Here’s a workhorse case erector built to manage the special requirements of oversized corrugated cases. It’s built tough, with a heavy tubular steel frame, packed with rugged components that handle large KD blanks at top production speeds. Its continuous motion mechanical case drive and “walking beam” case transfer provide positive case positioning and total control. This Model 340 case erector runs a full range of case sizes with quick crank-adjust changeover, and offers standard features that work to increase efficiency and reduce your maintenance tasks.
Easy Load Case Magazine with Positive IndexingThe 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.
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)
A-B-C Intelligent Control Ensures Precise OperationIntelligent 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.
Over Size Cases
Reliable, Case-squaring Mechanical TransferThe 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 FoldingThe major case flaps are gripped firmly as the heavy-duty rear flap tucker folds the inner flap, ensuring efficient flap folding and sealing.
