Hot Stamper

Our automatic hot stamper is designed to hot stamp child safety warning labels on to 11” and 12” round pails, as well as square or rectangular pails. The pail is oriented by means of a servo motor and offset in the stamping area. Two different labels can be placed at any offset, and a flame treating station is included. All our hot stampers can be switched between different modes via an easy to use HMI touch screen.

Single Head Hot Stamper

Our standard single head hot stamper. It’s available with options to add an integrated UN leak tester / pail diverter and square/rectangular pail orientation with actuated flame treatment.

Dual Head Hot Stamper

Hot stamper with two stamp heads that can stamp simultaneously. The options of an integrated UN leak tester / pail diverter and square/rectangular pail orientation with actuated flame treatment is available on this model.

Standard Features

Flamer

Flame treatment can be enabled and disabled via the HMI touch screen. Also, duration and rotation speed are adjustable via the HMI touch screen. Includes a flame out sensor. If the burner fails to ignite, the pail is held back and warning screen appears.

Hot Stamping

The pail is lifted to the stamping head, then oriented, then stamped. The stamp location can be offset (adjustable to 360 degrees). Temperature control and hot stamp parameters are controlled via the HMI touch screen. When the foil is running low and when the foil has run out, a sensor will indicate this with a warning.

Safety Features

  • Electrically and pneumatically interlocked guard compliant with OSHA
  • Strobe light when machine stops and is in bypass mode
  • Equipment CSA inspected

Pail Processing Cell

A completely integrated pail processing cell. The system starts with the standard MAS single head or dual head hot stamper and integrates stations into the machine. All stations parameters can be set by means of an HMI touch screen and each station can be enabled or disabled. These options are listed below. We can tailor the processing cell to your requirements. Advantages of the pail cell are that it can save space, is easily moved on casters and will not stamp pails that leak.

Pail Stretcher

Martin Automated Systems manufactures pail stretchers for both square and round pails. The pail stretchers are water-cooled, and the expanding jaws are machined from hard anodized aluminum or optional heat treated stainless tool steel and use Turcite bearings. Pail Stretcher units are highly effective at improving molding cycle time.

UN Leak Tester

The UN leak test option will check pails for small leaks. It monitors the pressure inside by inflating the pail to a pre-set test pressure and monitoring it for a pre-set time. The operator can adjust the leak tester settings from an easy to understand operator terminal.

Lip Flaming Attachment

The lip flaming attachment will flame treat the lip of the pail to ensure there are no plastic remnants.

Failed Pail Diversion

If a pail has failed the leak test station, it will be diverted to a rejection bin.

Pail Stacker

The stacker stacks pails to a maximum height of 48”.

Gravity Conveyor and Stack Accumulation

The conveyor moves the finished stacks into the stack accumulation, ready for packaging.

Optional Systems

Square/rectangular pail orientation with actuated flame treatment

Square/rectangular pail types are orientated to the handle mounting hole. The pails are then flame treated by a cam actuated flamer, which traces the shape of the pail.
This option provides more consistent flame treatment.

UN Leak Tester

The UN leak test option will check pails for small leaks. It monitors the pressure inside by inflating the pail to a pre-set test pressure and monitoring it for a pre-set time. The operator can adjust the leak tester settings from an easy to understand operator terminal.

Pail Lifter

The pail lifter takes the pails from the catcher and lifts them to the hot stamping machine. The pail lifter elevates pails from a lower conveyor up to the in-feed height of the hot stamping machine or other equipment.

Pail Stacker

The stacker takes the finished product and stack it to a maximum of 48”. The stacker can be tooled for different pail sizes. Also, handle or handle-lobe orientation.
