Tray Packers typically erect a tray through the use of a reciprocating feeder and a series of lugs. The product is then collated into the proper pack pattern and then side loaded into the erected tray. Once the tray is filled with product the flaps are closed and sealed using either a glue or tuck method.
Below are the different tray packer models that AFA offers. Please note that AFA can customize each machine to your specifications.
