Also presented, the Presto Top Loader is an impressively
compact and flexible solution for the top loading of cartons
and trays in a precise, ordered, and layered fashion at a
speed of 400 ppm. The advanced tracking software,
unique geometry and optimized design of the Delta Robot,
allows this to be done within an incredibly small footprint
and very few mechanical parts, saving space on the
factory floor and reducing maintenance to a new

SIG Doboy

The Linium 301 Horizontal Wrapper is compact in size,
requiring less floor space and is more ergonomic for
operators. It is capable of over-wrapping both food and
non-food products in flexible packaging material for
protection. Servo technology provides consistent package
quality and simplifies operation and changeover. Machine
inertia has been reduced and isolated to provide durability
and efficiency. It is a versatile machine that can be
modified for hand fed operations or can be supplied with
automated feeding.
