A 3-horsepower drive motor powers the continuous-motion main drive. A soft-start soft-stop motor ensures smooth operation and minimizes machine wear. Floating case grippers operate independently to ensure reliable case blank feed from uneven or band-marked stacks. Cases are opened by dual gripper assemblies that flatten each case as it is gripped for opening.
