American International Machinery Becomes Authorized Distributor for Tunkers Packing System

American International Machinery, Inc. (AIM), the exclusive supplier for the Signature brand of converting equipment for the paperboard and corrugated industries, announces they have partnered with Tünkers as the authorized distributor in North America for their semi-automatic packaging system, the FAS 480.

The FAS 480 is designed for easy maneuverability and can be used on any folder gluer machine. It has an independent electric drive allowing operators to control the carton flow speed directly from the packaging machine itself. The FAS 480 turns the carton to the right or left as it exits the gluer for easier packaging by the operator, increasing output by up to 50 percent.

The FAS 480 supports all standard folding boxes of solid board, E-Flute, and B-Flute including straight line, 4&6 corner, and crash-lock cartons. It can handle boxes with a minimum size of 40mm up to a maximum of 420mm wide by 480mm long.

“We are very pleased to partner with Tünkers, a second generation, family owned company that values innovation and customer needs just as we do,” stated Kevin Koplin, managing director for AIM. “The FAS 480 is an efficient and reliable semi automatic packer that will be a fantastic option for many of our customers looking to increase productivity on existing equipment.”

AIM technicians can perform service and maintenance functions on the FAS 480 for customers in North America. For more information, visit www.aim-inc.net.
