Tray packer

Article-Tray packer

Developed to eliminate soft-bottle bridging and to remove gaps that compromise pack-pattern accuracy and continuous product flow is the Contour™ T-75 tray packer with Smartrak™ steady-stream infeed. The co. says the packer's patented, pinless metering unit collates products at speeds 50-percent faster than traditional metering and eliminates the product damage sometimes caused by metering pins, cutting operating costs. Rated to 75 cycles/min, the packer is said to easily handle a variety of configurations without lengthy changeovers, and features a 10-ft ergonomic tray-blank magazine and open design with gull-wing guarding.
