Original Press Release:



Standard-Knapp's Tritium(TM) Multipacker Wraps Multipacks with Ultimate Flexibility and Efficiency



Single, Double and Three Lane Configurations Make Multi-Packing Easy

Portland, CT-Standard-Knapp, a worldwide leader in manufacturing the ultimate packaging machinery, introduces the Tritium(TM) Multipacker, a continuous motion multi-packer capable of handling applications in the food, beverage and personal care industries. With single, double and three lane configurations, the Tritium(TM) Multipacker swiftly arranges products into compact pack patterns and wraps the configurations in film, thereby eliminating the need for trays and pads. The Tritium(TM) Multipacker then sends the packs through an energy-efficient heat tunnel to tightly shrink the film around each multi-pack.

This modularly constructed, stainless steel bundler is flexible and adaptable, and comes equipped with easy-access "gull wing" guard doors. These transparent, safety-interlock guard doors provide a clear view of all moving belts and chains, enabling more frequent "walk-by-maintenance". The Tritium(TM) Multipacker features both an innovative Robo-Wand wrapping section and precise servo-driven film cutting system. These features allow for wide product range capabilities, as well as increased speed and reliability. To facilitate machine maintenance, many steel chains have been replaced with timing belts which require no lubrication and create a quieter machine.

In response to the increasing industry pressure toward sustainability, the 597 boasts a carbon footprint narrower than competing bundlers. Thanks to its energy efficient heat tunnel, customers can now use less overall corrugate and in turn develop a greener, more cost-efficient packaging process.

The Tritium(TM) Multipacker includes a consistent, wrinkle-free bull's eye and bottom seal, and easy access pull-out film feed module. Standard-Knapp created this module, which pulls out like a drawer, in response to its customers' requests for a more easily accessible film feed. Operators can now quickly pull the film feed out on rollers for convenient inspection and maintenance.

Printed or registered film is used to wrap each multi-pack, which provides a larger area for product information and allows retailers to stock their shelves faster and with less waste. A company's marketing message can now be printed on the translucent film to promote the cost-saving multi-pack purchase.

The Tritium(TM) Multipacker comes equipped with Standard-Knapp's innovative Operator Interface, as well as the Zero-Gap II Infeed. The Operator Interface utilizes color touch-screen technology to offer a new level of intuitive machine control. Through computer-aided fault recovery, the Operator Interface reduces Mean Time to Recover (MTR) and increases efficiency for a broad range of challenging 24/7 applications. Zero-Gap II Infeed employs electronic sensors to monitor and control product movement, maintaining a constant low line pressure and maximizing machine uptime.
