AB AUTOPACK has released the model 60CZH30 tray packer, a low cost tray and shrink packaging system that enables small producers to pack their product for efficient handling in automated warehousing systems.
The model 60CZH30 was designed to fit the slow to medium production lines, featuring: simplicity, versatility, small size and small capital outlay.
The machine consists of a product infeed and collation section working in conjunction with an indexing tray carrier. The infeed section pre-groups the product, while the tray carrier draws the blank and pre-forms the tray before indexing forward to load the product, apply glue and fold the flaps.
When complete, the full tray passes through the shrink wrapper, where polyethylene film is wrapped around the tray then shrunk to form a solid pack ready to stack on pallet. The shrink-wrap film can be printed with bar codes to assist warehouse inventory management.
The machine features a Nordson Hot melt unit and a PLC control for precise index positioning and glue application.
Depending on product and method of collation, the machine can pack 12 to 15 trays per minute.
