New packer machine supports tray, pad, or unsupported pack styles

Standard Knapp announces 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer

Standard-Knapp (standard-knapp.com), a worldwide leader in the manufacture of innovative packaging machinery, announces the 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer with Robo-Wand™ wrapping module, a single machine that can pack in three pack styles – tray, pad, or unsupported. Unlike other machines that lock customers into one pack style, the flexible and versatile 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer is ideal for co-packers who need to respond to customers with a variety of packaging needs.

Designed for ease of operation and maintenance, the new machine has the flexibility needed for producing more with less packaging materials, responding to “truck to shelf to consumer” packaging requirements, and reducing waste. The 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer boasts a wealth of new features, including a horizontally loaded tray blank magazine, a consistent low pressure in-feed, and a slide out film bed.

The horizontally loaded tray blank magazine is ergonomically designed for ease of use and simplified maintenance. Operators can load blanks without bending or stretching and can quickly spot any operational issues. The large tray blank magazine now comes standard with a 1500 blank capacity and as an option can be extended to hold 3000 or more blanks. Changing from one pack style to another is a breeze – the machine was designed to run unsupported, so changing to pad or tray style can be done in 15 minutes by simply selecting a new product on the operator interface screen and a small number of changeover parts.

The 298 Tritium Trayshrink Packer’s side film stand makes it easy to load new rolls of film. With its slide out film bed drawer and clam shell style design, maintenance is simple, and operators can quickly and easily recover from a jam. A new meter product in-feed is equipped with electronic sensors that create consistent low line pressure to allow for positive grouping and escapement of product. Smoothly and reliably, the in-feed guarantees steady release of product, with no tipping, product damage or mis-packs.

 The machine’s high-speed Robo-Wand wrapping modulecan be fully customized to follow the height and length of the final pack-pattern, providing a consistent, tight, wrinkle-free wrap. With the ability to run up to 120 trays per minute, the Robo-Wand also offers multi-axis control for limitless packing possibilities without the need for change parts.
