator guide system. This guide system also uses cam followers to ensure consistent elevator movement. This is very critical to ensure that the stack is parallel to the discharge surface. 

A shaft with pinion gear mounted on each end rides on the gear rack allowing the elevator to move up and down. Cam followers riding on wear plates capture the shaft assembly in place. Additional side guards are also provided as part of this upgrade. This upgrade also includes a set of emitter and receiver photo eyes to replace the existing set.

These smaller sizes of eyes are necessary to work with the new elevator guide mechanism.


  • Reduces jams on the elevator
  • More consistent stack appearance and handling into the case packer
  • Reduces downtime and maintenance

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.
