Machine Descriptions

The Model 1001-M/A machine was developed and designed for the entry-level market to close Display Cartons with an automatic Gluing System. It comes in two variants:


1001-Manual Machine

Operators need to load the pouches or product manually into the cartons and place the cartons with the top flap open onto the infeed guides and then push the cartons manually forward or they can place open cartons on an infeed conveyor. The “product present” sensor will detect the carton in the forming box and the glue will be applied automatically onto the glue-flaps. The carton will be pushed into the forming box to close the flaps and the next cycle will began.


1001-Automatic Machine

Pick and place unit, with vacuum suckers, will erect carton from the carton magazine and the carton will be placed open and ready for loading of the product. Product will be loaded with a linear infeed system automatically into the
opened carton. The carton pusher with a linear system will push the carton forward and the flaps will be closed automatically. The glue will be applied automatically onto the flaps while the carton is moved forward by the linear system. The glued carton will be pushed into the forming box to close the top flaps.


1003-Self Lock Tray Erector

It is an automatic self lock tray forming machine. Carton magazines need to be filled manually and the machine will stop automatically if the minimum level sensor is activated. During the run cycle vacuum suckers collect the flat tray and move it into the forming section. Short tray flaps are folded 90˚ by the stage 1 pusher. Once completed the tray is pushed into the stage 2 position where flaps are folded into their lock positions. The cycle repeats itself once the tray pushers are in the front position.
