Ascolite Machines

Ascolite MachinesMark 6 the practical semi automatic button wrapping machine for small to middle production size. This modern classic of button wrapping machines has already secured billions of buttons. Our standard factory model for small to medium size production capacities. Wraps the button shank of all kinds of garments such as men’s-, ladies-, outerwear and uniforms. A must for every sampling department! The Mark 6 is a small and very reliable button wrapping machine. The unique Ascolite button wrapping process enables any type of button to be secured. The heating fork can be positioned as desired. The inbuilt seal control system ensures that every button is securely sealed by the operator. Optical and sonic indicators signal the optimal seal time. Productivity: 500 buttons/hour

Ascolite MachinesMark 11 the world-wide best-seller fully automatic button wrapping machine for high speed and large volume. The machine wraps and secures any type of button at high speed and with constant precision. Wrapping, sealing and finishing the button shank only takes about one second. The economical use of filament (saves up to 40% when compared to Mk.6) and the computer controlled process make this machine ideally suited for all large volume producers.
The machine has three programs which can be preset, enabling fast switching from one shank style to another. Each program offers the possibility to store the desired button shank type including special settings for long shanks (wrap variation, double covering) and for blazer type shank buttons. If the machine is positioned next to a sewing machine the same operator can both sew on the button and secure it at the same workplace. Productivity: 1500 buttons/hour
