Pack Air has designed our Grippers to be modular in design but unique in operation. Initially designed as an in-line elevator/lowerator, Pack Air has added functions such as product upending and inverting, lift sections for diverting, and a rotating discharge which allows products to either be conveyed in-line, inverted, or upended, depending on product changeover requirements.
