Incorporating servo controls, the case/tray packer is easily programmed and adaptable to changes and adjustments, producing fast, repeatable changeovers when running a wide range of products, or when products or materials vary slightly. Smooth, quiet operation reduces component wear. Invex 3S features simplified diagnostics recipe-driven changeovers, and simple hand wheel adjustments. Control components are located at the perimeter of the machine for easy maintenance. OMAC Packaging Guidelines standards-based connectivity and an IEC conforming software structure make the packer PackML- and PackTags-ready.
