TF200 Tray Former

The IPAK TF200 automatic tray former is can form a wide range of tray styles including four-corner trays, one and two piece telescoping trays, and variations of triangulated corner and self-locking trays. The wide variety of trays formed means the TF200 is suitable for all types of industries and businesses depending on the demands of your tray. With precision servo drives providing an accurate blank advance and dynamic flap folding, the TF200 perfectly forms each and every tray to provide superior stacking strength and a perfect aesthetic. Furthermore, servos provide significantly reduced operational costs with less energy consumption as well as less maintenance required. Electrical servo motors utilize a fraction of the energy compared to traditional pneumatic motors while also significantly less wear and tear parts.

All IPAK tray formers feature colour-coded change handles and on-machine pictorial guides for simple and intuitive size change in under 10 minutes. Safety features such as interlocked safety guarding and standard tunnel guarding all ensure a safe environment for operators. The TF200 is also highly customizable with standard options like machine management and on-demand glue systems or more complex options such as extended magazines, enviroguard options and more.

  • Reliable and Accurate Tray Forming

    Precision servo driven blank advance and mandrel ensure each tray is perfectly formed to provide a beautiful aesthetic look and strong stacking strength. Dynamic flap folding ensure every flap is folded and compensates for recycled or poorly scored tray blanks.

  • Low Operational and Maintenance Costs

    Lower energy consumption and reduced service and maintenance due to the usage of servo drives provide long-term cost savings. Venturi style self cleaning vacuum cups also provide extended operation with minimal amounts of service required.

  • Ultra-Safe Operation

    Superior safety features including interlocking safety doors and additional tunnel guarding at the machine outfeed.

  • Minimal Training Required

    On machine pictorial guides for instructions on operation and size changes as well as Wexxar's WISE System which provides on board machine tuning and pictorial guides on machine faults and provides potential solutions when they occur.

  • Quick and Easy Tray Loading

    Easy load tray hopper for continuous machine operation.

  • On Demand Tray Forming

    Standard remote demand sensor that allows tray to only be formed when required downstream in the packaging line.

  • Dual Head Forming

    Doubles the throughput of the TF200 while only slight increasing the footprint of the machine. This option is provides space and maintenance savings while being less costly than 2 machines.

  • Extended Magazine (Pre-loader)

    Increases the capacity of the hopper by allowing trays to be pre-fed into the machine, significantly reducing the amount of time required for tray loading. This option can double or triple the magazine capacity depending on the option ordered.

  • Machine Management with Tri-Light Beacon

    Provides both an audible and visual alarm to advise operators of low glue or low hopper to ensure continuous operation and avoid potential downtime.

  • Outfeed Conveyors

    Outfeed conveyor provides a location to collect formed trays so they can be stacked or transported for loading or further processing.

  • Enviroguard Options

    Enviroguard options are available for added corrosion and moisture resistance.

  • Nordson Glue System Upgrade

    Upgrade your glue system to provide advanced features such as glue stitching, on-demand melting and other cost saving benefits which help reduce glue and energy consumption.
