TF350 Tray Former

The IPAK TF350 fully automatic tray former specializes in retail ready trays and other trays with fold-over windows and walls. Renowned in the industry for its innovative rotary folders, this machine excels in precision folding, providing a perfectly formed and folded tray each and every time. Even with high quality graphics and print, a display tray can look uninviting or "cheap" if it is not properly formed and folded. Furthermore, a properly formed tray will provide superior stacking strength, ensuring the product is properly product and nicely presented when it reaches store shelves.

The TF350 features the intuitive WISE System for user-friendly HMI controls and color-coded change handles with on machine pictorial guides for a quick change over that can be performed in under 15 minutes. Safety features such as interlocked doors and additional tunnel guarding ensure a completely safe operation.
