for collating, grouping and packaging products in folded cartons, wrap-around cases, display cases or open trays
The wrap-around packer can be equipped with individual format tools for varying product dimensions and case models. This allows unlimited flexibility within the format range, which is why every SOMIC 424 machine is so distinctive.
The pre-packed products are fed into the machine individually and grouped into one case. Handling a wide variety of pre-packed products places high demands on the system. They are collated individually in rows, layers and complete groups.
The folding head holds the group in shape and positions it on the flat tray blank. The blank is folded around the entire product group and the folding head and glued with hot melt adhesive. The closed folding head ensures that the case is always precisely folded and glued.
The key factor here is that we are not dependent on the product so that its attractiveness at the point of sale is in no way impaired.
