Flexibility for a wide range of formats
Versatile case packer/lidder for metric ream sizes

The Model 163 combines a wide range of formats with flexibility in box styles. It is capable of producing up to 20 cases per minute (single ream stacks), in one piece cartons, two piece cartons, or both. A motorized size changeover option facilitates changes in 10 minutes or less.
Servo drive & control for performance and maintenance
Servo drives and control allow for smooth product handling and repeatable performance. It also results in fewer wear parts and less maintenance.
Precise blank control and positioning
The case packer/lidder uses flighted HTD timing belts, improving the transfer of both carton and lid blanks. No flight chains are used that can stretch or break, causing
product irregularities.
Touchscreen & small footprint simplify machine operation
A touchscreen makes machine operation easy and convenient. In addition, the Model 163 is a very accessible machine. The electrical enclosure is mounted to the machine to create a single, simple footprint - making the Model 163 ideal as a replacement for existing case packer/lidders.
