Integrated Packaging Line Flexes Strengths of Texwrap, Quest and Serpa at PACK EXPO 2023

See how ProMach and its 46 brands have the expertise to develop turn-key solutions that span the entire spectrum for your next packaging line.

WASHINGTON, Mo., August 1, 2023 - The ability to collaborate between brands to develop and execute fully cohesive solutions is what defines the power of ProMach. A great portrayal of this integrated collaboration between Texwrap, Quest, and Serpa can be seen in action in booth C-3625 at PACK EXPO 2023, September 11-13, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.


This integrated line features filled canisters being tray packed, shrink wrapped and palletized - depicting packaging applications common in the nutraceutical and food industries.

PACK EXPO attendees will see a fully operating line starring a Serpa FG1 top load tray former that will be forming trays from corrugated blanks. Serpa top load tray formers are built with a heavy-duty frame and quick-change forming heads that make changeover quick, simple, and repeatable for 24/7 operation.

From there trays travel on the conveyor to a Quest QP200-SA2 case packer, where a FANUC SCARA and articulated robot orientate, pick, and place shrink wrapped canisters by CL&D into the awaiting trays. Next, trays containing 12 canisters each are wrapped with film on a Tekkra T-1030 in-line shrink bundler system from Texwrap. The Tekkra T-1030 is a continuous motion shrink bundler with servo driven seal bar and carriage, and is best suited for medium to high-speed applications.

Finally, a Quest Box Bot QB320 space-saving robotic palletizer picks up wrapped trays and places them on a floor level pallet to complete the demonstration. Every Box Bot comes standard with QBox pallet building software that allows operators to create new pallet patterns based on the size of the case and pallet. The Box Bot offers more than 24 standard designs to reduce complexity and lead times.
