A-B-C Packaging Machine Corp.: Case flap relaxer
A-B-C’s Model 36C flap memory relaxer eliminates flap pop-up during palletizing, assisting container manufacturers who ship in unsealed reshipper cases, and packagers who close packed cases for warehousing but require the flexibility to reopen the flaps to assemble specialty packs.
Cases are indexed from the packing station and are automatically timed into the infeed of the machine. Contoured cast aluminum flap folders fold the major flaps then the top scores are spray moistened to reduce the flap score memory and creased by multiple score crimping wheels. The use of cool water for flap conditioning eliminates the risks and high energy costs associated with steam-operated flap conditioners. The 36C is compact and easily adjustable for a full range of case sizes by simple hand cranks.
