All A-B-C case sealers are built with gull wing style guard doors as standard equipment, for a winning combination of security and accessibility. Manufactured of painted steel with clear, polycarbonate inserts, the doors enclose the machine and are electrically interlocked to stop operation when opened, protecting plant personnel.
A-B-C’s guard doors offer several advantages when compared to hinge or sliding panel guards. The gull wing guard doors do not require lower guide tracks that can accumulate debris and become difficult to open. Lift-up doors allow complete access all machine components, while sliding panels can limit access to important components such as the adhesive application system.
When machine access is required, the doors glide overhead, eliminating the need to plan additional plant floor space that is required for hinge-style doors. The clear, high visibility panels facilitate observation of machine operation from any angle. Conveniently positioned side-mounted handles enable quick and easy guard door release.
