IPAK TF385/485/486

The newest generation of IPAK tray formers feature 3 machines which are able to run most tray types in the market. These machines are based on the same platform but feature a different frame size depending on the size and type of the tray required. The new IPAK tray former platform is extremely flexible and brings high amounts of consistency and centralization. Customers and distributors are able to stock a lower number of spare parts while reducing the amount of training for operators on multiple machines, allowing for reduced downtime and overhead costs..

Industry Leading Usability and Reliability

IPAK tray formers utilize reliable and precise technology to form a perfectly square tray, ensuring the perfect aesthetic look and more importantly, superior product protection. Active compression section, servo driven blank advance and self cleaning vacuums are just a few of the technologies used in our tray formers.

Furthermore, IPAK tray formers all feature a user-centric design, with an intuitive design to reduce the amount of time required to learn, operate and maintain the machine. Quick tool-less size change in under 20 minutes, large 10" HMI touch screen controls, and large doors to allow easy access to changeover and maintenance points.
