The Tray/Cover Packer SOMIC 434 TD was developed for two-piece packaging models and leaves a lot of room for the customer. Here, the products are first packed in a tray and then covered - this is also referred to as an outside cover. This SOMIC packaging machine is also individually adapted to the customer's special requirements. A wide variety of product shapes and carton requests can be realized with it. In the first step, the tray carton is erected around the products. Then, in a second step, the cover blank is folded around the grouping and the carton is thus closed.
