Alliance Machine Systems International, LLC is a global leader in innovative products that enhance the efficiency and performance of the packaging industry. Alliance has contracted our design team for a project that will continue this tradition. The purpose of the project is to design a device that can rotate cardboard bundles without stopping them as they move through the packaging process.
This will result in an increased processing capability for factories that utilize this product. There are currently no devices on the market that can rotate bundles without the use of a conveyor and without stopping the bundle’s forward progress. The project will conclude with a working prototype to go along with a final report detailing the design.
