PDC International Corp.: Multipacking system

The R-300 multipacking system from PDC International can be configured in three distinct ways: as a multipacker, as a shrink labeler, and as a combination multipacker/shrink labeler for individual products.

Systems can be set up for shrink label projects, and can be set up off-line, for multipacking on an “as needed” basis. Multipackers accommodate rigid packages, cartons, bottles, cans and special shapes. Systems engineered for pharmaceutical products adapt easily to boxes, bottles and blister-packs. Suitable when packages are identical, and when they are different in type and size. For difficult applications the R-300 is integrated with special product handling that groups and orients the products in dual counter-rotating timing screws, then hands them off to servo-controlled gripper belts. This allows precise product handling and best-possible presentation of the packages for sleeving.
