Trayfecta belt drive
Belt Drive System
All models within the Trayfecta M series tray forming family share a common architecture which features a fully counterbalanced precision drive for smooth high-speed reliability.

The mechanically driven pick-arm assembly picks a carton blank from the magazine lane and places it into the shuttle.
Trayfecta shuttle Shuttle
Mechanically driven reciprocating blank shuttle provides positive blank location and adhesive application.
Trayfecta adhesive application Adhesive Application
For adhesive style cartons, hot-melt adhesive is applied to carton flaps during the controlled shuttle motion.
Trayfecta forming head Forming Head
The mechanically driven forming head drives the carton blank downward, through the forming cavity, to create a formed carton.
Trayfecta spring loaded cavity Forming Cavity
Forming activity occurs in a unique spring-loaded precision forming cavity that prevents jamming during the forming process.
Trayfecta carton discharge Carton Eject
The newly formed carton is positively ejected from the forming head and onto the discharge conveyor.
