Delkor Systems, one the world's premier manufacturers of top-load cartoning machinery, has been awarded a new U.S. government patent for its new Intelligent Positioning Technology for carton closing. According to Dale Anderson, president and CEO of Delkor Systems, Inc., "We are very excited about this important breakthrough by our Engineering team. Delkor Engineering were the first in the world to figure out how to electronically analyze each carton for alignment and, if a deviation is detected, our new technology can make the precise correction on an individual carton basis at speeds up to 150 cartons per minute. Not only does Intelligent Positioning technology ensure that our customers are able to close near-perfect cartons each and every time, but it also reduces the number of parts and the machinery footprint by 35% over traditional carton closes."
