The PC-4500 uses up to 20% less corrugated material than conventional regular slotted case (RSC) case packing systems. The system collates the products, loads the corrugated cases or trays and closes them with hot-melt glue. The PC-4500 provides tight packages minimizing the need for partitions while protecting glass containers from damage. If needed, the system options allow for automatic insertion of partitions, dividers or pads to increase product protection.
The PC-4500 receives product, groups the product into patterns, automatically feeds corrugated blanks, forms the blanks around the product pattern, applies hot-melt glue, holds the wraparound case in compression and produces a finished, shippable case. The system is easily adjustable for varying product sizes, speeds and product patterns. The PC-4500 runs trays as well as wraparound cases.
A rugged machine that minimizes labor requirements, increases productivity, and reduces packaging materials. The PC-4500 integrates easily into new or existing lines of packaging equipment.
