German food manufacturer buys twin-handed case erector

The first Interpack exhibition is delighted to announce its success after selling ARPAC’s fully automatic dual handed case erector MCE-3400 to a German food manufacturer, who bought it  from the show’s stand.  

The ARPAC twin-handed case erector

ARPAC Europe Ltd General Manager Tony Hacker is pleased with the achievement of their first Interpack exhibition:  “Not only did enquiry levels exceed our targets, but we also sold our Fully Automatic Dual Handed Case Erector MCE-3400 from the stand on the last day of the show!” he explains. 


Nihat Serindik, Managing Director of Akser Fine Food in Duisburg, was so impressed with the cost-effective Arpac machine that he placed the order there and then. It was its unique ability to handle left and right handed cases as well as its solid footprint and ability to handle cases of variable quality that convinced Mr. Serindik that is was the right machine for him. Having just taken delivery of the machine he is excited about the upgrades it will make to his end-of-line operation in terms of both efficiency and cost.


The MCE-3400 uses a patented erecting mechanism that can be easily changed from left to right hand. It comes with a highly effective flap folding system to cope with poor quality cases and its compact dimensions make it ideal for restricted areas. Furthermore, because the machine is arranged in an in-line layout i.e. cases are loaded, erected, sealed and discharged in a straight line, the MCE-3400 can be located in any position to suit the system layout.


The ARPAC group has been producing a wide range of packaging machines for over 30 years with 30,000 machines installed to date. The range includes Shrink Wrappers, Case & Tray packers, Pallet Loaders & Wrappers together with conveyors and a full system integration service. ARPAC Europe provides a complete sales and support function in Europe based in the UK.
