Developed for applications in the 30- to 40/min range, the new Model 390 case erector is said to combine power and affordability. Its magazine holds up to three stacks of case blanks, cutting time between refills; dual, spring-loaded grippers ensure proper feeding of warped or band-marked cases. A cam-operated opening arm securely erects and holds as inner flaps are folded. During transfer, an outer-flap closing is powered by a continuous-motion main-drive motor with sealed bearing linkage.
