Selflubricating chains eliminate the risk of cases being contaminated by grease or oil and also reduces the cleaning required to remove dirt caused by the mixture of oil and cardboard dust.
Patrick, I am not sure regarding the price difference between these two packers, but I am sure that both the Packers are pretty good. Probably, Kisters would be a bit more expensive than Ocme.
Anyways, I believe if you want any of these machines, you should have a capex of atleast half a million dollars. So, if you are prepared to spend that much money, you should definitely explore both the options.
If you are looking for an optimized and reliable solution within reasonable costs, then I might be able to help you. Please let me know.
All the very best!
Impressive! I know Ocme make very good wrap around packers. Does anybody happen to know the price difference between a similar speed Kisters and Ocme machines? About 40 packs per minute speed for 6x4 loose bottles format...?
