The Model 121S is two machines in one– a tab slitter and top case sealer– with a streamlined design that facilitates quick installation on the packaging line, and consistent operating speeds to 50 cases per minute, making it the production solution for high-speed beverage lines.
From start to finish, the Model 121S provides positive case control which is critical for successful high-speed operation. The metering belt infeed ensures proper case spacing, and high traction transfer belting provides positive case transfer.
As the case travels, the slitter mechanisms move on sliding rods to lift the flaps and cleanly cut the tabs. Four flap control and closing is accomplished by a combination of mechanical and fixed flap folders. The compression section has top and bottom belt drives for secure case sealing. Spring-loaded rollers support the top belt to ensure proper sealing of every case regardless of minor height variations.
Built for the rigors of high speed operation, the Model 121S is equipped with top quality components including self-lubricated air cylinders, automatic water eliminator, maintenance-free sealed bearings, and cast aluminum flap folders. The stainless steel frame is welded and bolted for strength, and machine guards offer high visibility for monitoring machine operation. A tape-sealing model is available.
