Direct load tray packer

December 3, 2003




The direct load tray packer from Douglas transfers glass jars, PET bottles, and cans from the infeed to the metering section without the use of metal pins. Pinless metering provides a rapid transfer and a quieter plant environment, according to the company. Speed capabilities run up to 70 trays per minute on a single layer 6-pack and double tier 12-pack.
