Engineered for the most complex carton forming applications, the PopLok® tray former with display inserter is commonly used in the pharmaceutical, medical device, beauty, health and consumer electronics industries.
How fold and tuck carton forming works:
The machine pulls a tray blank, one at a time, from the hopper, and pulls it through forming plows and erecting the side and end panels of the tray while folding in the minor flaps. When the tray reaches the bottom of the vertical travel, a set of pneumatically controlled bars fold and lock the rollover flap in place. The finished tray is then indexed in position to load the insert. The insert blank is picked from the hopper, folded and formed before the plunger pushes it down and places it into the formed tray.
