The core competence of the equipment is its unique capability for seamless future integration with Bradman Lake’s innovative loading equipment to achieve full automation and yet retain initial capital savings. The equipment is also ready for integration with other Bradman Lake upstream primary packaging equipment, such as flow wrappers, and downstream tertiary packaging equipment, such as case packers and palletizers. Every machine is supplied ready for production as a stand-alone unit or as an integrated piece of a Bradman Lake turnkey packaging system, making Bradman Lake the ideal one-stop shop partner for packaging equipment. – From Process to Pallet.

The ergonomic modular design of the well-established HS provides the ultimate flexibility to handle a wide range of carton formats and sizes that can be rapidly adapted to specific requirements enabling our customers to easily meet the demands of the fast-changing markets at any time in the future. Features include forming rates up to 180 cartons/trays per minute, quick changeover, and an Allen-Bradley control platform.

Every machine is supplied ready for production as a stand-alone unit or as an integrated piece of a Bradman Lake packaging system.

Tooling Flexibility: The HS can be tooled to erect different styles of lock and glue form cartons and trays, ranging from standard three flap or front flap cartons, turn-over-end cartons, to hooded lid cartons, as well as shelf-ready display style cartons that include atypical shapes associated with seasonal products.

The carton former on display will be tooled to lock erect three flap cartons.

The RA60 Right-angle, three flap carton closer retains Bradman Lake’s FCC flexible rubber fingers that allow for cartons containing a product of inconsistent size, protruding above the carton base, to be closed without jamming.

It features a tool-less size changeover which significantly reduces downtime and increases productivity for customers that run several different carton sizes.
