Countdown to PackExpo

See both Top Load and End Load cartoning equipment on display and let us help you to decide which approach will be better for your application.

Each option has unique capabilities and offers specific advantages. Selecting the optimal cartoning method is essential to ensuring product integrity as well as process performance.

The exhibit will comprise:

Top Load HS Lock Carton/Tray Former & IL120 Carton Closer engineered to withstand caustic wash-down

The HS Double Head Lock Former uses a direct placement system and offers an operating speed of up to 60 strokes per minute. Its factory set tooling is both quick and easy to size change and to ensure repeatability.

This carton erectors will erect cartons secured by self-locking tabs and can be supplied as a single, double or triple head.

The formed cartons are then passed to the IL120 Three-Flap Carton Closer to complete the packaging operation.

The IL120 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.

Both the carton former and the closer exhibit a compact layout design, ideal for applications where space is at a premium and engineered to withstand caustic wash-down and eliminates areas where bacteria can hide.
