Hartness (Greenville, SC) has introduced the OctoPack(TM) continuous-motion case packer. It packs plastic or glass containers of most shapes and sizes into a range of case types, including RSCs, corrugated trays, tab lock trays, and soft drink or dairy-type cases with or without partitions, of any depth.
Eight independent finger systems positively place containers for decreased breakage and noise. Product changeovers require no tools. Can reach speeds to 45 cases/min.
