The new Versatron case packer with “soft catch” technology from Standard-Knapp is designed for high-speed packing of fragile containers, in particular challenging packaging applications with reduced and/or lightweight materials.

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 unique “soft catch” feature allows for maximum productivity and a reduction in machine downtime while dramatically reducing breakage.

A two-axis servo system allows the Versatron to actually “catch” the product as it descends into the case. The lift table moves the case to the “up” position and waits for a full grid. When the grid is full, the riding strips shift to the side and initiate the bottle descent. The lift table simultaneously moves the case downward on a velocity curve that ultimately achieves the same speed at the point of contact, cradling it gently and securely.
