New case erector brings high end production features to midrange production lines

Tape case erector for midrange packaging 15-25 cpm

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

m330-case-erector-money

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.

Shrinkwrapped packs with no corrugated support are palletized smoothly

A-B-C introduces Palletizer with Unique Features for Handling Shrink-Wrapped Bundles

A-B-C introduces Palletizer with Unique Features for Handling Shrink-Wrapped Bundles

A-B-C Packaging makes quick work of palletizing shrink-wrapped bundles including personal care products, health and beauty aids. This palletizer is a mid-range model that orients, stages, and palletizes at increased speeds, while offering convenient floor-level operation, and an economical price tag. 

Features for handling shrinkwrapped packages include optimized handling techniques for gentle product conveyance. To ensure smooth product transfer the palletizer is equipped with a low friction layer forming table and low friction rollers on the transfer table. A motorized product sweep mechanism efficiently guides product layers to the palletizing zone. Product load stability is facilitated by cushioned four-sided squaring mechanisms that square each layer on the pallet.    

The Model 72AE palletizer is designed for maximum flexibility to run a range of shrinkwrapped products, interchangeably on one machine.  A-B-C palletizers are low-level machines that offer the benefit of all operation and maintenance at floor level, while accepting product feed from low, medium or high level conveyors. Efficient electric motors provide whisper-quiet operation and are precisely regulated by A-B-C’s exclusive “Intelligent Control” through the full color operator panel. Pallet patterns and product types are pre-programmed to allow quick changeover- the attendant simply selects the new product type and returns to production.

Palletizer replaces hand labor for cosmetic and personal care packaging

Case palletizer’s brain and brawn are the solution for increased productivity

This palletizer automatically stacks corrugated cases, trays or molded foam trays, serving a wide variety of packaging functions.  At less than 16' long and 8' wide, the small footprint of the 72A makes it easy to install in limited floor space.
Standard features include A-B-C's "Intelligent Control" electronics, which allow the palletizer to be linked to a central line controller, giving cosmetic and personal care packagers complete control of each product batch.  An optional case orienter turns each case to display the panel with bar code information on each case- for efficient product tracking.  

The touch screen control center offers automatic setup for daily, shift and batch runs, plus on-screen diagnostic reports and real-time machine status.  The on-screen case counter and preventative maintenance message reports keep plant personnel informed and in control.
The variable frequency motor drive of this palletizer ensures smooth and gentle operation, by controlling the vertical motion of the elevator table.  The programmable layer retainer bar automatically centers each load to ensure accurate placement on the previous layer.
