NORTH FALMOUTH, MA— Teledyne TapTone, a leading industry supplier of inspection and rejection systems for the food, beverage, and household chemical markets, will debut its new Heavy Duty (HD) Ram Rejector at the upcoming PackExpo International in Chicago (October 14-17, 2018) to complement its existing line of rejecting and laning systems.

The new TapTone HD Ram pneumatic rejectors provide reliable rejection up to 2,000 containers per minute (product and application dependent).

Available with a fixed stroke length of 3-inch (76mm), 1-inch (25mm) or 0.5-inch (12mm), the rejectors require only a standard air supply and come complete with a filter/regulator. The HD Ram Rejector is the first in a new line of rejectors featuring an oil-free cylinder design with a NEMA 4X IP65 environmental rating.

The rejectors are actuated by a 24-volt reject pulse supplied by any of TapTone’s inspection system or third party systems. Designed for tight production spaces, these rejectors can be conveyor or floor mounted and can withstand high-pressure wash down.

Some of the additional design enhancements incorporated into the new HD Ram Rejector include, a heavier duty base plate and cover resulting in reduced vibration with additional soundproofing for quieter operation. The new design also incorporates a non-rotating cylinder for longer life and increased cycle counts, without the need for lubrication.

PackExpo International will be held in Chicago October 14-17, 2018 at McCormick Place. The event is the largest packaging and processing show in North America and is held every other year capturing an international audience.

Teledyne TapTone will be located in South Hall in booth # S-4126.
