Original Press Release:
Bradman Lake at the PackExpo 2010
Bradman Lake Inc., Rock Hill, South Carolina will debut a redesigned 3 flap carton lid closer at the forthcoming PackExpo Show in their booth number S-2338.
The IL120 Carton Closer (known formerly as the Compact 3), has been redesigned to incorporate a servo motor operated "lift and descend" feature which enables both infeed and outfeed section overhead conveyors to safely raise vertically if a carton jam up or stoppage is detected.
After the incident is cleared the overhead conveyors safely descend and the closer restarts. This feature replaces the manually operated pivot and latch method used previously. It significantly improves operator access from both sides of the machine. The machine has the capability of closing up to 120 cartons per minute and, as before, can be provided to customers in both in-line and right angle configurations to suit different plant layout requirements. Bradman Lake also plans to offer this new design feature in their low speed and high speed closers.
For the Bradman Lake Group, the introduction of the new IL120 Carton Closer represents another tangible sign of their commitment to continuous product development to meet the customers' requirements.
The Bradman Lake Group proves that its strength lies within the diversity of the product range spanning fully automatic high speed product handling, flow wrapping systems, roll wrapping, top load carton forming and closing machines, end-load cartoners, robotic top-loaders, shrink wrappers and robotic case packers. The considerable technical and sales knowledge residing in the Group means that it can design, produce and install completely integrated packaging systems that can meet the most exacting challenges of today's manufacturing environments. Bradman Lake will be exhibiting an integrated packaging system at the PackExpo booth number S-2338.
