Designed for low total cost of ownership, high versatility, and simple operation, the machines can be ordered in either automatic or semi-automatic configuration.    With a single head, the new applicator efficiently applies high-density polyethylene (HDPE) carrying handles to 4-, 6-, 12-, and 24-unit cases for most common bottle and jug sizes and material compositions. A single machine with change parts will apply 2-, 3-, 4-, and 6-pack carrier handles. According to the company, the recyclable HDPE 2-pack carriers compared to injection molded handles  were made with 41.5% less plastic than the injection molded handles. The handles lay flat for shipment and therefore 67% more handles/pallet can be accommodated.
