The Interpack (IPG - Intertape Polymer Group) USA 20-B, uniform, semi-automatic, bottom-only case sealer will help automate the process for the facility. Full installation, setup, testing and trials were performed with a group from Little Friends. Full training to operate the equipment, including refilling and re-threading the tape head, was provided by Shorr onsite.
By utilizing this machine within the Spectum Vocational Program, teens and adults will be able to learn vital skills and develop an understanding of appropriate work habits, attitudes and behavior, helping to further develop life skills and independence.
