Main differences between the MAP1 and MAP3:
The MAP1 is a unit that you mount on an existing conveyor at a customer, the MAP3 needs to be put in line (which makes the line longer).
The maximum speed for the MAP1 is 80 pouches per minute, the MAP3: up to 150-180 pouches per minute (depending on product and size).
The belt-speed of the MAP1 needs to be much higher than with the MAP3.
Accuracy on the MAP1 is much lower, but for dedicated customers (vegetables, crisps) more than enough.
Although the accuracy is low on the MAP1 it is still a very good tool to flatten the pouches before entering a Case packing system. (Also minimum and maximum thickness will be measured to prevent oversized pouches enter the case)
