Eastey, a manufacturer of shrink packaging equipment, automated case erectors, tapers, and material handling solutions, is using PACK EXPO Connects to introduce the ERX-15 Automatic Case Erector designed to efficiently form and seal the bottom of corrugated cases in a single pass.
The ERX-15 Case Erector from Eastey is designed to automatically erect and seal the bottoms of corrugated cases at production rates up to 15 cases per minute. The ERX-15 is designed to keep production and maintenance efforts at a minimum while providing fast, efficient case erecting, making the ERX-15 an ideal alternative to manual case forming.
The ERX-15 Case Erector enables a single operator to form, seal, and pack corrugate cases. Operation is simple: load up to 200 cases in the case magazine hopper and set the system to run or jog mode. Separators release the leading blank case where a series of eight vacuum suction cups hold the case in a properly formed square position. After a set of stationary flap folding bars fold both minor and major bottom flaps, the case is then transitioned and the bottom is sealed with Eastey’s proven EX tape head.
The versatile design of the ERX-15 allows operators the flexibility of adjusting on the fly with easy-to-use hand tighten knobs and cranks. No tools are needed and users can complete a changeover in minutes. ERX-15 features a wide range of case sizes as large as 19.5 in. L x 19.5 in. H x 15.5 in. W.
Dual 1/4 HP side drive motors, eight precise double vacuum powered suction cups, and aggressive industrial strength drive belts make ERX-15 a workhorse that will stand up to today’s toughest challenges. Each case erector is made from steel with a powder coated exterior to protect the system from abusive industrial conditions and ensure years of use.
