A resource-economical alternative to film-wrapped shrink-packs, the Evolite packer is comprised of a container infeed module and a container strapping module. In the infeed module, the containers are divided into 2 continuous lane flows. 4 strapping units then create the LitePac packs in the container strapping module.  The system features fewer conveyors, reduced footprint, a simpler line layout, a smaller storage area in both the warehouse and the supermarket, and less pallet traffic.  Said to provide more than 50% cost savings compared to shrink-films as a packaging material.
