Features and Benefits

  • Case erector with Intelligent Control ensures precise operation

     Case erector with Intelligent Control ensures precise operation Intelligent machine control takes PLC logic one step further to provide total control of operation. Closed loop position feedback ensures precise timing of each operating sequence through non-contact sensors.

    The full color operator panel shows real-time operating data and allows independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings.

  • Large capacity, easy load case erecting magazine

    Large capacity, easy load case erecting magazine The self-indexing case magazine assures a continuous case supply–as one stack is used, the next moves into position maximizing time between refills.

    The ergonomic, low level magazine allows easy refill without lifting and raising cases.

  • Case feed designed for reliable transfer of every case

    Case feed designed for reliable transfer of every case This case erector has self-adjusting, spring-loaded grippers that assure proper case feed from uneven stacks of warped or band-marked cases.

    Their unique "floating" design allows them to operate independently to grip each case firmly and provide a consistent and reliable case feed. Cases feed into position at the opening station.

  • Reliable case erecting mechanism

    Reliable case erecting mechanism Production-proven since 1990, A-B-C's cam-operated vacuum pullback case opener design is superior in running less-than-perfect corrugated. This method utilizes dual vacuum grippers- lower grippers provide solid compression to hold the case firmly while the upper grippers pull the case open.

    The case flaps are lifted to a slightly over-opened position to ensure smooth inner flap folding.

  • Servo-powered sealing ram forms square cases

    Servo-powered sealing ram forms square cases As each case travels through the sealing station, the servo motor-powered sealing ram firmly and reliably compresses the flaps to ensure a secure seal.

    Cases do not stop- the sealing ram moves with the case to ensure a secure seal, then cycles back to enter the next case as it approaches.

    The ram stroke is precisely controlled by the servo motor, ensuring optimum precision during high speed production runs for high speed case erecting.

  • Quick changeover

    All settings for every case size are accessed at the operator panel and rapid adjust cranks and slides with locking handles are used for adjustments to ensure quick and easy case changes.
