Infinity Machine & Engineering Corp. has further increased its footprint in the Asian tissue market as Ssangyong, a leading South Korean brand of hygienic products, purchased a full packaging line from Infinity for their facility in Jochiwon.

Infinity previously sold a full packaging line to South Korean hygienic products brand Monalisa. After the successful installation and operation of this line, Ssangyong was confident in investing in the proven Infinity machinery.

The Ssangyong packaging line features Infinity’s Eclipse T4 multipack poly wrapper, a conveyor with multiple product manipulation devices, and an EPXL poly bundler. All the line’s machinery is built with Infinity’s signature robust steel framing, ensuring that the line will have the durability to last 20+ years.

Infinity’s EPXL poly bundler features a liner servo movement knife and seal jaw, allowing the EPXL to correct misalignments and run registration accurately. The wide frame of the EPXL also allows for wide-format packs, which is essential for the Ssangyong line. Other key features on the EPXL include an integrated diverter and flight bar for simplified product collation, and an automatic poly pull-out cart for safe poly loading.

The Infinity Eclipse T4 multipack wrapper was selected by Ssangyong in large part due to its ability to run a wide range of product configurations. The infeed of the wrapper can run four to five lanes and the wrapper can produce packs five and six rolls deep.

The conveyor system for the Ssangyong line contains multiple product manipulation devices including a Star Wheel capable of unending product at high speeds, an Itapack Handle applicator, and an Infinity Twist-Tipper. Infinity Twist Tippers can tip bundles 90 degrees or be put into a flat position for by-pass via adjustment handwheel. These product manipulation devices will give Ssangyong maximum versatility for bundle pack configurations.

Representatives from Ssangyong offered comprehensive customer input throughout the project and were present for an in-person machine check-out at infinity’s Green Bay, USA facility. Ssangyong’s investment in Infinity machinery ensures they will be able to keep pace with the industry’s growth and adapt to new trends in tissue packaging. The Ssangyong line is set to be installed and in production by the end of July 2022.
