Cardboard punnets and trays for sustainable packaging, transport and presentation

Sustainable packaging is an important pillar of policy for many growers, producers and retailers. Unfortunately, there is no 'one size fits all' solution for the ultimate sustainable packaging. Its development differs per product, company and branch. However, punnets and trays made of sturdy, (food-safe) cardboard can form a solution for many different industries for the sustainable packaging, transport and presentation of products.

For automatically forming and gluing of punnets and trays of solid and corrugated board, Boix Europe offers two simple entry-level tray formers.

The MCT1/V punnet machine is an automatic and adjustable 2-headed tray former, which can set up 2 different sizes of trays simultaneously. The compact packaging machine is mechanically driven by 1 motor that drives 2 adjustable heads with the aid of connecting rods. This allows the mahine to simultaneously set up 2 different sizes of trays and punnets of corrugated board and solid board with a capacity up to 1.800 to 3.500 trays per hour (per head). No qualified technician is required for changing formats.

The machine is an entry-level model from the assortment of Boix Europe tray formers. The delivery time is approximately 30 to 60 days. The small cardboard trays and punnets that can be set up with tray former are especially suitable for packaging vegetables, fruit, prepacked bread, snacks, potato products and meat products.
