Initially designed for the dairy and juice markets, the co.'s line of case packers for gabletop cartons is suitable for applications where gabletop cartons are packaged into corrugated cases. Packers can be designed as either horizontal, top- or bottom-load vertical machines and can pack half-gallon cartons at speeds of up to 33 cases/min, depending on the pack pattern. The horizontal case packer is designed for repeatable, rapid changeovers from 3-pack convenience cases to 4-, 6- and 8-pack cases of half-gal cartons. Other machine designs are available to accommodate half-pt, pt, qt and gal-sized cartons. Features include Allen-Bradley Logix controls, a multiple-case-size magazine and touchscreen operation with diagnostics. An open, stainless-steel construction meets NEMA 4X requirements. A carbon-steel construction is available, and requirements for NEMA 12 can also be met.
