The Hamrick packer is said to cost 40-50% less than robotic pick & place units. Quick-change pattern plates can adjust to fit multiple sizes and pack patterns, and changeover can be completed in less than 15 minutes. The unit can also function as a drop packer, and can easily accommodate even the smallest or largest containers.

Standard features include: vertically mounted case lift assembly with stainless steel self-aligning top plate; aorbothane shock pad to reduce drop impact; pneumatic container agitator assembly for consistent lane accumulation, and prevention of lane jams; stainless steel container and case guides; heavy-duty structural steel frame assembly; infeed case prime photo eye; outfeed case back-up photo eye; fully enclosed stainless steel chain return pan with drain plug; NEMA 12 electrical components; polished stainless steel base frame covers; safety interlocked Lexan guarding; steel-it corrosion resistant paint; centralized cluster lubrication points’ two instruction/parts manuals; one packing head with quick change pattern plate to fit one size round or non-round product; pattern plates may use vacuum cup, gripper bar, or bladder depending on application; and overhead soft-set assembly mounted over top of packing head.

Each piece of Hamrick machinery comes with a 1-year warranty and the HMS 100% money-back guarantee.
