Features and Benefits

Model 340 A-B-C Intelligent Control ensures precise operation

A-B-C Intelligent Control ensures precise operation

Intelligent Control takes PLC logic one step further, to provide unprecedented control of line performance. Closed loop position feedback ensures precise timing of each operating sequence, utilizing non-contact sensors to provide input. The touch screen display provides real-time operating data, and allows independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings.

Easy load case magazine with positive indexing

The high capacity kd magazine holds up to two case stacks, and automatically indexes each stack into position to provide a continuous case supply with minimum operator attention. Cases are indexed with a combination gripper/sliderail system that is designed to accommodate out-of-spec corrugated and smoothly handles large, heavy cases.

Model 340 Reliable, case-squaring mechanical transfer

Reliable, case-squaring mechanical transfer

The mechanical walking beam transfer bars are mounted on synchronized transfer chain. This design provides additional squaring action as cases travel from erecting through sealing.

Model 340 Positive flap folding

Positive flap folding

The major case flaps are gripped firmly as the heavy-duty rear flap tucker folds the inner flap, ensuring efficient flap folding and sealing.

Model 340 Servo-powered sealing ram for adhesive sealing

Servo-powered sealing ram (Adhesive sealing)

A servo motor powers the sealing compression ram to provide full compression on every case and ensure a secure seal during high speed production.

2” or 3” wide Tape Applicator head (Tape sealing)
