Roberts PolyPro, a Pro Mach brand, will introduce a semi-automatic handle applicator designed for brand owners and contract packagers at Expo Pack Mexico, taking place from 18-21 June in Mexico City.
With an output of 15-to-17 cases-per-minute, the applicator can apply handles in two-pack configurations as well as three, four, six, and eight-packs with a single operator.
The units have been designed for flexibility and change parts allow for various bottle sizes.
To accommodate variable production schedules, the machine can be moved from line to line.
The applicator and flexibility in choice of handles is an ideal solution in Latin America where sales are growing and companies are looking for a competitive edge, the company said.
