Bradman Lake Top Load Packaging Line at PackExpo 2014

The Bradman Lake Group will be participating again this year at PackExpo Chicago (November 2-5, 2014) at the McCormick Place Exhibition Center. 

Bradman Lake will be exhibiting on booth S-3647 a completely integrated top load cartoning system comprising three main machines, with interesting new features.

The HSS 3-axes servo motor, high speed, carton former will be the latest double head version for erecting cartons with hot melt glue or lock style. It will represent the new, low profile, machine version which provides a low level motorized carton hopper for easier operator access.

Glue formed cartons will be automatically transferred to the robotic DRT Product Toploader which will incorporate the newly designed end-of-arm tooling techniques to pick, rotate and place products into cartons so that different layer collation patterns can be created.

Completely filled cartons will then be conveyed into the RA90 right angle flexible carton control, lugless, 3 flap carton lid closer. The version demonstrated includes the newly introduced, servo moto driven, lift and descend overhead carton lid control conveyors. These replace the earlier cantilevered design and provide excellent operator access from all sides of the machine and facilitate rapid size change.

The Bradman Lake team will be available throughout the event for consultation and advice regarding equipment solutions for horizontal flow wrapping, multipack wrapping, roll wrapping, carton forming, robotic product top loading, carton closing and case packing equipment.  We look forward to seeing you there!
