Additionally, the HCP can pack cases with inner or outer fifth flaps as well as trays of product. The all-servo design features Allen-Bradley multi-axis Kinetix servos, allowing for maximum uptime, quick changeovers and simple operation. Operator-friendly controls from Rockwell Automation include ControlLogix and AB PanelView Plus.

A dual-arm servo assembly is used for case blank erecting and opening. Additional features include an automatic lube system, open flap detect/reject and an integrated case up-ender and print conveyor. A Nordson Pro Blue system with electric dispensing glue guns ensures fast, strong case seals. Category 3 Safety compliance is standard, and optional stainless steel wash-down construction is available. Custom in-feed and product-handling systems allow speeds up to 30 cases/trays per min. Applications include confectionery, food and beverage, pet foods, nutritional, pharmaceutical, and health and beauty products.
