Standard-Knapp, a manufacturer of packaging machinery, has introduced the Versatron case packer with Soft Catch technology. The company designed the case packer for high-speed packing of fragile containers. Standard-Knapp believes that the Versatron is well suited for industries with challenging packaging demands, such as spirits and wine, food, household chemical, personal care, and automotive.
Unlike many traditional case packers, which simply drop containers into their respective packaging, the Versatron case packer gently "catches" each container to ensure that each package is filled without damage. This "soft catch" feature allows for maximum productivity and reduction in machine downtime while dramatically reducing breakage, says Standard-Knapp. Furthermore, if a bottle or other container can be handled more gently, less material can be used to make the bottle or container. Versatron accomplishes this by reducing the "shock energy" of the catch by 80 percent when compared to a conventional drop packer. Taking 80 percent of the shock energy away enables the use of thinner gauge bottles and thinner glass, for example.
Standard-Knapp additionally offers 24-hour customer service assistance as well as extensive machine training programs for the Versatron APT Case Packer.
