Hudson-Sharp has announced that its innovative high speed Apollo wicketer is now available globally.
A leader in the making of bag converting equipment, Hudson-Sharp officially launched the Apollo in Europe in October 2019 at the K2019 show, with live demonstrations showcasing its quick changeover features, advanced automation, enhanced ergonomics and user interface, and high speed capabilities. Since then, four customers in Europe already have purchased this new machine.
Additional benefits for Apollo customers include reduced scrap rates and the ability to collect improvement metrics for production decisions, along with industry 4.0 smart features, such as remote real time monitoring capabilities, machine diagnostics and SMS notifications.
‘We are really looking forward to offering the Apollo worldwide,’ said Kip Boie, director of Sales for PCMC. ‘This wicketer will be a tremendous tool for our customers, because it incorporates the speed and smart features they have been requesting. We are excited that we can partner with them in providing an innovative solution.’
