The CTR-A Series skin packaging machines are designed for medium to higher volume applications. They incorporate an automatic board/product in-feed system, retractable radiant panel heating system touch screen controlled for precise heat distribution and an automatic packaged board discharge system. The CTR-A series skin packaging machine are PLC time controlled for precision repeatability. These machines are a sturdy welded steel construction with removable panels for servicing.  The CTR-A Series are available in the standard sizes and also custom sizes.


The operator places the board on the in-feed bed, loads product and depresses the cycle start button to initiate the automatic skin cycle. The board/products are automatically advanced in to the vacuum pan. At the end of the film heat and vacuum cycle, the film frame un-locks and opens. The automatic eject advances, clamps the board and proceeds to pull out the board. The hot wire film cut-off  separates the board from the film web. . A new section of film has automatically been loaded into the clamping frame during this process. The film frame rises up and a new cycle could be initiated if the operators has loaded a new board and products on the in feed table.
