  • Two opposing vacuum cups grip the blank at two sides for optimal carton opening.
  • Less demanding on the box quality because the box is clamped at three sides during case flap folding.
Failsafe bag opening
  • Mechanical grippers instead of delicate vacuum cups.

Perfectly controlled bag insertion
