Meta® Duo

Meet the requirements of multiple retailers and e-tailers with in-house channel flexibility

By efficiently transitioning between packaging designs – including four-sided, eight-sided, HSCs, one- and two-piece shelf-ready packaging (SRP) designs and ship in own container (SIOC) – you can meet a wide variety of retailer requirements from a single, small footprint machine. Meta Duo eliminates the need for perforations or knives. The resulting boxes allow for easy opening and shelf stacking – while reducing labor and handling and improving speed to market.
