Adelco has taken on the UK distribution of Thermotron, a manufacturer of automatic packing machinery. The range includes folding, bagging, stacking and sealing machines that are either modular or complete in design so as to suit any company’s requirements.

The STP1000 Folding Machine is designed to fold various types and sizes of ready-made garments. It is intended for single-person operation and has a maximum production capacity is 5,500 garments per eight hours. The new PV40 Bagging Machine automatically bags garments from the STP1000 – without the need for an additional operator – in polyethylene bags, while the NT50 Stacking Machine automatically stacks folded garments as they come from the STP1000. The KL55 Sealing Machine automatically seals the bags.

The automatic FX23 Folding Machine is a low cost, semi-automatic folder that functions independently and is designed to fold items such as T-shirts and sweatshirts.

According to Adelco, Thermotron’s machines are “internationally recognised for their innovation and quality”. It added: “Unsurprisingly, we have had a lot of interest in these products already due to their quality, modular design and price point.”
