Features and Benefits

Model 170T Built for top production with less maintenance

Built for top production with less maintenance

A tubular steel machine frame provides stability and strength while eliminating catchpoints for dust accumulation, to maintain cleanliness for food plant requirements. All components that contact the product are constructed of stainless steel for smooth and sanitary product handling. Maintenance requirements are minimized with maintenance-free sealed bearings, permanetly lubricated air cylinders, air inlet regulator, and Venturi vacuum system.

Model 170T Quality production features

Quality production features ensure top performance

Operation is simplified with a low-level, easy to load tray magazine, which may be refilled at any time during operation. The magazine feeds from the top of the stack, for smooth, interrupted tray supply, and trays are transported by heavy, chain-mounted flight lugs for positive placement through loading and sealing.

Easy-open, gull wing style guard doors are standard equipment, providing complete machine containment yet ensuring easy access when opened. PLC electronics control operation, document performance and take the guesswork out of diagnostics.

Model 170T Features for gentle product handling

Features for gentle product handling

Numerous innovative features ensure gentle loading and smooth product handling. Harmonic motion drive is utilized to transfer the tray from loading to sealing to ensure the stability of each product load.

Steel folding arms securely square and seal each tray around the product load, for tight-pack trays that palletize well. Safeguards switch the packer to standby mode if the tray or product supply is interrupted, and resume normal operation when the supply returns.

Model 170T Versatile for changing requirements

Versatile for changing requirements
