Features and Benefits

Model450-high-speed-case-erector1A-B-C Intelligent Control ensures precise operation

Intelligent Control takes PLC logic one step further to provide total control of operation. Closed loop position feedback ensures precise timing of each operating sequence through non-contact sensors. The color display shows real-time operating data and allows independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings. 

Large Capacity easy load case magazineLarge capacity, easy load case magazine

The self-indexing 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 design of the low level design makes it easy to refill without lifting and raising cases.

Case feed designed for reliable transferCase feed designed for reliable transfer of every case

This case erector has self-adjusting, spring-loaded grippers that assure 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. Cases feed into position at the opening station.

Reliable case erecting mechanismReliable case erecting mechanism

Production-proven since 1990, A-B-C's cam-operated vacuum pullback case opener design is superior in running less-than-perfect corrugated. This method utilizes dual vacuum grippers- lower grippers provide solid compression to hold the case firmly while the upper grippers pull the case open. The case flaps are lifted to a slightly over-opened position to ensure smooth inner flap folding.

Servo-powered sealing ram forms square casesServo-powered sealing ram forms square cases

As each case travels through the sealing station, the servo motor-powered sealing ram smoothly and reliably compresses the flaps to ensure a secure seal. Cases do not stop- the sealing ram moves with the case to ensure a secure seal, then cycles back to enter the next case as it approaches. The ram stroke is precisely controlled by the servo motor, ensuring optimum precision during high speed production runs for high speed case erecting.

Quick changeover

All settings for every case size are accessed at the operator panel and rapid adjust cranks and slides with locking handles are used for adjustments to ensure quick and easy case changes.
