Analysis of Common Problems in Film Rolls for Automatic Packaging Machines

At present, the application of automatic packaging machines is becoming more and more popular, especially in the detergent, cosmetics, food, pharmaceutical and other industries. This article, in conjunction with the practical application of our company, talks about the common problems when using plastic packaging film on automatic packaging machines, hoping to cause the attention of film roll suppliers.

1, uneven tension
Uneven film tension is usually manifested by the inner layer of the film roll being too tight and the outer layer being slack. If the film roll is used on the automatic packaging machine, the operation of the packaging machine will be uncertain, and the bag size will be uneven, the film is offset, and the edge banding deviation is too large, so that the packaged product does not meet the quality requirements. Therefore, the film roll product having such a defect is often subjected to a return process.

The uneven tension of the film roll is mainly caused by the unbalanced tension between the film roll and the unwinding at the time of slitting. Although most of the film slitting machines have tension control devices to ensure the slitting quality of the film roll, sometimes the film is cut due to many factors such as operation reasons, equipment reasons, and too much difference in size and weight of the incoming and outgoing rolls. Uneven tension problems still occur. Therefore, it is necessary to carefully inspect and adjust the equipment to ensure that the film roll tension is balanced.

2, the end face is not flat
Generally, the end face of the film roll is required to be smooth and uneven, and if the unevenness exceeds 2 mm, it is judged to be a non-conforming product, and it is usually rejected. Film rolls with uneven end faces can also cause unstable operation of the automatic packaging machine, offset of the film, and excessive deviation of the edge banding.

The main reasons for the unevenness of the film roll end face are: unstable operation of the slitting equipment, uneven thickness of the film, uneven tension between the inlet and outlet rolls, etc., which can be checked and adjusted accordingly.

3, the wave surface
The wavy surface means that the surface of the film roll is not flat and wavy. This quality defect will also directly affect the running performance of the film roll on the automatic packaging machine, and affect the quality of the zui final packaging product, such as the tensile properties of the packaging material, the sealing strength is deteriorated, the printing pattern, the deformation of the forming bag, and the like. If this quality defect is very obvious, such a film roll cannot be used on an automatic packaging machine.

4, the cutting deviation is too large
It is usually required that the slitting deviation of the film roll is controlled within 2 to 3 mm. The excessive deviation of the slitting affects the overall effect of the formed bag, such as offset of the pattern position, incompleteness, and asymmetry of the formed bag.

5, poor joint quality
Joint quality is generally a requirement for the number of joints, joint quality and joint designation.

Generally, the number of membrane coil joints is required to be 90% of the number of membrane coil joints less than one, and 10% of the number of membrane coil joints is less than two. When the film roll diameter is greater than 900 mm, the number of joints is required to be: 90% of the number of film roll joints is less than 3, and 10% of the number of film roll joints may be 4 to 5.

The film roll joint should be flat, smooth and firm, and should not overlap and overlap. The joint position is good in the middle of the two patterns, and the adhesive tape should not be too thick, otherwise the film will be stuck, the film will be broken and the machine will stop, which will affect the normal operation of the automatic packaging machine. run. Moreover, the joints should be clearly marked for inspection, handling and handling.

6, core deformation
The deformation of the core causes the film roll to not be properly installed on the film roll holder of the automatic packaging machine. The main reason for the deformation of the film winding core is that the core of the storage and transportation is damaged, the tension of the film is too large, the core is crushed, the core quality is poor, and the strength is low. For film rolls with a core deformation, it is usually returned to the supplier for rewinding and replacement of the core.

7, the film roll direction is wrong
Most automatic packaging machines have certain requirements on the film exit direction of the film roll, such as whether the bottom end is first out or the top end first, which is mainly determined by the structure of the packaging machine and the design of the packaging product decoration pattern. If the film roll is in the wrong direction, it needs to be re-rolled. Usually users have clear requirements in the film quality standard, which is rarely seen under normal circumstances.

8, the number of bags is insufficient
Usually, the film roll is measured in length, such as kilometer/roll. The specific value depends mainly on the large outer diameter and load capacity of the film roll.

Both the supply and demand sides pay more attention to the number of film roll bags. Most users must check the film roll consumption index. In addition, there is no good method for accurate measurement inspection when the film roll is accepted and accepted. Therefore, when the number of bags is insufficient, the two sides often cause both sides. The dispute is usually resolved through negotiation.

9, product damage
Product damage occurs mostly at the stage of cutting completion to delivery, mainly including film roll damage (such as scratches, tears, holes), film roll contamination, damage to the outer package (damage, water spray, pollution).

10, the product label is incomplete
The film roll should have a clear and complete product mark. The main contents should include: product name, specification, package quantity, order number, production date, quality and supplier information. This is mainly to meet the needs of delivery acceptance, storage and delivery, production use, quality tracking, etc., to avoid wrong delivery and use.

Waist Heating Pad is similar to regular Heating Pad, but normally used specifically to relieve pains caused to human waist.

It is with a detachable controller with 4 temperature settings as option.

It will shut off automatically after 2 hours for the sake of safety.

Besides, the internal heating element also has the function of overheating protection, to ensure safety when people use it.
