Aside from the obvious good looks and sturdy appearance of the Signature, the mechanics are well done and the structure is sound. The Signature is every bit as good or better than the more “traditional” brands I had become accustomed to over the years.”

AIM exclusively offers the Signature Series of folding carton machinery. All models are designed to meet and exceed the tough demands of today’s converting applications. With over 35 years of folding carton industry experience, AIM has developed an industry-leading series of folder gluers, the Signature Series of folder gluers. Signature folder gluers easily produce an amazing variety of cartons. Signature’s standard and customized tooling evolves each Signature folder gluer into a truly multi-functional production system. While each Signature model is designed for a maximum carton size or width, Signature’s inherent versatility eliminates the need for multiple machines. From our simple straight line Compact to our High Speed Elite folder gluer, Signature has the model to meet your needs.
High Performance Feeder Section
The heart of the folding process is accurate carton spacing and reliable carton flow. Signature accomplishes this through a variety of integrated components. The Signature feeder system requires no tools for setup and blank spacing is precisely controlled by a simple one-dial adjustment. Individually adjustable vacuum and vibration belts ensure accurate, reliable carton spacing and flow.
Servo-Controlled Backfold System
AIM’s innovative solution to meet the increased demands for greater productivity converting 4+6 corner cartons. Signature’s programmable AC servo drive technology along with backfold finger tooling takes reliable 4+6 corner productivity to a new level. Complete backfold data is supplied at one operator control center via a color LCD touch-screen, used for programming and storing up to 99 different jobs into memory for easy recall.
Convenient Operator Stations
Strategically located operator stations allow for quicker make readies. The heavy-duty LCD touch-screen control center displays precise production –rate data such as carton speed, belt speeds, speeds-per-hour and batch counts. Jam detection, E-stop details and low level machine diagnostics are also displayed and monitored.
Reliable carton support is provided throughout each machine. Each section-to-section transfer is kept in precise alignment with lead-in “nip point” adjustability. Multi-carrier construction also provides for greater tool/device mounting locations, ultimately improving overall versatility and reliability throughout the folding process.
Proven and Rugged AC Drive Systems
Highly accurate motion-control systems use the latest AC servo and adjustable frequency drive platforms. The use of a single PLC unit eliminates numerous, redundant relays. All AC motors are continuous duty, thermally protected, brush-less design, further eliminating routine maintenance and downtime. All controls are housed in a roomy, dust-tight NEMA 12 enclosure, ensuring long component life and ease of maintenance.
Extensive Carton Range
Signature folder gluers easily produce an amazing variety of cartons. Operator creativity along with standard and customized tooling, evolves each Signature folder gluer into a truly multi-functional production system. While each Signature model is designed for a maximum carton width, the inherent versatility eliminates the need for multiple machines.
