A-B-C Packaging Machine Corp.: Case erector/bottom sealer
A-B-C’s Model 330T case erector/bottom sealer seals with tape at speeds to 35 cases/min.
The 330T is built for production with a heavy, channel steel box frame construction, mechanical main drive, and solid walking beam case transfer to provide reliable operation with less wear and maintenance. The low-level, easy-load, case magazine automatically indexes case stacks into position ensuring continuous case feed. An extended magazine is offered to minimize line operator attention.
The case infeed is designed to run warped and band-marked cases, and cases with poor manufacturer’s joints run smoothly due to the forgiving design of the case opening module. Cases are squared during transfer by the walking beam transport system and a dual belt conveyor maintains the square through tape sealing, for cases that provide optimal packing and palletizing.
The Model 330T offers no-tools changeover for an extended case range from 7-in. L x 5.75-in. W x 3-in. H to maximum 22-3/4-in. L x 16-in. W x 15-in. H, and operation is precisely controlled by PLC electronics with full access to all functions at the touchscreen operator panel.
