October 28, 2019 –SOMIC introduced its ReadyPack end-of-line case packing system at the PACK EXPO September 23-25 event in Las Vegas and it struck a chord with show visitors.
ReadyPack is a smaller version of SOMIC’s 424 T2 (D) machine and completely different than the larger SOMIC FLEXX III that was introduced a year ago. ReadyPack is also designed with a slower collating speed.
ReadyPack collates, groups and cartons products in trays, and open, wraparound, display, and folding cases. It does so with a capacity of 160 products per minute. In tray packer mode, it will case up to 18 packaging units per minute, but accounts for just 12 as a wraparound machine.
At PACK Expo, the machine ran pre-packaged pretzel flow packs in a standing upright position.
