Corrugated trays come in many forms and sizes. Automate the process of erecting the trays to ensure consistent quality and optimize your process. NPP offer a range of Lantech Tray Erectors to accommodate various sizes and speed requirements.
Why Square Trays Matter
Square trays pack better, stack better, and protect better. They provide the structural integrity to deliver the performance their designer intended.
Fact: trays lose 30% of their stacking strength if their sides are not aligned.
There are barriers to erecting square trays. Thinner corrugated, temperature and humidity changes, and variations in tray blanks can cause trays to be “unsquared” or lead to machine jams.
Lantech Tray Erectors overcome these barriers through precise tray management and 100% control of trays throughout the entire erecting process, ensuring your trays perform as designed and are produced with maximum efficiency.
How Lantech Tray Erectors Make Square Trays
From the moment a blank enters the magazine until it exits the tray erector as a properly formed and 4 sides sealed tray, it is under complete control.
A unique pickup frame pulls the tray blank from the magazine and puts it into a horizontal position. Four snap-lock clips transport the blank to the forming position. During this transfer glue is applied on the blank. The blank will be forced through the forming unit, after which the sides of tray blank will be simultaneous pressed on all sides. Finally the formed tray exits the machine.
