939 APT Versatron™ Active Product Transfer Case Packer

Our top-of-the-line 939APT Versatron™ with Active Product Transport uses a unique active method of motivating product into the grid area– which is great for handling difficult shapes (non-round) or compressible containers. The 939APT also takes advantage of the Soft-Catch servo lift table.

  • Efficiently handles reverse tapered bottles, flasks, unstable bottles, personal-care containers, locking shapes, trigger bottles and other non-round products
  • New APT technology pulls product into packing area, eliminating line pressure
  • High-speed, integrated servo laning for maximum product delivery
  • Smooth transfers with pressureless product handling
  • Precise indexing of cases for maximum control
  • “Soft Catch” is quiet and gentle
  • Robust construction and extremely low-maintenance operation
