Rennco designed the Micro VCCL based on feedback from customers operating with limited floorspace but needing the same throughput and labor savings as achieved on its traditional VCCL packaging systems.
The key component of the Micro VCCL is a proprietary shuttle tower infeed that eliminates the need for the traditional staging area and belt infeed. This is where the reduction in footprint is achieved. The dual-lane tower design is capable of handling 330 cups/min per lane. The machine also maintains cup reject and manual reload functionality for quality control.
The machine can be integrated with upstream and downstream automation through its Allen Bradley processor, and customers have the option to attach a common case packer to the discharge area to increase returns in efficiency.
