Jan 30, 2006

CINCINNATI, OH - ProMach, Inc. announced today that its Brenton Engineering division in Alexandria, Minnesota has acquired the Robocaser product line from Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed, Inc.

Robocaser, an advanced, robotic case packer, provides customers with a versatile solution for packing a wide range of bags, pouches, tubes, flow wraps and other flexible products into cases or trays. Depending on customer needs, it can be configured for multiple packing patterns and for packing different products into the same case, such as a packaged tube and a related pouch of refills at speeds up to 360 packages per minute.

Brenton Engineering, a leader in end-of-line packaging, shrink wrapping, robotic, and material handling equipment, will add the compact Robocaser to its existing product line of larger mechanical and automatic case packers, allowing it to offer customers a broader range of reliable and cost-efficient solutions for nearly any type of packaged product.

"Robocaser complements our product line of case packing solutions extremely well in both size and quality," said Scott Leuschke, Brenton Engineering Vice President and General Manager. "We strive to better serve our customers by continually offering reliable products and advanced solutions to unique packaging problems. Robocaser's smaller footprint complements our line of larger machines, helps us better serve our customers and offers an opportunity to win business in new markets."
