In addition, the VTP palletizers now operate up to 40 percent faster with the same flexibility and gentle product handling. Pallet patterns are built with the graphic user interface in the PC and users simply input package sizes and number of cases on a pallet. The software then displays the cases on the screen and users can arrange them as necessary and assign the pallet to start that pattern. With no interruption, the selected pallet automatically starts the new pallet pattern. VPS allows for an infinite number of flips or patterns for greater productivity and load integrity.

This machine is a 102-inch side belt drive top and bottom case sealer with a fixed packing station. The packing station, which is located on the infeed end, is an extended platform on which a case is set up. An operator folds the bottom minor flaps and then places the case on the platform. The erected case is then filled with product and the operator then readies the case to be sealed. Once the trailing minor is folded down, the case is assisted into extended side belts and a button is pressed to signal the machine to start the side belts. The case is then driven through allowing the remaining flaps to be folded and is sealed top and bottom and ready for shipping.
