MACPAC

The MACPac (MESH Automation Cell for case opening and packing) is a professional-grade, pre-engineered, robotics-based flexible automation cell. The MACPac is designed for case forming, filling, and sealing in a highly flexible manner.    Designed for quick change and often push button changeovers with good throughput and a robust build.   Perfect for short-run production of a wide array of products

The pre-engineered features and options make for a great value with quick deliveries, while also allowing for easy size and layout customization.

This third generation of design has been fine-tuned to provide a service life of greater than 15 years,  unparalleled fit and finish,  modern globally available hardware,  precision design for product repeatability, low process variability, and no tool changeovers of less than 10 minutes.
