Tray Former Machine Series

Tray Former Machine Series

The TF tray former machine series is a perfect solution for forming and gluing die cut trays.  The TF tray former series is a simple, intelligent and very compact system that utilizes the same transport mechanism as our E-series case erectors.  The TF tray former features a low-profile, gravity walk-in case magazine that makes it very easy to load trays.  Only 4 easy adjustments are required for fast tray changeovers.  A computer controlled glue application system applies glue precisely to the tabs at measurable intervals, creating a very square and securely glued tray, every cycle.
