For high speed case erecting, choose the Model 450 case erector and sealer. This case former runs up to 55 cases per minute, providing square, well-sealed cases to high speed lines. Packed inside its compact frame is a workhorse machine, with a hefty 3 hp main drive motor that powers cases through erecting and sealing. With an easy-load case magazine, non-stop servo-controlled case sealing ram, computer-driven operation with touchscreen controls, this case erector is the top choice for speed, durability and reliability.
Large Capacity, Easy Load Case MagazineThe self-indexing 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 design of the low level design makes it easy to refill without lifting and raising cases.
Servo-powered Sealing Ram Forms Square CasesAs each case travels through the sealing station, the servo motor-powered sealing ram smoothly 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.
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.
Case Feed Designed for Reliable Transfer of Every CaseThis 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 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 case flaps are lifted to a slightly over-opened position to ensure smooth inner flap folding.
