November 9, 2015 | By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Nov. 9, 2015 – Standard-Knapp has announced the model 333 Vanguard Wrap-Around Packer, which it says produces a tight, square, cost-saving wrap-around tray or full case shipper.
Depending on the product and the case, the Vanguard offers speeds of up to 30 cycles per minute. Boasting snap-in parts and quick-handle adjustments, the unit promises to deliver reliable, repeatable changeover. According to the company, pneumatically-controlled top and side actuation provide “complete control” over compression, so delicate products are protected. Product comes in directly over the tray blank, which eliminates side push and unnecessary impact on the product, it adds. It can handle a range of product packaging, including cans, cartons, and bottles (glass or plastic), as well as multi-packs, tubs, and aseptic packs.
