The Optic M1 poly bundler will make its debut in 2023 and will be Infinity’s most advanced bundler yet. The Optic M1 can produce a wide range of bundle configurations at high speed, giving it the versatility and speed to disrupt the automated tissue packaging market.

The flight bars featured on the Optic M1 are synchronized with the indexer, enabling maximum take over speed. While the additional flight bar on the Optic M1 is the perfect tool for stacked, “core up” roll configurations, to allow for further versatility, the second flight bar can be removed and an upender can be added.

The upender enables the machine to bundle rolls stacked on the ends so that the Optic M1 can package a vast array of configurations between the two roll stack orientations. Furthermore, both the second flight bar and the upender units are on casters allowing for quick and easy swaps between the two. The poly unwind on the Optic M1 offers a vast array of features to simplify production.

A global vision, focused on tissue and hygiene packaging solutions

The unwind is servo driven which enables the poly position to be adjusted more easily, and the poly is loaded on a pull-out cart to take the hassle out of loading.

Combine this with overall improved accessibility and optional auto splice and the poly unwind on the Optic M1 sets the new industry standard. Infinity engineers have raised the bar for bundle quality as a vacuum lance comes standard on the Optic M1. Located on the seal jaw, the vacuum lance sucks out excess air from the bundle, ensuring the poly is crisp and tight every time.

Reducing the time and cost of machine maintenance was a key area of focus for Infinity engineers while designing the Optic M1. This has resulted in a machine with very few wear parts and many automatic adjustment features. The only manual lubrication axes are the top/bottom seal jaw, cassette width adjustment and the cassette raise/lower, all bearing are lubed for life.

The only wear parts of the machine are the indexer belts, cassette/flight bar timing belts and seal wire. The Optic M1 also features only one valve bank with ethernet feedback, and only three manual adjustments. Most adjustments on the Optic M1 are done automatically by utilizing adjustment motors. A defining feature of the Optic M1, that truly sets it apart from other bundlers on the market is its modular capability.

Since 2005, Infinity has manufactured bundlers with its industry original Infusion modular system. Designed to overcome the limitations of fixed linear machines, the Infusion modular system allows for different machine units, such as a bundler, bagger or casepacker to be attached to a common infeed module via fixed docking stations. This process can be completed in under a half hour and gives customers the ability to reduce their capital investment and more efficiently utilize floor space.

Accessibility was of the upmost priority in the design of the Optic M1. The pusher on the machine is on a vertical adjustment, which keeps the working height of the machine low, while also increasing the number of pack configurations the machine is capable of. The vertical adjustment also allows for a simplified change to a casepacker module if desired. The modules on the machine feature a French door design, which increases ease of access to machine components, and the discharge of the Optic M1 features a tip down exit gate, improving worker mobility around the machine.

Featuring a more accessible design, versatile performance and an increased emphasis on modularity, the Optic M1 poly bundler is Infinity’s most advanced poly bundler yet. Look no further because the future of packaging is staring you in the face.
