Tooling Flexibility

Quick and easy to size change and ensure repeatability.

The Bradman Lake’s Carton and Tray Formers / Erectors 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.

Change part tooling is generally dedicated to a particular tray size, but for applications where many different cartons and tray sizes are required, an adjustable system can also be supplied to reduce the number of change parts required.
