Compatibilities of XO Ends

In today‘s beverage industry, there are two different technologies of debagging:

 

 

TECHNOLOGY 1: MANUAL DEBAGGING

Definition: the machine operator opens each sleeve manually, and either puts it in a V-chute, or into a vertical pocket holder and then pulls off the sleeve by hand. The feeding of the ends to the seamer works by gravity (simple V-chute) or via a lid pusher.

TECHNOLOGY 2: AUTOMATIC DEBAGGING

Definition: the machine operator puts the sleeves on a storage table and the debagger automatically cuts and removes the sleeves, then feeds the ends to the feeding line, ready for the seamer.

 

 

XO Ends are compatible with manual and automatic debagger technologies.

XO Ends run on most of the installed equipment of the main suppliers, but usually minor upgrades are necessary. Upgrade kits for the most common debaggers are available from stock and free of charge to XO customers. Please contact Xolution GmbH for further information.

 

Speed Challenge

An XO sleeve will come with roughly 200 XO Ends instead of the more common 600 SOT/LOT shells. Therefore, the operator or the automatic debagger must load 3 times the number of sleeves in the same time frame to maintain the filling speed. On the next page there is an outline of different debagging equipment and the possible filling line speeds when running XO ends. All Information is based on more than 5 years experience collected from production runs all over the world.
