Tray Forming & Erecting

Eagle engineers and manufactures amongst the largest variety of automatic tray formers.Each unique in design we pride ourselves in offering our clients custom engineered solutions that meet the precise needs of its application.

Our product offering includes:

PopLok™

Designed to take a tray blank, one at a time, from the hopper, and pull it through forming plows, erecting the side and end panels of the tray, while at the same time folding in the minor flaps. When the tray reaches the bottom of the vertical travel, a set of pneumatically controlled bars fold and lock the roll-over flap in place. The finished tray is then ejected from the machine.

Vassoyo™

Designed to take one blank tray at a time and pull it down with vacuum cups from the hopper. The blank is fed under the glue guns, where glue is applied to the minor flaps of the tray. The blank travels under the ram mandrel, where it is forced down through corner folders, forming the tray. The tray is held in a compression area until the next tray enters the forming section. This tray will then be dropped onto a discharge conveyor where it will exit the machine.

Vassoyo Air™

Designed to pull one blank tray from the top of the blank hopper. As the blank transfers to the forming section, glue is applied to all the flaps. The blank is then positioned under the ram and mandrel assembly. When the blank is in place, the ram fires and forces the blank down through the forming section of the machine. Here the minor flaps on the tray are folded in, forming the body of the tray. The tray is held in the forming section, allowing the glue to set on the minor flaps. Next, the ledge flaps are rolled over the ends of the tray and the side wings folded down and compressed against the retractable mandrel. The mandrel will retract, allowing the ram to move up, exiting the finished tray. When the next tray enters the forming section, the tray is discharged.
