Standard-Knapp, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of innovative packaging machinery, announces its Versatron™ Case Packer with lowering head module. This module is ideal for customers looking for gentle, positive handling of their product, yet rugged enough for 24/7 operation.

The slide-out change part lowering head is equipped with color-coded change parts and pneumatics for quick, error-free changeover.

The lowering head module can be equipped with various gripper heads to provide safe, consistent damage-free placement of product into each case with zero drop. Depending on of size of the product, the lowering head can operate at 30 cycles per minute, the fastest rate among lowering head machines. Designed primarily with wine, liquor, and beer containers in mind, it can also handle locking shape containers.

The Versatron shares the features of all Standard-Knapp packers, which include long life, easy operations and maintenance that makes changeover simple and fast, excellent and easy to use human machine interface (HMI), and outstanding customer service.
