Kayat PTF-28 Intermittent Motion Wrap Around Tray/Case Packer

The Kayat PTF-28 is an intermittent motion wrap around tray/case packer for the beverage, food and non-food industries. Designed to handle a wide range of products, it packs up to 28 cases per minute, depending on the application.

Product enters the machine at random, in prearranged groups or lanes. The dual infeed conveyor gently advances the product to the Overhead Brake section. Product advances onto the lift table that holds the required formation. A corrugated case/tray blank is fed underneath the product and the entire product load and blank are lowered through the servo controlled forming section and into the servo-controlled indexing pocket chain.

Hot melt adhesive is applied as the case is indexed forward into the “case squaring” compression section. Upon exiting onto the discharge roller conveyor, the case is inspect-ed for unglued flaps. In the event of a down-stream stoppage, the machine can be brought to end of cycle within one case length.
