SetLine Packaging System

The A+F SetLine is a multi-functional, versatile Packaging System, which combines top-sleeving technology with end-of-line packaging functionality. It enables a huge variety of packing solutions for your products. This Packaging System is capable of packing single cups, cup sets and bottles, of various shapes and sizes.

With the SetLine Packaging System it is you who decides on how your product is presented to the final customer. Whether packing single cups, cup sets or bottles, directly into trays or cases, or applying a display presentation sleeve – everything is possible.

Due to its modular design, the Setline Packaging System can be directly interfaced to a filling line. The design and the operating capabilities of the SetLine Packaging System ensure not only the highest flexibility in product packing, but also vast cost savings.

  • SetLine’s modular line concept allows tailoring the configuration to your specific application.
  • SetLine can be integrated with FS/FFS Cup Filler lines with improved line efficiency levels against non-integrated configurations.
  • The integration of sleeving and packaging functionality in one line consistently reduces the footprint requirements and makes best use of available floor space in production areas
  • Filling and closing of the sleeves takes place from top. This allows cost savings due to reduced carton consumption, while providing tight and stable product sets for best presentation.
  • SetLine provides superior operational flexibility and efficient set-up procedures. Individual products or product sets can be packed into defined pack formats.
  • The proven, built-to-last design guarantees high reliability and low servicing requirements.
