EASY2 Change - Autopilot to Success

The EASY2 Change automation system was the main W&H attraction at K 2022. Running live demos three times daily, EASY2 Change showed job changeovers, with just one operator, all in under 10 minutes.

What makes EASY2 Change different?

To start with, the system offers clear guidance, and sophisticated automation that together simplify the process for the operator. The intuitive dashboard not only guides the machine operator through every step of a changeover, but also provides complete transparency and control throughout the process.

Using innovative technology, the bubble shape, stability, and the frost line are all visible on the dashboard. This visual aid assists the operator, quickly bringing the bubble to the perfect shape to produce top quality and reproducible films.

The integrated automation systems include the ARCTIS II air ring, along with features from EASY Change, EASY Wind, TURBOCLEAN and Profile Booster. With so much automation, the number of clicks required by an operator are reduced by 70%. This translates into job changes being twice as fast.
