Backboard Affixing Machine

Yokohama City's Nippon Automatic Fine Machinery develops and manufactures a machine for affixing a backboard, used in suspending products displayed in drugstores and other stores, onto product boxes.

"This machine can affix 35 backboards in one minute. The speed of this machine designed for pharmaceutical manufacturers is set at 35 per minute, but another machine for a different manufacturer that has already been ordered is capable of 90 backboards per minute. The speed output is tailored according to the customer's daily total production output. "

Because oftentimes design and development of this type of machine is done based on an original idea thought of by the designer, until now these machines have not been available on the market. Nippon Automatic Fine Machinery builds all of these machines on a custom made basis taking into consideration factors such as user production capacity requirements and installation space.

"Our box packing machines are also sold overseas, and we have many customers. Box packing machines, which are installed upstream of backboard affixing machines, are our company's specialty, so we would be very happy if accessory equipment such as the backboard affixing machine leads to further sales of our box packing machines. "

Nippon Automatic Fine Machinery also manufactures other machinery such as for affixing labels to plastic and glass bottles. Interest in the backboard affixing machine is coming primarily from the pharmaceutical industry. However, because there are numerous products suspended and displayed even in convenience stores, moving forward the company aims to expand sales of this machine to other manufacturers such as foodstuffs manufacturers.
