Compact Packing Line


Visit booth 2404 at PackExpo East on March 21-23 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA and see our HS Carton/Tray Former linked to the Bradman Lake RA60 Right-Angle Carton Closer ideally suited to smaller spaces.

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.

Extremely reliable and cost-effective, our solutions are based on more than 70 years experience in packaging equipment innovation to meet today’s market trends.

During the event, meet our packing technology experts and watch product demonstrations on how Bradman Lake provides true, single-source turnkey packaging systems to several industries from Process to Pallet.

We look forward to meeting you.

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.

The well-established HS Carton/Tray Former and RA60 Right-angle Carton Closer are suitable for different market sectors, including bakery & biscuit, chocolate & confectionery, dry foods, chilled & frozen foods, pharmaceutical, and consumer & healthcare.

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.
