The case erector automatically erects cases of corrugated board with bottom flaps edge to edge. The bottom flaps can be sealed either with adhesive tape or hotmelt,
at a speed up to 25 cases / minute.
Pre-glued case blanks are positioned vertically in a horizontal magazine for being taken. The magazine can be refilled during production, without stopping the machine. A low installation of the magazine allows an easy and ergonomic refilling for the operators. A traverse with vacuum powered suction cups picks up the single case blanks out of the magazine and erects them precisely rectangular. Then the inner bottom flaps are folded and the case is pushed rightangled into the side belt conveyors. These are spring-loaded in order to compensate manufacturing variations in case dimensions. During the belt transport the outer bottom flaps of the case are automatically folded and closed safely with adhesive tape or hotmelt.
