A-B-C says its new Model 390 case erector fills a void in the mid-speed (30 to 40 cartons per minute) packaging range. According to the manufacturer, this powerful erector/sealer incorporates solid production features of A-B-C's high-speed models, ensuring top performance at a more affordable price.
The unit's large self-feeding case magazine holds up to three stacks of cases. As each stack is used, another moves into position, maximizing time between refills. The low level design makes it easy to refill without lifting cases. The case feed mech anism is designed to reliably deliver cases at high speeds, with dual spring loaded grippers that ensure proper feeding of warped and band-marked cases.
The cases are erected by a cam-operated opening arm that erects and holds them securely as the inner flaps are folded. The outer case flaps are closed during the case transfer, which is powered by a continuous motion main drive motor with sealed bearing linkage designed for long-term, high-speed performance. The servo-operated sealing ram is precisely controlled to enter the case and compress the flaps with optimum precision to ensure secure sealing during high-speed production runs.
