Fully automatic drop down continuous wrap around cartoning machine designed to be integrated in a high speed production line complete with:
Multilane feeding system
Two chain conveyor plastic belts separately powered and controlled by Inverter.
Pneumatic device to facilitate the product flow in the various feeding channels.
Product guides easily adjustable for the various sizes; as an option it is available the adjustment with wheel for a faster size change.
Maximum filling sensor to check product accumulation upstream the machine infeed.
Minimum filling sensor at each infeed channel: in case of product lack in one channel the product separation stops and the machine waits for the arrival of new product, automatically restarting.
Control sensor for possible fallen product: in this case the machine stops signalling the alarm to the operator.
The bundle is then taken over by a series of bars that mate to the cardboard that arrives from the lateral carton blank storage. During the transfer to the drop down station the transversal gluing is performed.
Multilane feeding system
The carton is formed around the bundle ("wraparound") in a non-stop mode.
During their descent the front and the back flaps are folded.
Top side is folded over as soon as the partially formed carton starts moving towards.
The closure of the little flap is executed with an upper chain conveyor.
With a non stop motion the 4 side flaps are folded and the glue strips are applied on the four central flaps subsequently folded.
The side flaps are then pressed by means of side rolls during a non stop motion.
High capacity blank magazines
Bottom and lid blanks are positioned vertically onto the magazines. A servodriven and pivoting arm takes the blanks from magazine with vacuum suckers and turns them of 90° orienting and positioning them on launchinggroup which transfer the blanks inside the machine.
A signal warns the operator when the carton level is too low. Refilling is possible, from an ergonomical position, meanwhile the machine is running.
Max capacity of the magazines is 1500 mm.
