The ACF-400 off-line carton coder handles a wide range of cartons, sleeves, blister packs and leaflets from 0.1 to 6 mm thick with fast and easy changeovers. The carton coder handles both “crash lock” cartons and blister cards, operates in either intermittent or continuous motion mode and can be quickly switched via a setting on the touchpad. Machine parameters such as speed, index length and batch quantity are also set via the touchpad. The ACF-400 can be changed over in only one minute with no tools and no changeparts. The servo-driven ACF-400 transports cartons using a bottom belt and an upper pressure roller, which allows the coder to handle complex shapes, odd sizes and thinner material while achieving excellent registration. This compact off-line carton coder sits on castor wheels so it can be easily moved from one area to another. It operates at speeds of up to 262 feet (80 m) per minute, printing batch and production codes, expiration and sell-by dates, logos, barcodes and other graphics, depending on the capabilities of the printhead that is integrated.
