Multi-packer

October 1, 2010


Reducing packaging waste and supplying flexibility to copackers, the Standard-Knapp Tritium multi-packer uses single-, double- and triple-lane configurations to arrange products in compact patterns for wrapping in film. The unit’s patented wrapping feature can be positioned at any point above the conveyor and moved to the right place to package the desired pack pattern; it can be programmed to deal with any size package, works at varying speeds and cuts packaging material consumption by eliminating the need for trays and pads. Wrapped products are sent through the packer’s tunnel which shrinks the film around each multi-pack. The machine can run fully registered advertising onto outside printed plastic labels.
