Partition Inserter SF-400 UHS

Industry proven, unmatched performance.


Rock solid performance

The SF-400 UHS has become the go-to choice for partition inserting because it provides reliable, consistent performance throughout its speed range on the full array of accepted partition styles. Two partitions are opened simultaneously, allowing higher speed throughput with each machine cycle. At the core of this performance is a design that ensures the paper is controlled 100% of the time. Partitions are not flipped open or dropped into cases. Opposing sets of vacuum arms open the partition, place it into the waiting case via a servo-controlled inserter head, and it is only released when placed correctly into the case. For RSC cases, major and minor flaps are controlled by gates to ensure reliable insertions.

For glued-in partitions, case compression ensures a consistently high-quality glue joint.

Compatible with a wide array of partitions

The SF-400 UHS stands apart not only in speed and reliability, but in the wide array of partition styles the machine can handle—Multi-cell, Air cell, Z-partition, glued-in A-partition and everything in between—in solid fiber or corrugated, shoulder height or mixed heights, in all locking styles.

Wayne Automation Partition Inserters have a proven track record of performance that has made us the leader in partition handling.

Fast in production, fast in changeover

Changeover between partition styles can be accomplished in mere minutes with a single operator. Available T-Tooling allows you to dramatically shrink changeover time with preset partition opener arms that are rapidly exchanged by a single person using the included lift cart. Motorized adjustments are available for magazine and conveyor settings, allowing the operator to make one-touch adjustments from the operator control station.

Big performance, small maintenance

Speed is nothing if your machine is down for lengthy maintenance and repair cycles. The SF-400 UHS has been designed to make maintenance quick and easy. Highly reliable Allen Bradley servo drives and motors provide trouble-free operation for the case exchange partition transport and inserter motion. Available automatic grease pumps and airline lubricators provide on-the-go lubrication while the machine runs. Available Total Planned Maintenance (TPM) provides notification and acknowledgement of routine maintenance and provides pictures and instructions of the maintenance task via the color touch screen HMI.

Safety, our best performance feature

Standard on the SF-400 UHS are Lexan doors equipped with anti-intrusion switches that give you an unobstructed view of the machine function. The vertical travelling inserter head is equipped with redundant safety systems, including a pneumatic rotary brake, rod clamp, and a resistive braking module to ensure completely safe entry into the machine when stopped. Remote emergency and cycle stop stations are located around the machine and the status is displayed on the main operator panel.
