The reason Sustainable Produce Containers exist is to replace plastic clamshells on a large scale. The Folding machine will help achieve that goal. All of the sizes are available in a “Kliklok” folding design. This design is a proven technology like that used in making English muffin trays. 

Stacks of flat Sustainable Produce Containers are loaded into the machines to be formed. The vacuum pump de-nester pulls the flat boxes down into the machine where the appropriate size forming head constructs the boxes. The finished open boxes can be then hand filled or dropped onto a conveyor belt to be machine filled.

We have several refurbished Kliklok Jr machines for sale or lease.
