Automated Tray Former for Irregularly Shaped Self-Locking Trays
The PopLok, by Eagle Packaging Machinery (eaglepm.com), is a customizable automatic tray forming solution designed to erect self-locking corrugated and paperboard trays with or without a lid, and is capable of forming 1-tuck, 2-tuck, and multi-tuck trays. It is built in a welded steel frame and constructed with durability and longevity in mind.
This automatic tray former operates efficiently by gently pulling tray blanks, one at a time, from the hopper to a forming section where precise plows then erect the side and end panels of the tray. At the same time, the minor flaps are folded and the tray finally passes through a set of side bars that fold and lock the roll-over flaps into place.
Using no glue or tape, PopLok handles a large variety of blank sizes and configurations to produce an impressive finished tray. Delicate machine handling ensures that tray graphics are not marred in any way for retail-ready display requirements.
