California-based SWF Companies has launched a new drop case packer designed to help make the packaging of dairy and beverage products easier and quicker.
The new DP 320 drop (case) packer can reach speeds of up to 25 cases per minute, and continuously packs various sizes of glass, plastic, fibre or metal containers in a wide variety of pack patterns and case sizes.
The DP 320 can easily be integrated with various SWF case erecting and sealing systems to form a complete case packing system.
The new packer is designed with an array of standard features, including a cross feed case conveyor, PLC controls, interlocked safety guarding and an auto jam shut down sensor. It also uses size changeover assist components, NEMA 12 electrical controls and a downstream photo eye for auto start and stop. The DP 320 also comes with a rough top case feed belt, low-pressure pneumatic case platform and plastic belting for smooth transfers.
Available options on the DP 320 allow each customer to customise a machine to their individual packaging needs. Options include alternate voltages, Steel-It paint, casters and upgraded PLC controls. SWF also offers NEMA 4 electrical controls, a three colour stack light, additional E-stop station and stainless steel construction.
