Benefits of GP² Cover-1 System

+ One integrated system with components that can "talk" to each other. 

+ Zero time or adjustments for size changes provides true on-demand automation.

+ PT-1 Power Tower (the mother-ship or computer) controls the system, and can be logged in remotely by the GP² technical team for troubleshooting assistance.

+ Bar code scanner simplifies production. A bar code can be printed on the wrap. Once the wrap is scanned, the remaining system is automatically set up to handle this wrap or cover from start to finish. This means the rest of the system will know exactly how to cut, trim and wrap the case.

+ Entire Cover-1 system can be operated  by one person.
