Flexibility for a wide range of formats

Versatile case packer/lidder for metric ream sizes
The Model 163 combines a wide range of formats. It is capable of producing up to 20 cases per minute (single ream stacks) in two piece cartons. 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.

Optional: semi-automatic size change
With this option, size change cycles can be reduced to 10 minutes or less. Programmable recipes ensure easy
repeatability of set-ups.

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. 

Optional innovative feature: robotic blank load cell
For an easy and fast handling of lid and carton blanks, the Model 163 can be equipped with a robotic blank load cell.
The robot will pick stacks of blanks from a pallet to place them onto the hopper of the case packer, hence eliminating
the manual work needed for replenishing blanks.
