Servo-driven technology ensures product control in all machine phases from infeed to discharge. Servo operation at the point of motion ensures overload protection at all machine functions. The live servo-driven flap tuckers and compression offer tuck or glue for a wide range of carton styles. Menu-driven servo adjustments and precise screw adjustments result in more efficient and precise changeovers. Provides either continuous or intermittent motion operation.  Handles a variety of plant conditions from dry, wet to hostile washdown environments.  Easy to clean, sanitize and maintain.  The Vectra rounds out the company’s product line of secondary packaging solutions.
