The DURAN Alius
The new benchmark for specialist folder gluers
Available in three sizes, 70, 90, 110, the Alius is fully servo driven with a top belt speed of 600m/min. It features intelligent set-up that calculates and automatically implements all machine settings from the carton design without operator involvement. It also stores all settings for future repeat work.
Duran has also developed its own machine screening system that allows the user to monitor production from external devices like a tablet or mobile phone. Compatible with Industry 4.0, Alius shares data via its OPC UA platform which allows its current production to be screened from any web browser.
Machine screens include operator help content for easy troubleshooting. It also includes a continuous factory link for remote operator support when required. The new Alius also offers easy integration with other ancillary systems.
. Given its maximum speed of 600m/minute, it demands integration with pre-feeders and fully-automated packers to run this gluer at its full capacity. In addition to its regular pre-feeder, Duran also offers a turn-over pre-feeder as well as the well proven Omega Pack.
The contemporary design of the Alius gluers is based on a 30mm solid steel frame and easy set-up features that were designed with input from Duran’s technical team combining their worldwide experience.
