Woodman Vantage

Multi-Bag Baler

  • Overview

    The Vantage provides an innovative, much-sought-after presentation for snack food packaging and merchandising: multiple bags of snack foods and low density products in a single high density bale. The bale is ideal for traditional single-serve, 100-calorie snacks and variety packs. The Vantage bale, strong on sustainability, potentially reduces corrugated cases, shipping costs and dunnage.

    The Vantage is built with the same Woodman tradition of packaging expertise and legendary reliability, including: servo motors, quick change features and off-the shelf controls, including an Allen-Bradley Insight® HMI.
