Original Press Release:
ECT-625 Hot-Melt Forming Machine Erects Top-Load Cartons and Trays
Kliklok-Woodman's ECT-625 carton forming machine employs a 4-station rotary turret design for continuous carton blank control, short movements and smooth forming action. Cartons are formed with hot-melt adhesive, applied from a pressurized nozzle applicator, for exceptional package strength and rigidity. The system is available in single or double-head configurations with speeds to 75 CPM (single cavity) or 140 cartons/trays per minute (double cavity).
The ECT-625 operation is fully automatic. At its first stage, the turret style head receives carton blanks from an easily-loaded, adjustable, low-elevation powered hopper. Blanks are drawn to the forming mandrel, which incorporates vacuum carton hold-down, to maintain precise carton control. Adhesive is then applied to the corners of the carton from a pressurized application system with various options for special adhesive patterns. The body of the carton is folded in place by a reciprocating cavity that provides double compression action for improved bonding. Formed cartons are mechanically ejected and positively stripped from the forming head onto an integrated take-away conveyor for direct transfer onto packing conveyors.
A large size range and a variety of carton shapes can be erected through the use of simple size change parts. The ECT-625 can operate as a stand-alone tray-forming unit, or it can be linked to an entire system with automatic product loading and carton closing machines.
