Tackling the problem of handling multiple tubes having odd shapes and sizes, the co. has developed automatic machines to invert and package them for distribution. Tube 90 and Tube 180 are said to be offset, in-line, dedicated shrink multipacking systems. The machines consist of a single- or dual-lane infeed/collator with a single- or dual-lane wrapper/tunnel. Reportedly eliminating the need for boxes and dividers and wrapping virtually any configuration of tubes, the stainless-steel machines are said to be easy to operate from a touchscreen interface with self-monitoring diagnostics.
