Watch the video to see how a small manufacturer of specialist confectionery replaced their original plastic trays with card. We supplied a refurbished and upgraded flow wrapper fitted with a card inserter and bespoke folding unit. Running with Natureflex home compostable film made their packaging fully biodegradable as well as significantly increasing their efficiency.
Another confectionery manufacturer removed their plastic tray completely by using one of our self powered top-brush units. Together with an adapted infeed this controlled and collated individual products as they passed through the flow wrapper and generated a multi-pack product packed in biodegradable film. A large pet food supplier used one of our top brush systems for controlling difficult round fat-balls on a standard flow wrapper without trays or other in-pack support.
With some products, removing the tray can be difficult. However, we can often add extra features and adjustments and achieve high speed tray-less packing on your own refurbished and upgraded machine or on one of our excellent 'better than new' models. If your product still requires support we can supply automatic card feeders and folders to replace the plastic trays. Some applications require the use of more specialist box motion, long dwell and inverted machines which can be very expensive, so the savings we offer are even more significant.
