April 12, 2012, Tarpon Springs, FL – You need a workhorse machine to feed, erect, and seal corrugated cases every 1.1 seconds, shift after shift, and A-B-C’s Model 450 is a heavy duty, production-proven unit to handle this challenge. From the ground up, this machine is built for speed¬¬¬; inside its solid steel, welded and bolted frame is a continuous motion case drive powered by a hefty 3 hp motor, high capacity vacuum case system, and servo case sealing compression ram that ensures non-stop sealing. The large capacity case magazine is self-indexing to maximize time between refills, and case magazine extensions provide additional kd capacity. The case magazine’s low level design makes it easy to replenish without lifting cases.
The 450 is loaded with features to accommodate less than perfect cases. The opening arms “over-open” the major flaps to compensate for incorrectly slotted cases, and the vacuum cups grip each case from above and below to compensate for warped cases and ensure proper opening. A-B-C’s exclusive walking beam case drive automatically squares cases as they are transferred through the erector, and the servo-operated sealing ram ensures top precision during compression and forms square, well-sealed cases. A stainless steel case discharge chute automatically uprights the case to the buyer’s supplied takeaway conveyor.
A-B-C’s IntelligentControl makes high-speed operation automatic and provides real-time operating data, comprehensive production reports, and enables independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings. It erects and seals RSC and HSC cases at speeds from 20 to 50 per minute. At only 16’-9” long, this erector is easily installed on most packaging lines.
