The Tray-Pak® system

The Tray-Pak® system – Packaging Technology

The Tray-Pak[R] system from Delkor Systems provides a shipping crate that converts to a three sided shelf-ready display rack without requiring any extensive cutting of the corrugated material. The system consists of two small trays bundled together with a top pad and film. It provides the stability and stackability of a shipper, but with less bulk. And when the two halves are separated, it can be used as a shelf display. In one yogurt application, Delkor’s proprietary machinery automatically forms the trays and loads the containers. It then places the top pad and finishes with film encapsulation. The trays are sized to fit the bottom taper of the yogurt cups so that the completed dimension of the shipper is the same as the lid-to-lid dimension of the yogurt cups. The company says it can increase pallet density by about 8% resulting in lower distribution costs. The Tray Pak packaging system equipment is offered in the Model 140, 180 and 480 versions. It includes an integrated Delkor tray former with the loader along with the Model 112 stainless steel wrapper.
