Rap-A-Mat®

Rap-A-Mat machine

WestRock’s wraparound machines are designed to provide efficient product accumulating and loading utilizing semi- and fully-automatic systems that require less operator labor and corrugated fiber. Whether using an RSC, FOL, POL or tray, these tightly formed, compact packages deliver high-performance stacking ability, reduced shipping movement, and material savings.

The Rap-A-Mat Wraparounds collate products directly from the packaging line – up to 15 cycles per minute, and enable size change-overs in less than 15 minutes. This solution is ideal for small can, bottle and carton items as well as large, difficult-to-package items.
