Servo Collation/Working Cell
Allows for high speed handling of flat-flow wrapped products, bars, and small pouches collated to single or multiple load stations.
Fast, repeatable changeover feature offers multiple enhancements.
Repeatability – rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to within +/- 1/32″
