Features & Specifications of the 1517 Case Erector

  • 6-foot right angle case magazine manually indexes case stacks into position. Power infeed belt optional.
  • Unique case selection system – enables machine to handle warped board, corrugated variations.
  • Opposing vacuum cups in erecting station – allow machine to slowly separate case as it is erected, effectively breaking score lines and over-glued manufacturer’s joints.
  • Seals with polyester, PVC and polypropylene tapes – for strong, durable, tamper-resistant seals using a tension tape head.
  • Hand cranks allow fast and easy changeover without tools.
  • Vacuum transducers instead of vacuum pumps – reduce downtime due to corrugated dust clogging vanes of vacuum pumps.
