NR10 Neapolitan Wrapping Machine
Finally the NR10 Neapolitan wrapping machine will be on display, it is an adjustable high speed automatic wrapping machine for square and rectangle tablets. The machine can be supplied as a hand fed machine, or with an automatic feeding system.
The machine has been designed to use either single or double wrappers, with the outer paper taken from a stack of pre-cut labels rather than the more common reel fed systems.
