Features and Benefits

Designed for top performance and low maintenance

A tubular steel machine frame provides stability and strength while eliminating catchpoints for dust accumulation, to maintain cleanliness for food plant requirements. All components that contact the product are constructed of stainless steel for smooth and sanitary product handling. Maintenance requirements are minimized with maintenance-free sealed bearings, permanently lubricated air cylinders, air inlet regulator, and Venturi vacuum system.

Gentle product handling

Numerous innovative features ensure gentle loading and smooth product handling. Harmonic motion drive is utilized to transfer the tray from loading to sealing to ensure the stability of each product load. Steel folding arms securely square and seal each tray around the product load, for tight-pack trays that palletize well.

Safeguards switch the packer to standby mode if the tray or product supply is interrupted, and resume normal operation when the supply returns. Sensors monitor container feed, positioning, and tray sealing to maintain high speed performance.

Low level, easy-load tray magazine

Operation is simplified with a low-level, easy to load tray magazine, which may be refilled at any time during tray packing operation. The magazine feeds from the top of the stack, for smooth, interrupted tray supply, and trays are transported by heavy, chain-mounted flight lugs for positive placement through loading and sealing.

Versatile for changing requirements

This traypacker accumulates and packs rigid and semi-rigid containers, glass and plastic bottles and jars, chipboard and shrink-wrapped cartons, composite, paperboard, and aseptic containers into display, half height and full height corrugated trays.
