The Roberts PolyPro MAS2 can handle applicator is designed to assist in the manual application of HDPE can handles to four and six packs of beer. Placed over the end of an existing single file canning line, a cylinder pushes two cans simultaneously onto a double file can track at a rate of 48 cans per minute. A platform directly adjacent to the track provides adequate space for two trays and a supply of handles, this allows the operator to optimize their tasks. The MAS2 applicator has an adjustable step platform to insure optimal leverage without sacrificing ergonomics. The MAS2 is available in a right or left-hand loading style to optimize placement within existing plant layouts.
