Douglas: Tray coding for shrink pack systems
Douglas Machine’s “long side” tray coding solution for its Contour Tray Packers and Shrink Pack Systems prints any side of a tray during the high-speed tray packing of food, beverage, and pet food containers.
The new tray coding solution transports the flat tray blank so that these panels travel parallel to the print head and with the print side of the tray facing upward. This improves printing reliability and speed. Printed trays are then loaded with product, formed, sealed, and shrink wrapped. Contour models provide speeds exceeding 100 cycles/min.
