An automatic carton erector is being used to erect cartons for bag-in-box containers of vegetable oils.
Installed by Accuweigh’s Budpak branch in Newcastle, the carton erector was just a small part of a turnkey drum and bag-in-box filling line supplied and commissioned. After the erected cartons are filled, they are then conveyed to an automatic palletising and stretch wrapping line also supplied by Budpak.
The DNC automatic carton erector is fitted with a powered magazine for storing up to 150 flat pack cartons which are picked up by a vacuum cup system which also unfolds the carton and sets it ready for forming.
The carton is then conveyed through the automatic carton erector and the bottom flaps sealed by the integrated hot melt glue system, ready for downstream manual filling and top sealing.
The carton dimensions for width, height and length are easily adjusted by a series of crank handles with the actual dimensions displayed in the carton sealer’s control panel. The sequencing of the model BE automatic carton erector is controlled by an in-built Siemens PLC which also allows for a manual override for one off single carton erecting/sealing as required.
With an output capacity of up to 1,000 cartons per hour, DNC’s BE carton erector and sealer is ideal for high throughput carton erecting applications.
