340 case erector pp new

Case erector for large cases

For sealing large and oversized cases, here is the machine to do the job. It’s built tough, with a heavy steel frame, packed with rugged components that handle large kd blanks at top production speeds. It’s smart, controlling and documenting all operating data easily accessible at the operator station. And it’s proven in plant production to dependably erect, square, and seal large cases at top speeds for maximum performance on your line.

  • Run KD blanks up to 45” long x 42” wide
  • Easy load, low level case magazine
  • All mechanical drive
  • Rapid changeover with no tools
  • Seal with adhesive or tape

Features and Benefits

  • A-B-C Intelligent Control ensures precise operation

    A-B-C Intelligent Control ensures precise operation
Intelligent Control takes PLC logic one step further, to provide unprecedented control of line performance. Closed loop position feedback ensures precise timing of each operating sequence, utilizing non-contact sensors to provide input. The touch screen display provides real-time operating data, and allows independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings.
  • Easy load case magazine with positive indexing

    Easy load case magazine with positive indexing
The high capacity kd magazine holds up to two case stacks, and automatically indexes each stack into position to provide a continuous case supply with minimum operator attention. Cases are indexed with a combination gripper/sliderail system that is designed to accommodate out-of-spec corrugated and smoothly handles large, heavy cases.
  • Reliable, case-squaring mechanical transfer

    Reliable, case-squaring mechanical transfer
The mechanical walking beam transfer bars are mounted on synchronized transfer chain. This design provides additional squaring action as cases travel from erecting through sealing.
  • Positive flap folding

    Positive flap folding The major case flaps are gripped firmly as the heavy-duty rear flap tucker folds the inner flap, ensuring efficient flap folding and sealing. The continuous motion main drive powers the walking beam case transfer that squares cases as they travel. The main drive has a sealed bearing linkage that ensures high speed performance for the long haul.
  • Servo-powered sealing ram (Adhesive sealing)

    Servo-powered sealing ram (Adhesive sealing) A servo motor powers the sealing compression ram to provide full compression on every case and ensure a secure seal during high speed production. 2” or 3” wide Tape Applicator head (Tape sealing)
