New case erector brings high end production features to midrange production lines
The Model 300 case erector for 10-25 cpm production lines–a midrange machine that offers key production features of A-B-C’s higher speed Model 330 erector to deliver 24/7 reliable operation in a streamlined machine designed to ensure accelerated ROI.
Key production features include an ergonomic, low-level KD magazine that is easy to load and includes automatic stack indexing that frees the operator for other tasks. The top-feeding KD magazine accommodates warped and band-marked cases and the cam-operated erecting arm over-opens cases by the outer flaps to ensure reliable inner flap folding. A mechanical main drive powers the walking beam case transfer that positively squares cases as they travel.
The Model 300 also includes clear sliding guards as standard equipment that offer high visibility and protect plant personnel by stopping the machine when opened. Maintenance is simplified with easy-access, exterior-mounted motors, sealed bearings, water eliminator, non-contact sensors and case backup eye. Changeover can be completed in minutes with no tools and simple crank adjusts to set points.
“We designed the Model 300 case erectors to give packagers in the 15-25 cpm market a solid production machine at a reduced price point. Our markets include food and dairy processors, snack manufacturers, small beverage companies, petfood manufacturers, household, personal care, and chemical manufacturers,” said Bryan Sinicrope, A-B-C VP, sales and marketing. The Model 300 is available in both tape and adhesive sealing models.

High volume case erector with new money-saving features
The Model 330HS has high performance features that reduce operating costs plus an on-demand adhesive system that is proven to save money. It is packed with production features that are offered as options on other machines. These standard features include a case discharge that gently uprights cases during transfer to the conveyor for smooth operation with no case backup; large capacity, easy-load KD magazine that can be refilled without lifting; and color touchscreen operator panel that simplifies setup and operation, with network capability; and full gull wing machine guards that halt operation when opened and lift to allow complete machine access.
This erector offers 5-minute changeover for quick return to production, eliminating the need for costly auto-adjust options. Case width and height are set with rapid-adjust cranks, and arm and back plate are adjusted by slides with locking handles. If sealing ram adjustment is needed (for a major size change), it is completed easily with one tool.
This erector is designed to accommodate tank-free hot melt dispensing systems and applicators that can reduce energy, maintenance, and adhesive expenditures and help packagers achieve significant savings on operating costs.
Finally, the Model 330HS takes less-than-perfect corrugated and keeps on running, with independent grippers on the case feed that accommodate warped and band-marked cases plus dual gripper case openers that over-open the outer case flaps to ensure easy inner flap closing for smooth operation even when running cases with poor manufacturers’ joints.
The Model 330HS combines reliable production at speeds to 40 cases per minute with moneysaving features that can make a positive impact on the bottom line.
