SMI 23 05 2

• The new TPP automatic packer is a technologically advanced packaging solution that stands out for respect for the environment, advanced automation and flexibility of use.

• It was created for the secondary packaging of various types of cans by means of a cardboard pad applied onto the upper part of the pack.

• The model, showcased at Interpack trade fair, packs 0.33 L cans in 2×3 format.

• It allows to reduce the amount of packaging material used, without compromising the product protection and the pack functionality.

• These multipacks, which do not require the use of glue, meet the demands for environmentally sustainable packaging.


Re-packing in cardboard boxes

SMI 23 05 3

• The automatic pick & place case packer from the ACP ERGON series is the ideal solution for packaging in RSC cardboard cases (the so-called “American boxes”).

Cardboard box is a packaging with a simple, but effective design, optimized according to the size of the product to be packed and ideal to maximize the visibility of the brand on the shelves in the points of sale.

• The ACP 20 S ERGON case packer showcased at Interpack processes multipacks of 2×3 cans coming from the TPP ERGON machine, stacking them on two layers within the box.

• The result of the packaging process is a robust and resistant pack, firmly closed by adhesive tape.

• The case packer is also available in the version with box sealing by means of hot melt glue.




Compactness, easy management and advanced automation 


• The compactness of the end-of-the-line presented at Interpack is enhanced by the presence of the APS 620 ERGON automatic palletizing system.

Versatile solution for products processing, which is flexible in adapting to format changeover and efficient in avoiding damages during the handling operations.

Compact and ergonomic frame, that guarantees a considerable space saving within the production line and allows the operator to easily and safely perform all activities related to the installation, management and maintenance operations.

• Possibility to create several palletizing patterns.

• Operations managed by a user-friendly machine automation and control system, thanks to an extremely intuitive graphic interface.

Electrical cabinet, located outside the protection barriers, that remains cabled during transport and that can then be immediately installed at the customer’s plant.
