Lantech has demonstrated its C-300 case erector at Pack Expo, showcasing a range of features that are said to make changeover faster and more intuitive for operators.

The company claims that the C-300 model delivers high reliability for a machine in the 10 cases per minute speed range, utilising a design that holds the case square and erect throughout the process.

The C-300 can erect and tape case blanks with unglued seams, damage and imperfections that jam other machines.

It comes standard with a powered infeed magazine and automatic ‘case on demand’ operation.

The powered infeed allows for a low, horizontal magazine position for easier loading and better operator ergonomics.

Powered infeed also ensures consistent feeding of single blanks from the time the magazine is full to the time it empties.

From the infeed magazine, a hinged pick-up frame grabs the case on two panels using suction cups.

By gripping two panels and squaring the case with the pick-up frame, even irregular or damaged case blanks are controlled through opening, then held square and erect for flap closing.

Special slots in the major flap folders prevent sideways movement of the case while it is pushed into the exit drive.

There, it is gripped on the sides between two belt drives that pull it across the tape head.

Set-up and changeover on the C-300 is said to be easy using hand wheels and calibrated counters – no machine components have to be unbolted or manually pushed into position.

The C-300 machine handles single-wall RSC and HSC cases, with B- and C-flute types.

Minimum/maximum case sizes are 7.7/8in L x 5.7/8in W x 3.7/8in H and 19.5/8in L x 13.3/4in W x 20.3/4in H.

Designed for zero maintenance, the machine comes standard with a three-year warranty at unlimited cycles.

Three different case erector models are available from Lantech, with larger case-handling specifications and maximum speeds up to 25 cases per minute.

Options include hot-melt gluing systems and standalone case sealers.
