Douglas Machine Inc: Multipack sleever

Douglas Machine has customized its Apex Sleever to improve package integrity, product visibility, and improved shelf appearance for multipacks of bottles and cups.

The Apex Sleever, for packing 2, 4, or 6 pack bottles of health drinks and drinkable yogurt, positions and locks bottle tops into notches in the sleeve and folds gussets into the bottom corners of the sleeve to contain the base of the bottles. 

For multi-packing cups of Greek yogurt, the Apex places the bottom of the cups into individual holes in the sleeve.  The sleeve is then wrapped around the top of the products and sealed.

The high-speed capability of the Apex and its ability to tightly contain multipacks of cups and bottles provides new package options for producers.
