Model 335 Tablock Case Erector / Bottom Sealer

Model 335 tablock case erector and bottom sealer at speeds to 10 to 35 cases per minute

Here's a tablock case erector that's the ultimate in flexibility- it runs RSC Tablock, RSC, HSC and CSSC cases- with no change parts required. The secret is the built-in tablock flap folding module. When running tablock cases, it smoothly compresses tablock case flaps while protecting the tabs, for perfectly formed tablock cases. To run other style cases, simply operate the machine in tablock-bypass mode. A space-saving compact design and reduced maintenance features make this Model 335 case erector / bottom sealer the solution for your tablock case forming requirements.

Features and Benefits

High speed, mechanical operation and space-saving, compact design

The Model 335 case erector runs a realistic 35 cases per minute on a continuous motion, all-mechanical drive system. Each case blank is positively fed from the magazine by combination gripper/slide bar case transfer. A cam-operated opening arm and mechanical walking beam case transfer provide positive case handling and reliable operation throughout.

At only 19 linear feet including the extended auxiliary magazine and tablock module, this tablock case erector is 30% smaller than competitive machines.

Model 335 Color Touchscreen gives you total control

Color Touchscreen gives you total control

The color display shows real-time operating data and allows independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings. Its simple, step-by-step sequences simplify set up and operation. Non-contact sensors monitor machine operation and ensure precise timing of each operating sequence.

Model 335 Large capacity, easy-load case magazine

Large capacity, easy-load case magazine

The self-indexing auxiliary case magazine assures a continuous case supply to the erector. As each stack is used, another moves into position maximizing time between refills. The ergonomic low level design makes it easy to refill without lifting cases.

This case erector has self-adjusting, spring loaded grippers that ensure proper case feed from uneven stacks of warped or band-marked cases. Their unique "floating" design allows them to operate independently to grip each case firmly and provide a consistent and reliable case feed.

Simple tablock folder with bypass

This innovative method of tablock opening is the result of over 60 years of packaging machinery development. It's an original design that folds the flaps smoothly without stress on the tabs that can cause tearing or release. To run regular cases, the tablock module is set at bypass mode. It's that simple.
