New Eagle Packaging machinery creates XL trays

Eagle Packaging Machinery has recently introduced the Vassoyo Air XL for forming extra-large produce trays with or without a lid. The tray former can create trays up to 60″x60″ and uses a Nordson glue system.

The new Vassoyo Air XL includes features like a pre-load station to stage up to 36 inches of corrugate, a powered mechanical lift to index tray blanks one at a time, and a vacuum blank sheet feeder to transfer blanks through the system for precise forming and gluing.

The Vassoyo Air XL has an upward moving forming section that allows the large blank to be formed squarely as opposed to the traditional downward mandrel plunging mechanism. Other features include Omron or Allen Bradley PLC and a 7″ color touch screen HMI with detailed operational instructions. The Vassoyo Air XL is customizable to run a variety of tray sizes.
