Meypack introduces “small3” solution for case packing

Processing small formations of small products within a small space, the VP 600 has fast format changeovers and hygienic design in a stainless steel execution

Meypack has designed its new VP 600 case packer for small, sensitive products in small formations. Due to its compact footprint, it can be integrated into every production facility.

The continuously operating VP 600 is ideally suited for sophisticated products, such as soft packages. In a further developmental stage, mini-bottles (glass and PET) will also be efficiently and gently packed.

The range of formats stretches from 70x 50x80mm up to 200x150x200mm (WxLxH) and in the standard execution, the products can be packed in trays, high board trays or display trays.

Few format parts, high hygienic standards

A small number of finely tuned format parts enable fast and reproducible format changeovers that can be carried out without any tools. A high degree of accessibility is made possible by low-maintenance linear bearings and guiding elements (no central lubrication necessary) and self-cleaning vacuum valves.

A design with sloped surfaces allows liquid to run off while the open design enables optimal accessibility without hidden corners or empty spaces. The Meypack engineers made a conscious decision not to use chains in the machine.

The product infeed of the VP 600 is carried out via a paddle chain with interchangeable belts that have product-specific pockets and paddles and are able to stack and erect products.

With a fast changeover function, the belts can be exchanged immediately and then automatically adjusted for tension and positioning. The infeed variation “mass flow principle” will be refined in a further developmental stage.

The blank magazines, which can be adjusted in height, are easily loaded and can be equipped with saw-tooth belts for the tray transport. This prevents the creation of too much pressure at the blank pickup.
