Above 30 cases per minute, packagers need a machine with more muscle, yet may find it difficult to justify the cost of added performance for top-end machines. A-B-C's Model 400HS is the solution for speeds to 40 cpm. This powerful erector/sealer combines production-proven features with a servo case sealing ram utilized in A-B-C’s high speed erectors. This sealing technology delivers secure sealing and square cases during high speed operation, ensuring top performance from the packaging line.
Large Capacity, Easy-Load Case MagazineThe self-indexing auxiliary case magazine assures a continuous case supply to the erector. As each stack is used, another moves into position maximizing time between refills. The ergonomic low level design makes it easy to refill without lifting cases.
Positive Flap Folding and Case TransferThe 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.
Color Touchscreen Gives You Total ControlThe color display shows real-time operating data and allows independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings. Its simple, step-by-step sequences simplify set up and operation. Non-contact sensors monitor machine operation and ensure precise timing of each operating sequence.
Hot Melt Adhesive
Case Feed Designed for Smooth OperationThis case erector has self-adjusting, spring loaded grippers that ensure 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.
Reliable Case Erecting MechanismProduction-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 automatic blow-back system keeps air lines clean.
Features for Reliable Operation•A-B-C’s Intelligent Control electronics provide total control of operation•Low level case magazine holds 3 stacks of cases (approx. 300 kd’s) eliminating frequent refills•Automatic case feed from top of stack by dual floating grippers to smoothly feed warped or band-marked cases•Dual top and bottom vacuum grippers that over-open cases ensuring proper opening of cases with poor manufacturer’s joints•Reliable walking beam case transfer•Self-lubricating air cylinders•Hot Melt version can be converted to tape sealing. Tape version can be converted to hot melt sealing.
Servo-Operated Case Compression RamThe servo-operated sealing ram is precisely controlled to enter the case and compress the flaps with optimum precision to ensure secure sealing during high speed production runs.
High Speed Gravity Discharge ChuteThe simple, stationary gravity discharge uprights cases and channels them to the conveyor under complete control, for seamless, high speed operation. This feature is standard equipment on the Model 330HS to ensure top performance on the case forming line.
