Standard-Knapp’s 939S Versatron soft catch servo packer with a new lowering head module is ideal for packers looking for solutions gentler than drop packing for their more fragile “green” containers, the company says. The 939S Versatron includes technology that enables packers to handle the thinner, lightweight and more fragile glass containers being used in the move towards greener, more sustainable packaging. The lowering head module can pick up bottles and other containers and carry them to the packing area, where they can be packed in the case without dropping. The machine places the container all the way to the bottom of the case, at 30 cycles per minute. Designed primarily with wine, liquor and beer containers in mind, it can also handle locking shape containers.
